Last night I was writing my Summer of Giles story, and had a really good flow going. I was about 3 pages into it and decided I needed to look something up.

Aparently, I didn't minimize the screen, I closed it. It didn't give me any warning. When I tried to go back, the story was gone. Zip.

I have auto-save on my Word, but it hadn't saved with that either.


I remember the outline of what I had done, but not the specifics. I was so upset I hardly slept last night. So right now I'm at work, fighting to stay awake and unable to concetrate on what I should be doing.

Why can't I win the lottery so I can stay home and write? Even though I'm doing a job that I like now, I resent coming to work and leaving my writing. Does anyone else feel like this, or am I weird?

Nope, not weird. I would love to win the lottery or have Publisher's Clearing house arrive at my doorstep. It would be lovely to stay home all day and just write fanfic and not have to worry about money. Alas, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

Nope, no more weird than usual.
Mary Janice Davidson kept saying that night don't give on writing. Keep plugging away and sending in stories. Artist must suffer for their art.(lol)
In school they kept telling me that one should click save every "5" min.

Forgot to say. I got the Watchers Guide book. In it they interview them and Tony play Jesus in Godspell in England. I thought wow, Godspell. I like him even more for that then Rocky Horror.
