Of Stephen Fry writing about writing.

And now I must go and be about some of the same. I have set myself the target of 15,000 words a day (These are rewrites, I need to add! Not actual writing, for which 15,000 words a day would be an insane target!) to complete this bloody thing in a week.

I am turning teh internets off. I am sitting down at my laptop with my serious intent face on. I may be gone some time.

Phew! You had me cringing. A good day of writing for me is 1,000 words; I just could even wrap my mind around 15,000.

Good luck with the editing.

Ha. Oh... no. Nonono. I haven't even hit my rewrite target today, managed about 9,500. I'm planning to carry on later though, while I half-watch Beatles Night on BBC2. :o)

I usually manage about 3,000 but that's just writing and doing nothing else.
