Is there a way to save unfinished project posts and blogs into a draft, then return to finish them at a different time ?

Yesterday, I posted a new project and a blog. As I was uploading photos and gathering my thoughts on what to type, it would have been nice to stop and return to complete them later on.

no there isn’t.

but if you suspect you’ll have a long post and don’t want to risk losing it midway – you could write it in an external text editor, and when ready to “POST” just copy paste it here.

PurpLev...I may do that next time…that’s a good idea. Sometimes I’ll write something down and read it again later it either doesn’t read as how I would like or I may have left something out…Saving it in an external text editor would give me the chance to proof read it first…. thanks for the tip

sometimes a draft will stay for a long time – days?? (I have found) but usually you just get a short window. So the off-site draft is the best way to do it.
