OH MY GOD! I just had this moment of sheer fucking panic. I accidentally hit some weird combination of keys that just...froze my entire computer while I was in the middle of saving the DF NaNo fic! And there was this whole, SHIT! MY FIC IS GONE AND I CANNOT RECREATE THIS SHIT AT THIS LATE DATE! WHAT THE FUCK UNIVERSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And then I remembered that I was backing up the fic, so it was only the last 2,000 words that would be gone, maybe. Which would be bad enough. And then I restarted the computer and it was only the last two or three sentences, where I hadn't saved yet that were gone.

Lesson of the day: Save as you go, and don't try and type while half asleep.


  1. Glad you didn't lose too much! Still, scary.

  2. Luckily it wound up being just the last two sentences and since I'd just written them I remembered what I wanted to say. It was terrifying. I was convinced it was all gone, even though I know it doesn't work that way.
