Hemingway Never Did This

Rating: 3.0

I read that he lost a suitcase full of manuscripts on a

but the other night I wrote a 3-page poem
upon this computer
and through my lack of diligence and
practice
and by playing around with commands
on the menu
I somehow managed to erase the poem

forever.

It's very frustrating to lose work you have typed on a computer. Demoralizing. Hemingway's loss could have been even worse. He did not cope well with such things.
