Tales from the Sofa

Yesterday, for reasons I won't go into, saw me at work from 8 am to nearly 6, with a snatched 15 minute break.

The story doesn't have to be perfect, the story has to be finished.

The theory is that if I keep on writing 200 words every day, and editing them for half an hour on the next day before writing another 200 words, this looking-to-be 25,000 word story will eventually get finished.

Except that most days the best I can manage is well below 100 words.
