The Manuscript Writing Cafe is a unique shop in Tokyo set aside exclusively for writers facing deadlines.
When they enter, customers report a writing goal to the manager. Specifically, they have to state a number of words that must be completed. There's a consequence for failing to finish the goal: they don't get to leave.
After paying an entrance fee, the writers can order coffee with unlimited refills. The cafe has WiFi and each writing station has a USB charger and a PC cooling stand.
About every hour, the manager stops by each writer and asks if they're making progress. The customer chooses whether the manager asks that question in a "mild", "normal", or "hard" manner.
"Hard" is, presumably, a vigorous application of the query.
