Transcribed my handwritten scrawl from earlier in the week to pristine wordprocessed text today. In actuality as often happens when I type up hand written work I also completely rewrote it in the process. Todays wordcout – 1545. Not too shabby and they aren’t bad words either. I haven’t had a week were I made my wordcount yet by simply typing the word ‘Haddock’ two thousand five hundred times. Maybe I’m keeping that in reserve for when the hard times come
