Just before last weekend, I lost about 50 pages of my writing. Not that I really lost them, as in “oops: I deleted them accidentally”, thank goodness. No, the LaTeX style sheet I was using had the wrong page size. I was seeing 540 pages, but my publisher said the page size was wrong. They got to the bottom of it, and sent me a patched style sheet, which “stole” fifty of my pages! The width of the page increased, therewith reducing the volume I had by that amount. :-( But since the purpose of my writing is not simply to create lots of pages, it doesn’t matter what so ever. Apart from that, I literally spent the whole weekend working on my book, and you know what? I’m almost back to the original page count. :-)
