I was writing earlier today, and doing very well. I was 'in the zone', writing great, everything going well, writer's high, 40+ words per minute, everything seemed perfect. And then everything decided to go horribly wrong. A badly timed update page, a mistyped enter key later, and the computer was restarting for updates. I lost 20+ pages of really good content and now am trying to figure out what to do.
Normally, I would just move onto another chapter or another story and write that and come back later, but I don't want to do that because I want to lose as little as I can from the original writing. I know that if I try to rewrite it it will end up worse than the original when I try to just rush through it, so that's not going to work all that well. I could try and just ignore the mistakes and stuff and just rewrite, then do a round of editing in a few days to fix it up, but I still feel like I wouldn't get everything as good as I want it.
So question; I just lost 20+ pages of good content and want to rewrite it with a minimal decrease in quality and preferably quickly. How?
