This is a tribute.

Post  tara on Thu Feb 05, 2009 10:52 am

I wrote a beautiful, life-altering post for the Blue Room. It talked about my past, my present, my future. It was insightful and soul-searching. It was really, really long. And then just as I was about to post it ... my computer ... ate it. Ironic since my last lines were "It's okay if no one reads it, because I feel better just writing it" which of course was false modesty because who would not want to read such a bounteous, heartfelt address?

You would have printed it out and hung it. You would have quoted it to your friends. And now ... it is floating in the space ... that space where all lost emails and forum posts and LJ entries go ...

This topic is a tribute to the fallen. *soft and sad jazz hands*

it didnt actually sound anything like this post.
This is just a tribute, you gotta believe me, I wish you were there just a matter of opinion.

No seriously that is sad, I have had that happen one too many times myself, so all long posts are now done in word on my end.
If you feel up for it then write it anew, but give yourself some time, if you try to recreate it it will just fuck up. Just create the post anew when the time is right

Sadly, though computers are so useful, they do sometimes backfire. No *mumbles something about good old-fashioned pen and paper*

It sounds like a great post. I'd love to read it if, in time, you do ever re-write it.

I had to laugh when i read this because that's happened to me too. I think about everything as I write it and sometimes without meaning to I take too long and it times me out! Sorry about your beautiful post. Now i will always be curious. Crying or Very sad

I wrote a 10 page report the other day and forgot to save till I was at the conclusion, if it had fucked up there I would have been screwed.
