I lost a laptop in 2012 in Superstorm Sandy. It was on the kitchen desk and the flood waters rose over our kitchen counters. I had 10,000 (unbacked up) words of my first novel on it. My husband sent it across the country to the best data retrieval place, but it was destroyed. I still haven’t sat down to try again. You are right, words and thoughts are gems. Protect them.

I’m Emme, like the letter. Find me at www.emmebeckett.com or email at emmebeckett@gmail.com
