Lost my flash drive :(

I suffered every teckie's nightmare--I lost my flash drive. Thank goodness I keep copies in other locations--like my laptop--but I lost the most recent draft of my novel Son of Ogres. So I find myself having to redo that edit again. It will only take a couple of days, but nobody likes having to redo what they thought was already done.


PS: No word on the submitted query letter yet...I will keep you posted.


  1. Remember to hang on to stuff! I knew you would have a back-up..

  2. Ugh, that's true. Nobody likes having to re-write something that they've already written down since it's rather hard to do it from memory. Having your flash drive damaged either virtually (like getting a virus or having its contents hacked) or physically is quite troublesome. It's better to invest in a more secure and more durable flash drive. If it ever gets lost, you can be secure that nobody will ever get to that data but you. No worries for getting your work stolen.

  3. Thank goodness you were able to save your work on another device. It would be a pain to retrieve or re-write them. But think of it this way - you can make your work more polished with the re-editing. - Marko
