The novel

Well its nearly four months and I’ve written about 4 pages. I saw a quote from Julia Cameron today ‘I wrote 40 books one page at a time’ I think the inference is that she wrote one page a day which is 365 pages a year. Assuming most books are about 200 pages long then its taken her 20 years to write those books. If I continue at my current rate then in 16 years time I will have my first novel ready for publication. So, either I increase my pace or I come to terms with the fact that my first manuscript will be ready when I’m 74.
