Have You Seen My Dunce-Cap?

Ah, here it is. I'm placing it on my pointed head where it belongs. You see, I am a dunce. Why, you ask? Because I seem to have lost all of my written work from my last, may-it-rest-in-peace computer. All my own fault. Not the computer dying, just the losing of my stuff. Of course, if I'd been a non-dunce, like the rest of the PC-literate world, I would have saved my stories on a memory stick. Oh, I had saved one of them. I'd started out with good intentions and all, but got lazy. And well, duncey. I hadn't bothered to save the rest. So when my PC took a dive, I was not prepared. I learned an expensive, irritating lesson: If you don't save your stories, you may end up one day rewriting them. And on top of that, you have to wear the ugly dunce cap! And believe me, it's not very fashionable.

Oh, that's terrible. I once saved my writings somewhere on the Internet. But I don't remember where! So I saved again some writings on my blog; I pasted them on an unsent message. It works for me...
Have a nice weekend!
