A Sneeze Killed My MacBook

March 11, 2013

3:44am, Saturday the 9th of March.

Being an old lady, I get up when I want to and nap when I feel like it. So being up that early in the morning was nothing new. I sat down to being an edit on a novel a client and I had been working on.

I’d just taken a drink of soda when a huge sneeze came on me. I spewed everything over my laptop. Moments later as I was wiping things up the damn thing died.

The last time I’d done a thorough back up had been December of last year.  Yep.







I killed my MacBook with a sneeze.

Which is why there’s no blog post on writing today, nor will there be until I can salvage my hard drive and get at the five posts I’d already written for the coming months.

Wish me luck.

    Ugh, sorry to hear. Gesundheit?

  2. Terrible. That used to be a common occurrence for me (not the sneeze, but the loss of a hard drive). May I suggest dropbox or some other ‘cloud’ drive to save your stuff on in the future?

    Good luck! Hope you get it all back!

    I hope it all works out for you and you can salvage everything. I hate it when computers go kaput. I blew mine up. Lost loads of work, then borrowed my mums and that blew out too… Good job I am always so paranoid about my stuff. Only now and then do I do stupid things and lose a bit of work. Still sucks though.

    Hope to see you back soon.

  5. Ouch. Fingers crossed.
