It nearly came to this.
Been away from blogging for several days. Among other stresses: a software error caused a file of mine to be overwritten with random data. The result? Three weeks of hard, grueling writing down the drain. Yes, I know about file recovery programs – didn’t work, as the file was actually over-written, not merely deleted. Yes, I usually back up often. Learned a hard lesson about that. And I normally use programs which auto-save every couple of minutes, but I hadn’t been lately. Learned a hard lesson about that too. Kind of under the gun to finish that writing now.
