Got my laptop back. Lost everything.

Some good news, though!

1) My laptop is now working as good as new (yay!).

2) I have one of my long stories backed up slightly - five chapters are in an email I sent to a beta, and I never deleted that (double yay!).

But yes, seems I have a lot of writing to catch up on...

In other news, though: Doctor Who tonight! Oh, yes!

I am taking this much better than I thought I would. Maybe it hasn't sunk in yet. Hope it never does, really.

Okay, so my laptop's hard drive has died. Literally.

Two days ago I was on it, making something in my Photoshop Elements 10, then suddenly the thing freezes on me and turns off. I turn it back on and get the message 'A disk read error occurred'.


So, I've sent it in to be repaired, but I might have lost all my files. That I haven't backed-up. Because I'm an idiot.

That's over 60,000 words worth of various WIP fanfictions I might have lost, including two fills for prompts I'd taken up, a fic I needed to finish for someone who'd requested it on a comm, plus the Big Bang rough draft I was supposed to send in by - you guessed it - today.

I might have also lost some photos, but luckily most of them are on other computers in the house. Also might have lost pretty much every WIP fanvideo and fanart piece I've been working on in the past year, too.

Yes, I had a big old cry about it when I first got the message. I get upset when my laptop plays up, and I sobbed big time. Now, I'm kind of content with it, but when I get it back (and if I have lost all my files), I don't know if I'll be this calm.

Only time will tell.

At least this will urge me to back up everything in the future, though.

How it works for you (if you wish to participate):

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.
