Just yesterday I was able to finish writing a post reviewing some products. Took all day long to research the information, choosing just the right wording, planning how to write as there were some statistics on the various products that are not published.
Finally finished it all up at 11pm and went for the publishing phase. Spell check, all ok, original content, all ok. Publish! Went to check on the post and lo and behold, everything was a total mess. I had saved my work often and now, half was missing, and of the other half, in places where I never put them. Checked the backup of my post and it too was a total wreck.
Not sure what happened, but I will tell you that everything was then deleted by me. So disgusting, all that hard work.
Fret not as I have taken a long walk around the river banks to clear my head and try to lift my spirits. This morning, another decision was made to re-write the entire post. Since I have the original notes, its just another couple of hours work. My point here is that just as devastating the feeling I got from that experience, I am not willing to give up. Same with WA! If you give up too early before you can see results, you will have wasted a lot of time and energy.
Like the old saying goes, "if at first you don't succeed, re-write it" (adapted for the WA thing).
