Save your work as a Freelance Writer

Are you the type of person who is paranoid about losing their work? Hopefully your answer is yes. As a freelance writer you should get into the habit of saving your work on a regular basis. If you don’t do this it will probably bite you in the neck sooner rather than later.

I got a wakeup call a couple weeks back. My part of the country was hit with a giant snow storm. In turn, the power was going out from time to time. Since I made it through the large part of the storm unaffected I figured there was nothing to worry about. But of course, I was wrong.

I was in the middle of writing a feature article, had yet to hit save, and the power blew. After a few minutes it came back on and I rebooted my computer. While I was glad that everything was safe with my machine, you guessed it – all of my work was gone. At that point my only option was to start the project over.

It is so silly to not save your work. It only takes a second to hit the save button, but for whatever reason many of us forget to do so from time to time. I learned my lesson a couple weeks ago, and am now trying to make a conscious effort to save my progress every few minutes. Has anything like this ever happened to you?
