I almost didn’t have a topic for today. How horrifying!

Today, I’m going to talk to you about keeping up with your work. I don’t mean it like you probably think I mean it — turning everything in on time. Don’t get me wrong, that’s important too, but I’m talking about knowing where it is. After all, how are you going to work on it if you don’t have a clue as to where you put it?

I know it can be hard to keep up with it, especially if you put it on a tiny flash drive like I have. After all, what would I do if my computer crashed and I didn’t have anything else it was put on? I would be heartbroken.

A lot of us put our manuscripts on a flash drive, I believe. It’s so much easier to keep up with that way, right? Wrong. I know where mine is a lot of the time, but I almost made one big mistake. I realized I didn’t know where my flash drive was once, and I started searching frantically for it. I remembered having put it in my pocket to easily carry earlier that day, and I ended up finding it in the laundry basket. Terrifying!

Don’t do what I did. Keep up with your work. Don’t make the mistake of losing your work. I know I’m going to be keeping a closer eye on mine from now on, and I hope you do, too. Most importantly, keep writing. I know you have what it takes.
