Hey, you. Yeah, I mean YOU.
Right now, go back up your computer.
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.
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.
So now I'm telling YOU, yes, YOU to go back up your work RIGHT NOW.
Consider yourself warned.
Cause this? This sucks.
