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.
