The worst feeling in the world for a writer is when something gets deleted.

It’s 3 am here, and I spent two hours finishing the rough draft of a 5 chapter ebook. I spent an hour trying to recover the ebook.

But, now, I only have three chapters.

Albeit, it was a 7-page ebook for this draft. I have all the graphics saved, and I know the content by heart. But, it’s so disheartening for two chapters, a conclusion, and a worksheet to disappear.

I did save the document repeatedly, and there are previous versions in the history. Just none after midnight.
