Well, Damn

Sometimes I hate Live Journal.

I've been working all day on a new post, a long long long look back on the year that is ending, and all the things that happened in it, the good and the bad.

I know, I know. I should have broken it up. Made it three posts, or four.

But I didn't, and somehow I lost it.

No problem, I figured. LJ has a "restore previous draft" function.

Sadly, however, when I use it, I get a short two paragraph post that I started last night and then abandoned, after deciding I didn't want to post about that after all.

Today's post, the long long long long one (and it wasn't finished), seems to have vanished into the ether, and I can't get it back.

Nor do I have the energy (or time) to recreate it.

Hell of a way to end the year.

Sorry.

Re: Lost chapters
I often wonder what your system looks like you write your hugely popular various book series on. The old WordStar system. I find this concept hugely amusing in a very positive way, shunning the glitch/crap fest that is Windows based writing programs.

Hell, another of my favorite authors, the now departed Shelby Foote, who wrote great volumes on the American Civil War, wrote every single thing he every wrote, by hand, on fine paper, with a fine pen. That I absolutely cannot wrap my brain around, considering how huge just his CW book series is.

The ultimate shunning of tech - pen/paper.

George, I assume your WordStar PC is isolated from the internet as well - added security measure? You must have had cyber sleuths try and get early access to material before.
