Mark Twain says it best, “I wrote The Innocents Abroad in sixty days” and I could have added a fortnight’s labour with the pen and gotten along without the letters altogether. I worked every night from eleven or twelve until broad daylight in the morning, and as I did 200,000 words in the sixty days, the average was more than 3,000 words a day- nothing for Sir Walter Scott, nothing for Louis Stevenson, nothing for plenty of other people, but quite handsome for me.
