As a writer currently slogging through her second round of editing, the light at the end of the tunnel looks farther away than ever before. I guess everyone starts to flag at the end of the race, but I can’t help but wonder: am I taking too long? How to other authors do it?
Go to Fantastic Fiction, search for a popular modern author, and take a look at their publication dates. Nora Roberts, Janet Evanovich, Debbie Macomber, Fern Michaels, John Sandford, David Baldacci, James Patterson + Another Random Author… all of them release at least one book a year. Some release two or more! And I end up sitting there, jaw on the floor, asking, “HOW?!”
