A young woman is hunched over her computer. She alternates between taking her headphones off and slipping them on. There’s an open Word document and she types fast, so fast that errors litter the page, a veritable written battleground. Squiggly red lines and littler green lines are everywhere.
She doesn’t pause to run corrections. Instead, she carries on typing, eyes flicking down to the word count. It keeps an eye on things for her; she gave up the habit several thousand words ago.
There’s a pause, a lull where she checks for prompts on social media and carries on, takes the prompt and runs as fast as she can.
It’s go time.
