Total number of words added today: 2,458.

I have to make a confession... that word count is cheating a little bit.  A lot of the words have been copied and pasted from an interview, so they were already written by my interviewees.  Still, I have actually been writing my words to go along with it.  Those 2,458 words represent, by my estimation, about a quarter of the interview.  Sound good to you?

It was a bit of a weird day... I was back to work today for the first time since the Christmas break, so I didn't think I would get much work done on the book.  Then I remembered I was on public transport... an hour of free wifi in each direction would be handy.  However, I didn't feel in the mood on the way into work, and on the way back my phone's battery died.  That was annoying... the buses on my route have power sockets but unfortunately (and, sadly, as usual) they weren't working on my bus.  I'd forgotten to bring along my little Chromecast computer, so that idea was scuppered!

Not to worry, it turned out that I could be productive at home.  I'm happy with that!
