I know my latest serial is not as popular as my earlier ones, but there are about 500 readers per chapter. Today I drove an hour each way to the nearest Apple store to learn that the hard drive has died. I lost all my stories, but the only real loss was the next chapter, half written and two future stories.
I should have bought a replacement Mac at the Apple store while I was there, but as a pensioner I can’t call immediately to spend 2500 $C on the drop of the hat. So I have to decide if i want to spend another 2 hours driving tomorrow or buy online and wait for delivery. Either way there won’t be a chapter this week.
