Thousand beans in the pot; now I just have to stew them for a while, let them rot a bit and attract some flies.

Let 'em simmer. We have a little while.

Incidentally, inbetween everything else, I have managed to get my "better than nothing" section together. Now I have 2.5 hrs to turn it into a "better than awesome" one.

Or something.

Check, I'm on it.

Am in UK time, so off to bed now (sorry to rub it in your face, Pigfender), but I do look forward to seeing our creation tomorrow.

To all still writing, Zeus' speed. I hope you all get your work in on time.

Good night, all!

Twenty-six thousand words in a DAY?

Blimey. That's better than Simenon.

Over is fine, unless the words are rubbish.

We seem to be varying anywhere between 1000 and 3000
