Yesterdays took a while - I thought of the word while drifting off to sleep, and "fleshed it out" during the period between the cat jumping up and down on my bladder because he wants his breakfast and my getting up - so about an hour or so of "thinking time"

Todays was about ten minutes.

Same process: think of a word, break it up, twist it about, think about synonyms ... and then nail it all together and hack off the bits that don't work.

Tomorrows? Well, version one was about ten minutes, including some Google research to check validity.
Version two just flowed together and was complete in sixty seconds or so.

If you are interested, version one - now discarded - was "First letter of the alphabet". Want to try and solve it? Laugh | :laugh:
