Evening gentlemen - thank you again for your positive comments - they mean a lot to me. After having time to calm down and get over my hissy fit - I have reconsidered and will finish the project. I remain though gutted at losing all of last night's work - 7 hours worth. It's not just a matter of re-typing it because of the way I put the narrative together. I use my original notes taken in Madrid for inspiration - form a rough idea of what I want to say - then research the outline - to make sure I spell names and place names correctly - also dates are checked if I'm going to cite them - ditto book titles and the like. Then I start writing - it comes together as I type - to some degree it's spontaneous - so impossible to replicate but then again you won't realise - your never got to read it. Thanks again - I shall return. Yours - I.
It is all sent to try my friend.
Look forward to your future work.
