Not Nano Day 6  
Estimate only today as I have been writing everything out longhand during the day and typing up at night*, and tonight and tomorrow night are totally out of the question with Sunday 50:50. So about five pages of notebook = about 1500 words, which is under the daily goal, but still on track for weekly.

MASSIVE storm rolled through the city today and everything is sticky in its wake. A poor young Japanese woman got on the bus utterly soaked and was enormously sorry when she dripped on me and I was just wishing that I had thought to pack a towel in my bag, so we had a brief polite-off before just grinning at each other and the ridiculous weather. I'm hoping the plants get enough water to see them through the dry that is likely to follow with this huge El Nino.

* I know this sounds mad, but I am catching the bus at the moment and it takes forever, so between two buses and lunch, that's a few hours writing a day that I can do with a pen. Then, when I type it, I can do the first round of edits. It's like going back to the 1980s and t's working surprisingly well!

Go you. Any progress is good progress. :)

You long hand people are a bit nattery. ;)

It;'s true, we are a weird breed, propelled only by the dream of one day imagining librarians pulling down crates of our notebbooks for researchers to look at and say 'What do you think this word is? Is it smudge or porridge? I have absolutely no idea. How is anyone meant to read this scrawl?!'
