You never see it coming! One day, it’s heathy. Exploring the world of the internet and typing away like it doesn’t have a care in the world. Then, one day, the dreaded black screen! I woke up and decided to check my e-mail. However, when I booted up my laptop it hardly got pass the boot up screen before turning pitch black. I tried to reboot, but nothing helped. All that was left was a black screen.
I called Mum to the scene in hopes that her computer knowledge could save the day. That I might once again get to use my computer at least one last time to gather data that was stored in the hard drive. She tried everything she knows for computer CPR, but it was too late. With no system backup disk, it was gone. Time of death, 9:00 am.
Fortunately, all important documents, including my novels and WIPs have been backup onto a jump drive as of Friday. However, I lost three months of picture (including Easter and Old Salem – but not Christmas, thank goodness) and all the new manuscript playlists I had created just a week ago.
*slams head to desk*
And what lesson have we learned, Ms. Kelsey Ketch: Always. Always. Always! Backup your system and files!
Now, I have to head out and buy a new computer, but I’m grateful that my friend, Sophi, let me borrow her computer this morning so I may write this blog!
