So I’m finalizing the book (thank You, God!) and stumbled across a good way to verify that those final little edits didn’t turn into big boo-boos.
My number-one rule for computers is
Save early, save often.
In case you didn’t know, “auto-save” too often results in “auto-lose.” I beg of you, please do not rely on your program’s auto-save “feature,” unless you really want to lose your work.
Most of us think that computers are just machines. I’m here to tell you, computers are organic. They’re alive. They can hear, and they can sense our moods.
If you are stressed, if you’re behind schedule, if you need your computer to do something right now, well, try to not say anything about it. Try to remain calm and cheerful. Because your computer knows when you’re agitated.
