Okay. I admit it.
I don’t mess up files very often, because I usually follow my process.
Only … this time, I didn’t.
Translated: “It was [almost literally] crying jag time.”
[QW19] (Save early) + (Save often) = No regrets
- Give each ‘save’ a different name (key the date and time in the filename).
- Print new sections after writing them (just need to rekey, not rethink).
You see where I’m going with this
Save early, save often.
Give each saved file a slightly different file name.
(When you’re finished, delete the extras.)
Print new sections as you go. Rekey instead of rethink.
