Let This Be a Lesson to You

Hey, you. Yeah, I mean YOU.

Right now, go back up your computer.

Right NOW.

Because my laptop died while I was on vacay.


With no warning.

One minute, everything's fine. Next, DEATH.

The hard drive makes tiny bleating noises, like a lamb to slaughter.

The screen flashes and fades, like the light from a dying man's eyes.

It's gone.

Luckily, I'd backed up my recently finished book--because I'm obsessive about backing up my writing work. But the five years of lesson plans, worksheets, and presentations? Yeah, not quite so obsessive about that.

I've read a gazillion times to back up work.

Or else.

So now I'm telling YOU, yes, YOU to go back up your work RIGHT NOW.

Consider yourself warned.

Cause this? This sucks.
