You're allowed to round up and call it six.  Six words a minute is better than no words at all ;-) 
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

 ;D Yupper, okay 6 it is. Now you see why it take me so long per chapter. I started out around 3 words a minute so I've almost doubled that. But this also includes pondering and lots of spell-check corrections. I envy those that can type as fast as they think.

It sounds like you are writing in first person perspective.  If so, the hang up may be living/reliving the pain.  Maybe it would help to write it, in a separate document, in second person perspective, in great detail; let it sit for a couple of days, and they tweak it for first person.  I hope this helps.  BTW, sounds like an excellent story!

No the trouble was I wasn't writing anything ... at all.  Nothing in F-P or T-P there was nothing for 23 days.
