Just figured out that if I run at 170 words every ten minutes (17 words per minute, or one word every three seconds, more or less), I’ll have my three thousand words (plus small change) done in three hours.

170 words per ten minutes is a very comfortable pace. If I’m really pushing, I can hit 300 words in ten minutes, and still have them be good words. I can’t do that steadily, though.

But 170 words every ten minutes? I can do that.
