Have you ever toiled over a paragraph until finally you've gotten it worded just right...only to find you clicked the delete key and your computer freezes and in an instant you've lost it all? It's happened to me before. Now what would you do if that paragraph was not just a paragraph but your entire novel?
My greatest fear is that I will somehow lose all those years of work I've invested in my current novel. My brain, as creative as it is, comes up with these crazy scenarios and I imagine that my laptop and zip drive somehow get destroyed, at the same time. Argh!!! That's a nightmare.
So how much should one back up their work...I think it's a valid point.
Anyone want to share their expertise, or horror stories?
