I started my first novel when I was 19. I'm turning 29 this month, so I'll have been writing for 10 years this summer. (That makes me feel old.) At this moment I'm revising/rewriting my third novel and about 25,000 words into the first draft of my fourth. So while it's not glacially slow, it's pretty close. But then again, I am getting better. My first, I remember, took three or four years to get to the state of "refinement" <sardonic chuckle> that it's in. (Yeah, it's trunked now.) My second took about two or three, though I can't remember exactly. This one that I'm revising has been just over a year, though it's needed a lot more major plot overhauls than my others.

I will say this, I am finding that if it doesn't "FEEL" right, it isn't.
