Back up your work!

A friend in Portland, Oregon sent me this sad story about a writer who lost all of her work when her car was broken into:

She’s offering a good cash reward for the return of her work, so let’s hope that she sees it again.

I back-up my work in half-a-dozen places, including Google Drive Рa free cloud storage service. Many writers have lost their manuscripts Рwhich qualifies as the ultimate rewrite, I guess.
