After a wonderful weekend spent editing. I can to open my file today and realised in horror… I’ve been editing the wrong one 😦

I have had a much earlier file open and I’ve left it open, day in, day out.


I can only hope that I haven’t strayed from my goal ‘the first three chapters’ and that its easily fixed. Or, I might have to just start all over again.

I am more than gutted.

Tip to all writers. Make sure you’re in the correct file….

    • It has been ‘several years,’ since I’ve made a colossal mistake like that. 😦 I would hope never again, but it does happen…

  1. I did that a while back. It wasn’t even mine – I was editing someone else’s work! Eek! It was a Dropbox-sync issue. Some painful cross-cutting got things back in order, but it’s certainly a pain.
