World's Strongest Writer Marathon Update

               I passed the 15k word mark. I'm working on the 17.5k mark today to keep up with where I want to be during the marathon, but I did manage to catch up.
               Terror starts her new job today in the deli at King Kullen, a local grocery chain. She is going to work in the deli and she is terrified that she will lob off her hand. She says the sign is very encouraging, they have a sign with changing numbers. Yesterday it read "We have gone 20 days without an accident!" (the longest they have managed it is 100 days).
               Personally, I think waiting for an accident is happen is almost ensuring that it will happen, but that's my problem lol.
               I watched - I think the title was Infection, it was a Japanese horror film about a plague at a hospital, an isolated incident. I do not want to give a spoiler because I think it would be a good film for people to watch, with all the little twists and turns. Do not wait for a "remake" (they will ruin the story, unless perhaps the original director can find a way to carry it across to us gaijin) but IMO the imagery works very well within the context of the story.
