I picture you slaving away at a typewriter, overflowing waste basket next to you as you type and retype this sentence. You haven't slept a proper night in years. "No, no, NO!" you say, your head in your hands. "Why does this vex me so?"

You pace your study, pulling volumes off the shelf, Melville, Aristotle, Joyce, looking for that elusive inspiration that will bring your task to completion, but none comes.

Suddenly, September 1st of all days, you settle down in front of the typewriter, ready for another fruitless day staring at a blank sheet of paper, when finally, FINALLY the long-awaited for inspiration hits. Your fingers move as if by magic, spelling out the phrase, "Are you sure you aren't thinking of spoons?"

When the last punctuation mark is completed, you pull your trembling fingers back as your eyes well with tears. You gently pull the paper out of the typewriter, smiling. "I have done it," you whisper, a barely audible rasp. "That'll show that asshole Daehawk."
Brilliant! :lol:

You did all that in a day? :bow-yellow:

Interesting. I see it differently... on a day... 13 years ago...
Some real Miss Havisham vibes going on there.

I slaved away for HOURS. My palms were sweaty, vomit was on my sweater already, mom's spaghetti.
