A Very unfortunate announcement

I regret to inform everyone who was awaiting my next chapter of Harry Potter with anticipation that it looks like you'll be waiting awhile longer. I'm not really sure what happened, but it looks like my file has become... corrupted? I don't know. I tried opening my file today and this really strange option box called ASCII Filter Options opened up on my Openoffice program when I tried opening my file. When I clicked Ok, because really, what else was I suppose to do, my file for chapter six appeared like this:

##################################################################################################################################################################################

Essentially, what I have now is 8 pages of THAT, where before I had nearly 16 pages of writing.

I have no clue how to fix this, I can't find any automatically saved back ups, and I did not have a back up of this anywhere else. So unless one of you guys knows how to fix this, it's going to be a while before I can post the next chapter.

Hmm... Naw, I got nothing.

Another day, another post. You guys will be pleased to know I'm practically finished with my next chapter of Harry Potter and the Heir of Slytherin. I just have a little bit more to write, then do some proof reading and we're good to go. Really, this chapter practically wrote itself.

I had originally planned on working on Gaia's Sennin first, but because this chapter practically wrote itself and came out so quickly, I decided to just crank chapter 6 out. Yeah, sometimes my muse just works like that.

There's not a whole lot for me to write about today. No one's been asking any questions in their reviews that I have not answered. Or at least, no one's been asking any questions that would not spoil the plot if I did answer that I have not answered.

I am a tad worried about the lack of updates for other fanfics. The only writer who updates with any frequency is megamatt09, and as interesting as his stories are, they're not really well written. Grammar issues, you see.

Paradox Jax did update one of his stories recently, Experiments in Empathy, which is probably one of my favorite Naruto/fem Kyuubi stories because it's one of the few where the romance does not happen instantly. But aside from him and people like 0 Jordinio 0 and jerryway69, who have also updated a story, updates are coming in at an all time slow.
