28015 ★ 50000

I wonder what it's like to be on the right side of the nano pacing line? (The right side in judgment terms. If you're ahead of pace you're actually above the diagonal pacing line, which means visually it looks like you're to the left of it.)

Anyway! I know "maths" is legitimately something people say in countries that are not in North America, but whenever I see it I think of "many maths" the way one might say "many sheeps."

So! I have now writ 28,015 words.

This means I have 21,985 left to write in the next 5 days (+ however many minutes left between now and bedtime, but let's say 5 days as the nearest day-integer).

That's 4,397/day! Which is slightly less than 5,000 per day and slightly greater than HOLY CRAP, THAT'S A LOT OF WORDS.

However, if you were to break that down strictly by number of calendar hours (assuming 24 hours per day), that would be 183.20 words per hour, or 3.05 words per minute - which is such a low number of words per minute that if you were to set that as your goal in Mario Teaches Typing, Mario would flat out refuse to get on the floating stone if it was really going to cross the field of lava at such a ridiculously slow pace. This doesn't allow for sleeping and working and eating and driving/walking/texting/breathing, but in a pure hard world of plural math this is completely possible.

I mean, I could absolutely think of 3.05 words a minute even while sleeping, I think, and then I would just have to type them in. And as a transcriptionist, I clocked in at over 100 words per minute.

According to maths, I've already won!
