So there I as this morning, all bright-eyed and bushy tailed, working blissfully away. I had to move back and forth between chapters, seeing if something had been revealed already or not. So I'm moving and clicking and suddenly...wait! What the -- !
The computer froze. I had to restart.
I'd saved some of the chapters I'd cut material from, but the main one I'd been working on?
You guessed it.
But wait! Doesn't it automatically save things?
Yes. So I hit "revert to saved Chapter Nine."
But it reverted to an even earlier version from this morning.
Fortunately, I save everything on diskette (yes, I still use diskettes. My cell phone also has an antenna. Scoff away!) so I had all the material I was in the process of moving. And then I had something called "documents" -- the other files I hadn't closed before I shut the computer down. I labeled those "A" - as in Original File NameA. I sure wasn't deleting anything!
What a morning! Oh, and I also discovered that, for some strange reason, Chapter Six is only eight pages long. What the heck is up with that???
