In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Powerful Suggestion.”
The one thing I wish I had heard a year or two or three ago is this: “Listen when I tell you to back up your work in multiple places.”
I don’t usually do Dailey Prompts, but when going through my email because I was tired of fretting over that thumb drive this one jumped out at me.
Yes, I should hear that once and only once and listen, but I didn’t. I always thought there would be time. The time has run out and I may have lost my whole book. I was almost finished editing! You can read about it here if you want to know more details.
I now know how John-Boy felt on ‘The Waltons’ when he lost his manuscript in a fire. That episode always stuck with me for some reason.
When you hear those words – “Back up your work in multiple places” – do just that. Immediately! Do! Not! Procrastinate!
Just a little piece of advice you should listen to. 😦
DO AS I SAY – NOT AS I DO
