A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 22
There was a time when I filled cupboards and shelves with my writing - pads filled with scribbles, folders overflowing with sheets of paper. Nowadays, the majority of my writing is stored on my laptop which is all fine and good if my laptop is healthy. My current laptop is quite new but in the past, laptops have died on me, to quite devastating effect. I learned my lesson though and I now have a memory stick or two, and our household has a couple of separate hard drives too (for all of our computers). I back up religiously, saving my latest writing as often as I write to ensure I never again have to suffer the loss of my creative workings.
Why not help your writerly friend to safeguard their own creations by buying them a memory stick or a separate hard drive. It could be a life saver.
