While lurking on Twitter, I came across this comment from writer Matt Sturges: “As of today I’ve written sixty-one comic books, which is about 1,342 pages of comics. It seems like a lot when you put it that way.”
Thus, I thought it might be interesting to visit my script folder on the external hard drive and see how many pages I’ve written. I did not include the synopsis or outlines, just pages of comics. Lo and behold, as of today, 1000 pages. Exactly. It breaks down this way: 461 pages of published work (including mini-comics) and 539 pages of unpublished work. It means I write about 200 pages a year, approximately 17 pages each month.
That doesn’t feel like a lot. I should be writing more.
