The strange case of the vanishing post
… which would make for a good, if derivative, Holmes pastiche.
But after all, aren’t all pastiches derivative?1
The fact is, my scheduled post from last night vanished without a trace come the morning – which is somewhat apt, in a fantasy/horror sort of way, but it also means I’ll have to rewrite it from scratch.
It’s the second time something like this happens in ten years of blogging.
The first was about two years ago, on my Italian blog.
I was going through a massive writing bout back then, too.
Rule for survival: NEVER schedule your post late at night when suffering from sleep deprivation.
In other news, I’ve started re-watching the Jeremy Brett Holmes series, and might, one day, write about it.
Or write a Holmes pastiche.
Now, I’ll go and catch some sleep.
