Walking home from work yesterday, I lost my flash drive. I hoped it fell out of my pocket in the bathroom at work, but no such luck.
That means I’ve lost a fair bit of work. Thankfully, not as much as it could be. You see, I’ve done the bulk of my re-writes by hand, then transposed those changes to a document on the computer. Most of the changes not on the current document on my computer can be re-entered.
I work on hard copy as I edit as I find it easier to spot things like typos and strange word choices. Now I’m glad I work that way.
The part is that prior to yesterday, I had only fifteen pages left to re-write. Today–not so much.
