About two weeks ago, for various reasons, many involving laziness, I stopped making daily backups of my computer (the home beast)
Last night, my computer decided that it was no longer going to turn on. Push the power button and nothing happens. This is the second time this has happened to this machine. It’s still under warrenty, so after being on hold for AN HOUR the tech decided that they need to replace the mother board.
Chances are that everything on the harddrive are fine.
But. I have no backups of all the work I’ve done on the novel for the past few days. I’m taking today off — not going to try to write on it. Tomorrow I’ll get back on the horse — just start writing the next chapter — not try to finish the current chapter.
I’m really pissed at myself. As I said, I used to make daily backups. I stopped, and now I’m paying for it.
