A day of writing

Monday, November 16th., Rue de Calais, Paris.

Today I wrote the whole of my fourth Windsor story, "A Solution of the Algiers Mystery", 5,100 words. I have written as many words in a day before, but never a complete short story of that length. I began at 9.40 a.m. and finished at 12.40 a.m. with about four hours off for meals and sleep.


Additionally for November 16th., see 'First night adventurers' -

I said: "Is it all right?" He said: "Oh yes, it's all right." Dorothy said she had not played very well, but she was not depressed.
She said: "You and I are great adventurers."
