Well, it finally happened. My computer passed away. The hard drive, logic board, and battery all had to go bye-bye, which is effectively the equivalent (cost excluded) of replacing one’s computer.
But fear not! I had about 5 minutes before said doom struck to back up some of my most crucial files. My books.
Funnily enough, I’d never backed them up before that. (Praise THE HEAVENS that I had the chance to at all!) Can you imagine losing all of your story ideas, all of your plot outlines, all of your complete manuscripts? Pure nightmarish terror!
There is one thing, however, that I did not have a chance to save. Something I spent over 40 hours working on and was soon going to unveil.
The Final Advent‘s cover. And the video I’d put together detailing my process from beginning to end. I literally almost cried when I saw that I hadn’t backed either up. I’d spend nearly a month putting them together, and then poof, it was gone.
Now that my time of mourning has been observed and run its course, I’m back on the horse and have already began working on the cover yet again. (And yes, I’m ever working on edits, albeit slowly. Check my last post if you’re curious as to why.)
Have you ever had your computer die on you? If so, did it take any precious projects or pictures down with it? Comment below!
