This afternoon I have eaten 7 biscuits and written only 135 words. That gives me a WpB (Words per Biscuit) rate of 19.29, which I have to admit is pretty terrible. It means that in order to complete my book I'm going to have to eat about 3,11O biscuits in the next 4O days. That's 77.75 biscuits per day.
What can we learn from this? Perhaps that shortbread contains less literary merit than we thought.
