Lost My Text!

I was working on the first chapter of my storygame and I hit "save" and it gave me a message: You Broke it. Now I can't find what I've written!

That sucks but consider it a lesson learned: if you're writing anything anywhere online and it's something you care about you want to keep a back up. Glitches with a site or server, connection issues etc will happen at the worst times, and if you forget your password or otherwise lose access you're similarly screwed.

Most of us a writing program and paste things over to the site. (Having to arrange and connect a billion little boxes as you go isn't the smoothest writing experience anyhow...)

Dropbox or Google docs an additional safety net is not a bad idea either.

Okay, well thank you for the advice. I think I should try the Classic instead of the Advanced because the pop-up blockers on this computer (it's not mind, but a friend's) might have caused some of my grief.

Using your browser's 'back' button also sometimes helps. Though that's of course a bit too late now.
