I was trying to make a 1,000-worded post some minutes ago, but I lost it when my laptop notified that it need to be restarted!
Thinking that what I had written, almost 800 words post, will still be there when the process finished, I did not transfer it to my MWord on a separate file. It was about “decluttering” project at home. Now I got so tired thinking about words I had written a few minutes ago! Maybe next time when my mind was refreshed, I will write it again and be sure to submit first before choosing to run such “restart” program on this computer!
It was my mistake! How I should had saved it first before running the program! I did it thinking it won’t be lost, and I needed to run it because last night, my computer screen turned black saying it has low memory. Thinking that it needed more available space, I deleted some files, some photos etc. to ease the memory. Then I removed the battery for some minutes, and it worked!
I thought it might be so hot, so I put an electric fan focused on it to make it cool, added to the cooling pad that I had been using for so long.
Do you have such an experience? Do you immediately rewrite what you remembered you wrote on that blog? For me, I felt so tired to think over again. I do not have the habit of writing first on a separate folder or on a word document before copy-pasting it here on Literacybase. I directly write here, thinking that there will be no problems!
As they say, experience is the best teacher! So that experience would tell me to save first on Word document if ever I wanted to write longer posts; just to be sure it will not be erased. It is hard to think again what you had written because sometimes there are factors that affect the way you had put words in there. It can be so beautiful, and because you were so sorry for what had happened, you tend to forget what words/sentences you had written.
