Writing at my own speed – Sarah Waters Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)
I hate the idea of being paid for a book before I’ve written it, I’d rather be writing it at my own speed. I am quite disciplined as a writer as well. It may take a year or two longer than I expect at the start, but that’s just how it goes. I’m into the third year of writing my new book at the moment, and I think it’s probably going to need another year. You just have to give them as long as they need.

This is so ‘timely’. Earlier this month Sarah Waters was a keynote speaker at the Brisbane Writers Festival down here in Australia. I’ll admit that when she specifies 3-4 years for witing her next novel, my mind ventures into number-crunching hyperdrive and attempts to speculatively break that chunk of time down into portions for each phase of the writing process (ie. research – outlining – 1st draft – 2nd draft etc.)
