Finally, Chapter 62: Designs in Crime is up at my website!
This is an extra long chapter, rather like two chapters in one. LOL.
My laptop of six years recently crashed, unfortunately. I had backed up most of my important files except for some extensive artwork I've been doing over the past two months and a bunch of media files. I had forgotten about the artwork, a lot of which I was really fond of and had worked on for a long time. I'm hoping I will able to at some point rescue these files from my now defunct Samsung laptop harddrive through Windows XP Recovery Console, though I am not sure if I do have the disk back home. I'll figure something about. I acquired a Sony VAIO to replace this laptop mainly for aesthetic reasons more than anything else. Lol.
The first day, I hated Windows Vista as much as I thought I would. The second day, I was a little better. I hate the new Office as well. It made me very little motivated to edit Chapter 62, because I had no clue where all the different features were. The whole visual aspect of Vista irks me--I like things written out plain and clear, which is why I always liked Windows XP. I'm hoping Windows 7 will be an improvement. I am irritated that I lost a bunch of programs as well, though I'm quite addicted to the Chess game. Lol. I'm glad to have a properly working Internet and a bigger RAM. I am not a big fan of the widescreen aspect because I use my laptop mainly for writing and drawing, for both which I believe all that extra width is a waist of space and unnecessary; I'd rather have height on the screen.
In terms of the chapter itself, I had a lot of fun writing it because I got to finally get to the "core" of the different subplots. It's no fun to write about an amnesiatic heroine, so I'm glad Sakura's memories have returned. I had been drawing up outfits for the fashion show on my old computer before it crashed. Lol. I also had all the artwork for the New Trials Ending 2 Theme: Koucha. Oh well.
