I wrote 500 words of The Tower today, even though it didn't flow as usual. I have hit the 6,000 word mark and expect it to be at least 7,000 words.
Our car broke down. My wife found it with only 1 mile of petrol in it. I tried to blame her (I had only used it to pick her up from work.) Good job it did though because we found something that needs fixing. A fortunate mishap? that sounds like when you lose your Kindle and find the house keys you had been looking for for a month (then find your Kindle the next day!)
