a horrible thing to see

(today turned out grey and chilly. figures…but we spent most of it watching movies, anyway.)

I kept going on my work breaking up the novel, and ran into something I’d forgotten about that just about stopped me cold: “RETYPE LOST DRAFT HERE.” Um, yeah. Which means that it’s a section that I lost when a disk died, imploded, or something. I know it’s in the big printed draft, but that does mean that there’s an unspecified number of pages that need to be typed. arg. and I have this vague memory of it being a fairly long section, too.
