A subtle reminder

writing Last year, 10 days into my NaNo novel, my computer crashed, and I lost a fair amount of work, because I forgot to make my backups for several days.

Whether you are participating in NaNoWriMo this year or not, remember to make a backup of your work regularly. I wrote some suggestions for backing up your documents here and here, and there are many other resources out there with great tips on backing up your work. Regardless of how you do it, be sure to do it regularly.

I too have blogged several times about the importance of backups. My heart breaks when I hear of people who lose the words they have poured their hearts and souls into!
