What do you mean you can't save my document?

My bad-luck streak with technology still continues...alas. Last night I had the sudden urge to start editing again. So I started making changes to my document and saving changes as I go along...until Microsoft Word stopped saving my document, saying that the program is non-responsive. Of course at this point I had swallowed my last breath as I realized that all my changes might not have been saved. But that was the least of my worries. When I finally had the courage to enable task manager and the unresponsive program is closed, I went back to check on my document, only to find that it was removed.

At this point people I wanted to start crying. I have had a lot of computer problems and I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I knew how to fix them. So now I have to uninstall my Microsoft Office package and re-install it. Of course when I mean me, I mean my brother. Hopefully it will be sorted out soon. Luckily I had a back-up of my work, but still...losing your work is never a nice feeling. I understand why certain writers still prefer typewriters. At this point I think my computer hates me.

How is your writing going?
