The Daily Word Count of Famous Writers

And now we know why they are famous.

We also know that Michael Crichton was not human.

By the bye, if you are an author, do not compare yourself to these people. That is an exercise in total futility. What you do is what you do. What we learn from this is that writing is best as a daily habit whether we are doing 100 words a day or more or, if life has its challenges, 100 words a week.

It's all BOCHOK: Backside On Chair, Hands On Keyboard.

  1. This reminds me of what I read about pulp authors like Norvell Page and Robert J. Hogan, who very often did at least a 50,000 word novel every month, AND would very often crank out a few novellas and short stories after the novel; they tended to average 75,000-100,000 words PER MONTH for over a decade.
