One other word on Michael Moorcock…

I also ran across this quote from Michael Moorcock on Wikipedia…
“I could write 15,000 words a day and gave myself three days a volume. That’s how, for instance, the Hawkmoon books were written.”
15,000 words is about the length of my own book, Qwikpick. Obviously I didn’t write it in a day. Nor was the forth-coming Civil War Extravaganza written in 2 1/2 days, despite having a co-author.
Hawkmoon, as it happens, is one of my favorite Moorcock series. Amazing that he wrote it perhaps even faster than I read it.
