Tech Tips for Writers is an occasional post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.

Q:My internet stopped for no reason. I’m in the middle of something important. What can I do?

The same applies to a printer that stops for no known reason–turn it off, wait ten seconds and turn it back on.
