But I don’t know if my computer is capable of saving them. I can’t find the document anywhere, and I fear it’s gone for good. So much dialogue.
Had that happened to you? Have you been able to get it back? I hold out hope that I might, because Cohiba makes his living on these machines.
And I am generally a hopeful person.
How has your week gone? Any plans for the weekend?

Oh no, I hope you find it! It must be so frustrating 😦
It happens to us all, I fear. My worst experience with the black hole was when it swallowed a complete manuscript – 190K words. I had other copies, fortunately, but the one that went was the product of several painful weeks of editing, which I had to do again. These days I just save and save and save…
I find I am doing the same thing, saving compulsively.
Oh no! I lost about 30K words of a story I’d written a few years ago (I wanted to revisit it and try to work on it), but it was mostly missing. (It was a Word doc from an older program and random chapters were left, weird.) Anyway, anything I write now, even if it’s just putting together my kid’s report for school, gets backed up on Google Docs. Two places can’t eff it up, right?
My husband used to lead climbs, and still likes to say, “Two is one, one is none.”
