Some authors can whiz through their manuscripts, completing tomes of 60 to 80K in a matter of weeks.
Others can do 90K+ in a matter of months, while others stay stuck on page one, or buried in middle
chapters, or waded down in the morass of a draft that one’s agonized soul believes should have been
completed by now.
Stop the Guilt.
Authors should work guilt free. With the proper tools and techniques, anyone can master any draft. The
