Just tell yourself if the queen can do it, then you can do it.

Just tell yourself if the queen can do it, then you can do it.

 

Queen Victoria (the one born in 1819 and passed away 64 years later in 1901)

She wrote about 2,500 words a day.  This is far more than Graham Greene's 500 and Stephen King's 2,000.


If you take her journal plus her correspondence, Queen Victoria wrote about 60 million words.  That is a lot of writing.  141 

volumes, seven decades, 43,000 pages.


She did this running a country and raising NINE children.   Wears me out to think about it.  Obviously she had lots of help, which 

she could afford.


Can you afford to write?  Can you afford not to write?


Dear Readers and Dear Writers, as my sixth grade teacher, Mr. Smallwood, would say, “A word to the wise is sufficient.”
