An observation: At 40 WPM...

A 100,000 word novel would take 2500 minutes, or about 42 hours to type. Roughly one work week if you worked 8 hours a day and then finished the last 2 hours on Saturday.

 

At 60 WPM, 28 hours.

At 80 WPM, 21 hours. Less than a full day if you typed non-stop.

 

All the rest of the time spent on writing at 100,000 page book is knowing what to type, and making sure it's typed correctly.

 

And I took the time to figure out all of that useless information, instead of writing the last 50,000 words to round out my project.

    You missed out brewing and drinking coffee.

    If you write at home, family distractions.

    Distractions on the internet.

    And countless other things.

    Time spent drinking coffee is not deducted from one's life span.

    I find it hard to type while gripping a mug of coffee in my hand and cannot even see the keyboard because of the mug held to my mouth. But none of those things deducts from our lifespan does it? It's just how our time is spent.
