Writing On The Go — 1 Comment

  1. There is a hilarious story attached to this post. More specifically, to the picture in this post. Go ahead, take another look at it. Click/tap on it to see if it will enlarge (it may not). I’ll wait.

    That photo was snapped on a spur-of-the-moment, “omg I just lost the ability to word” kind of thing during our work outing today. I snapped it with my phone, emailed it to my tablet (pictured there on the table), then tapped out of the document to edit the pic, write the blog post, copy it to Twitter – all the usual jazz. I did not realize until I tapped back into TexPert that I hadn’t saved the work I’d just done, and I’d lost every bit of it.

    You might have heard the howls of anguish at about 3pm PST.

    Well, that was it for the day. Yes, I know. This is not hilarious. Bear with me for a minute.

    Michael and I ran a couple of hours’ worth of errands and were on our way back home at last when I remembered *that the text on the screen at the moment I’d taken that picture was very probably most of the work I’d lost.*

    I snatched my phone out of my pocket and pulled up the Gallery and whaddyaknow. There it was. Is. If you got that pic to enlarge (I honestly don’t know if it does or not), you can read it for yourself. I just insist that, if you do, that you remember it’s a first run-through of fresh text inserted into a second draft and DON’T JUDGE ME. (lol)

    I truly did laugh right the feck out loud. M was exhausted and I couldn’t get him to engage on the joke, but my sh*t was pretty much cracked up for most of the last couple of miles to the house.

    God, I love tech. I love playing jokes on my dumb ass with tech.

    Got a similar story? It’s your turn to share. 🙂
