They're rolling in Yaay. I have a story, only began today and  not quite there yet. Enjoying every minute.
@Nora you were right, I won't earn your respect, the location from first click was fine, but I couldn't cope with all those names. ::)
Did a second click and this is what appeared  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KSNR   ;D

Well, I managed to get something done. Basically had a short little idea and stuck a few hundred words either side, but hey ho. Definitely one of the harder topics.

Now I just have to read the others. :)

Still sitting at ~160 words. Don't feel like doing anything today and tomorrow the Eurocup is back. And even if June had 31 days, the day after would also have Eurocup.
Slow and steady wins the race.

I overshot (by about 200 words). And I feel like I'm making an unexciting/bad story even worse by cutting it.  :(
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.
