Oh my god, I thought it was just a myth but it happened to me! The manuscript for my second book has been corrupted due to file type errors. The effort that I put in the whole of last year all gone….
or it would have, had I not gotten a random tip off a couple of weeks ago to back it up in my email. I still lost a couple of chapters and a few thousand words but that is better than losing all of it. I feel as if I have dodged a bullet.
I couldn’t have put this project in the ground thinking that I will write something else because this was the second book in my series, so I would have had to write it again no matter how bad it felt.
So all the authors out there, if you haven’t backed up your manuscript in a while then back it up right now.
