How do you save your work? My novel is now up to 18k, after a very good day of writing yesterday. I am now to the point where I am paranoid about it somehow getting deleted. I have it on a thumb drive, and I have considered emailing it to myself, and putting it on a CD as well. I think I may just be getting a little paranoid. lol. How do you save yours?

I save mine on the hard drive of my laptop. We also have an external hard drive that wasn't very expensive that backs up all of our files. My short story collection I emailed some of the longer pieces to myself. I have printed all of the completed stories for a hard copy. I plan to make a CD as well.
