Back Up Your Work

I had a break-in over the weekend and they took both my computer and the thumb drive that held my back up files. I was worried until I realised that I had a hard copy of the books that I could just retype. Yes, it would be a lot of work, but at least I hadn’t lost 12 years of work.

It may be old-fashioned, but don’t ever lose all your work by having it in one place. Other than the books, I lost a hundred or so short stories. Those, by the Good Graces, are on the web, too, so I haven’t lost everything completely. Back up your back ups. Put them on your website, even if you don’t link to them. Print them out on paper.
