I've only done 1024 words so far today, and it's killing me. As mentioned before, I'm working on a previously started novel that I'm already 10,000 words into. Or 11,000 now (yay!)
This is a snippet from some stuff I wrote earlier. No prizes for guessing what publications it refers to:
"Nick wrote for the Gulf Gazette, a newspaper whose main distinction was being marginally less ill-written and slightly less uninteresting than its bitter rival, the stalwart Trucial States Tribune. The Tribune, as famed for its illiteracy as its misplaced grandiloquence, regarded itself as the elder statesman of the UAE press, but was viewed by its younger, brasher tabloid cousin as a senile old fool."
