For most of us it takes a considerable amount of time to write our novels, but Anthony Burgess took just 3 weeks to write A Clockwork Orange. Sure, NaNoWriMo writers may generate a “novel” in the 4 weeks of November, but I’m thinking they aren’t of that caliber.
At the other end of the scale, Margaret Mitchell took 10 years to write Gone with the Wind.
