Who's an idiot? Oh, I know! I know! *jumping up and down and waving frantically* Me!! Me!! It's me!!!!!
My 4 month old laptop is where I keep all my writing. 15,000 words of one book, 6 or 7 other 1,500 - 5,000 word stories. Outlines. Notes. Oh crap - just remembered another - dunno - 10,000 or so word beginning of a book.
Was I smart enough to back it up? *shakes head*
Is the hard drive dying? *nods head*
Will it ever come back online long enough for me to slurp out my files? *weeps*
Oooh! Lookie! It's my own personal hell. :oP
