My husband is THE BEST. I got a new computer yesterday – my old one is dying a slow, painful death and needed to be put out of her misery. I love the new one, except for one thing. It didn’t have the old Microsoft version of Solitaire. The version on the new computer was just wrong.

Solitaire is the mindless thing I do to get ready to write. Also the mindless thing I do when I’m stuck on a plot twist or a character. So it’s crucial to my writing process.

My wonderful husband went into my old computer, found the file, and somehow managed to get it on the new computer. It took him a long time. But I’m now a very happy writer.
