Well, this sucks

So, last night, after I posted my latest story, I saved that file, and that was fine. And I was off to bed, so I went to save the other three story files and I had open, and they wouldn't save because it said the flash drive was corrupted or some such thing, which had apparently happened in the literal five seconds between saving one file and trying to save another. So, I saved those three files to another drive, and took the flash drive out to see if reloading it helped.

And now my flash drive is a mess and I can't access any of my stories. And I don't have them backed up, because I keep them on the flash drive so they are safe, ironically.

Good news: three of the active stories I was working on are safe.
Bad news: literally everything else is possibly gone.
Good news: let's be honest, the majority of those stories were fragments that I wouldn't finish anyway.
Bad news: I lost a few stories that I'm really bummed out about, and a lot of character development stuff.
Good news: I have a pretty good memory to help me put them back together.
Bad news: Oh, dear God, why?!

So, I haven't quite given up hope yet, and I'm trying to find a solution, or even somewhere professional to take it, and either way, it's not the end of the world.

But...fuck this shit.
