Just as I’m launching my new blog and gearing up to release my novel, water intervenes.
A glass of water.
That I spilled.
On my keyboard.
I tried everything to get my laptop to work again, including one site’s recommendation to prop my laptop upside down on a pillowcase, on a milk crate, in front of a fan, for 92 hours.
I also went to the Genius Bar at the Mac Store. My genius shrugged.
Luckily, the blog and the book still exist, but my water-logged Mac is now a doorstop.
I take this as a challenge.
Hopefully, your writing week goes better. Kiss your fully-functional keyboard and please, back it up, back it all up. It’s the best advice I can give.
Anyone else rebound from a similarly ridiculous mistake?
