Sad Stuff

Only another writer knows the pain of having your son, who you just blog-loved yesterday, get into your computer and somehow delete 5000 words that you loved, too.

Remember when Amy threw Jo's book in the fire?

Feel bad with me. I will be rewriting, but will I remember it all????

    j/k. :) Seriously, I feel your pain. This has happened to me before, though it was my computer that ate it. Its an awful feeling! But don't worry, it will come back. You'll be surprised.

  2. I totally feel your pain. I've felt that way when I lost some changes I made, it's a horrible feeling. I 'm sure it will come back better than before.

  3. I just got a little sick to my stomach on your behalf. That stinks!

  4. I'm so sorry. That'd make me cry. Do you have an automatic back up system? Like Time Machine for the Mac. That let's you go back to previous versions.

    My kids deleted all my agent research off my bookmarks (not anywhere close to 5000) words, but I got it all back because of Time Machine. I love Time Machine!

  5. I know this feeling! I'm so sad for you!!

    On the up-side, I find when I have to rewrite things I've lost, I end up with something better anyway. Here's hoping you do too!

  6. Oh my. I do hope the muse leads your fingers to recall every word you lost.

    Have faith. You'll get it back. It'll be even better.

    Nice blog you have.
