Mild panic today.

I'd done five pages of my new feature and I had to pop out for half an hour, so I left the file open. When I got home I found the computer had crashed...ARSE!!!!! Luckily I had done my last back up to CD-RW on Monday, but even better I'd set Final Draft to auto save.

I rebooted my computer and thank god it had auto saved, because I hadn't lost a thing. Fantastic!!!!

I know James Moran is religious about backing up his work, and I'm glad I do too.

The lesson? Save often, and don't forget to back up on to CD-RW every day. If you don't you'll regret it.
