Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Several things you can try:

Word preferences: Under Save. Place a check in the box that states "Always make a backup". Also set the Auto Recovery for a short interval.

Next go to file locations. Set the location for Auto Recovery and backup to your documents folder so they'll be easy to find when you boot back up from a crash.

You won't be able to recover every change but you should get the majority of them from the backup copy. The Auto Recovery copy may or may not be useable but worth a try anyway.
