last night i was working on this personal narrative/essay thing and finally had it just about finished around midnight. It was about 800 words or so and than my power went out. I hadnt saved a word of it.

Now im pretty sure its just gone. But does anyone out there know if theres any way to recover it. I was using microsoft works word processor 6.0.

sometime if you bring up word it'll show you the last document you were working on when the power was turned off. I've flipped a few times cuz i bumped the power switch. but word brought it bakc up when i rebooted, and i'd onyl lost a paragraph. maybe it was cuz i'd previously saved it though.

yeah i think you have to save it at least once, and than it does that.. im a ****ing retard and never even saved once though.. during a thunderstorm too, how god damn stupid. I punched myself in the head after it happened. ****ing hurt.

You don't have to have saved it for it to bring it back, but it doesnt always do it either.

so try and rewrite it , and make it even better. you might try and rewrite it, rethinking everything as you're going over it. it might actually help you in the end. and i said chill only cause **** like this happens. thers nothing you can really do about it, so lets just take the only route you have anyway and re-write.


hey it couldnt be any worse than when my older brother wrote a 28-page essay for some philosophy class where his essay was being published, and his hardrive crashed the morning he went to print it out.

You haven't been around lately... Sucks about the papers though. I've done that before.

Kind of lame but try typing it as a gmail email and it saves itself in drafts then when you finish it, you can copy/paste and print... Idea.
