I think I mentioned yesterday that I was happy to have time set aside to push through the rest of my revisions. Guess what? Last night I began reading through my entire revised manuscript, only to discover that some of my changes were GONE. Hmmm, not sure how that happened. I’m a fiend about constantly saving my work as I go along. As far as I can tell I’m missing about two days worth of changes. I was freaking out last night because I worked really hard on two of the chapters impacted and I had been thrilled with the results (which NEVER happens with me). Later today I’m going to search one more time (in vain) before I try to recreate what is missing. This is why everyone warns you to back up your work on a thumb drive.
