Having my hard drive wiped of everything I had ever typed today really made me think of this. Sure, the tangible stories are gone, yet the non-tangible is still in my head, which is inspiring me to get back to writing them. I dunno, this just came to mind when I heard it (and cried for hours on end.) .
I'm sorry to hear your hard drive was wiped. I had some stories that were on a external and the external dropped and everything I had on there was gone. It upset me but I'm still writing better stories. I know it can keep us writers down but I know we'll push through. I'm glad you were able to think of this stamp.
