Here it is five years from when I started trying a novel. 10 years since I started to write a different version of the same novel.
And what have I done? I have 4 different novels that I started. The one with the most work put in has about 30,000 words written which is maybe half maybe less, of what it should be.
I recently completed my 31st full length play. There have been 4 pilots, 3 full length films and a web series as well. Oh, and I wrote for that show for 5 months. (something like 5 episodes.)
So I haven't been doing nothing, but man, I wish I could finish a novel. Back to work.
