Last year, I met a writer from British Columbia on Authonomy and we became pen pals. She reads my work; I read hers. Today, she sent me this dreary message that her computer was making funny noises. She shut it down, cleaned the dust out of the case, and rebooted. Or, at least she tried. The computer wouldn’t cooperate.
She has some work saved in Google docs, other ideas that she emailed to me and can retrieve from her sent mail folder. However, many of her recent edits across three books in her series are lost if her computer tech can’t get the data off.
Please, please, pretty please, with chocolate, whipped, and cherries on top…get yourself an account with an online storage service and use it!
