I’m listening to the rattle of computer fans. It’s getting louder.
So, I’m in the mindset for backups. I have stuff I’m working on that I don’t want to lose. And for me–in the middle of writing a really big, really convoluted novel–it would be lose. There’s no going back and starting over. Just forward.
I have a project–not writing–that I’ve been working on for a really long time. I’m trying to resurrect it from the pit of non-backupitude and make it function, again. I’m close. A little serious application of discipline and will power.
But I shoulda backed up in the beginning. Then, I wouldn’t have to have discipline or willpower. My stuff would just be there.
