i got a long way to go

so, my house was broken into on friday afternoon.  this is such a violation i can't even wrap my head around.

my computer was, of course, stolen.  i had not saved SO much work.  i lost it all.  pretty much 40 pgs of the new book + other projects--poems, short stories.  i've got an amazingly supportive and loving team around me, but despite this necessary fact, i am so upset.  it's been a tough year:  here is for hoping this is the bottom and that i can find it in me to write this book from scratch again.
