Re: Back up...

I keep copies of the sci-fi story I'm working on in Scrivener on Dropbox, along with backups to my local drive, and to a thumb drive.

If you ever doubt the quality of your own writing, flip open 50 Shades to a random page, read for a while, and remember that the E L James made millions of dollars off of that wri...
