we now return you to your regular lunacy programming

The blasted short story wants to be written longhand. And it wants to be written a hundred words at a time.

Have explained to story that time is pressing and a hundred words a day will not cut it. Story remains unmoved. Have threatened story with never being written, but story is unfazed. You've written the ending, it points out. As if it's content with only the ending!

Must find way to convince story it does not have the upper hand.

Am not optimistic.
