Today I was trying to get a sample out to some of my fellow writing friends. It involved a lot of cutting and pasting and I pasted one last thing and it'd be ready to email.

And then it happened. Somehow I didn't paste part of my story but a section of some fiction that isn't even mine.

Eighteen pages of some fiction that isn't even mine.

That erased the entire rest of my sample.

Thankfully a few years back I remember someone telling me about Control-Z, which basically undoes the last thing you typed. I make a lot of mistakes typing but I've never done something so radically erroneous that I needed it.

It worked.

Glad I was paying attention that day.
