Thus does not sound good. I am not sure there is too much you can do other than learn form the experence.

If you have actually deleted it then act as quickly as possible and try not to use the computer until you attempt a recovery with some sort of suitable utility. Do a web search for suitable software. (One I have heard of succes with is recuva )

I am not sure what exactly you did LibO Writer file menu does not include a delete option. Windows deletions unless you explicitly use a delete option often go to the Recycle bin.

( I have made the presumption you are using Windows - Mac s & Unix often have Trash icons not Recycle icons ) It is also worth searching the computer for the document in case you mis named it or put it in the wrong location.
If you need tips on howto search look at this and the advanced tips

A different subject, but maybe you should review your backup procedures. I guess you do not have any regular backup policy for your documents. If you knew it was going to be 12 hours work you could have used LibO file -> save copy option to make a backup every 1/2 hour or so. Another method would have been to set LibO to always make bacup copies, Tools -> Options -> Load/Save -> General [] Always create backup copy
