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!

ooops! i miswrote. 2600 words. and believe me even with edits that number doesn't seem to be dwindling. sigh. oh, and btw, it's only been about 6 hrs for me. by the time i received my mission's assignment it was time for me to hit the sack. so i started this a.m.

Over is fine, unless the words are rubbish.

We seem to be varying anywhere between 1000 and 3000
