Have you sent me a submission or an email in the last couple of days? Well, I may not have gotten it.

I hate it when that happens.

I had a computer glitch pop up. I won’t go into the details, but all of a sudden all of the email I had worked and deleted showed back up again. That’s not so bad. I just check them against the logs and the ones that I’ve worked I can just delete them again.

But how about messages that have come in and haven’t been worked yet. Near as I can tell, those are just gone. Bummer!

I don’t know what I can do about it other than put the word out by social media and hope anyone who has sent me something and not gotten a letter of acknowledgement (I try to always acknowledge submissions) will see the note and re-send.

The only alternative that I see is waiting until they write me to check on it and I have to admit that I don’t have it. There aren’t that many, maybe a couple of dozen, but that’s a couple of dozen more than I would like to see this happen to.

Did I mention that  I really hate it when something like this happens?
