Why are you reading this? Shouldn’t you be in bed? If not than maybe at work. At the very least you should be writing, writers write you’ve heard that before.

Maybe you’re taking a break, looking for inspiration, won’t find it here.

All you’ll find here is a piece of a puzzle. Answer the question and use that answer to figure out the next piece, so on and so forth.

At any point if the puzzle becomes too difficult to solve please by all means stop and work on something else.

(This is for entertainment purposes only…or is it?)

What number is it?
The number of islands in the Hawaiian island chain minus the 26th prime number.
