I rewrote my lost work as best I could. Ended up short of what I had, so I began a new chapter with a new MC. He recently turned into a vampire. It's getting pretty fun on my ship, so I will not be thwarted. Now 50 years into space, the story is vastly different from what I worked on last year and shared during 'WonderSaga Wednesdays'.
I haven't really been posting any here, but if anyone is interested, I have my opening as my excerpt on my NaNo page
and I'm occasionally posting excerpts in the excerpt posts over at nanowrimo
