Oz Whiston writing as Oz Drummond

This is not a contest...

It's not a contest. Really. But it's a rather amazing statistic from Elizabeth Moon. I've read many of her books and enjoyed them. Railroad ("RR") is writing very deep and complicated books. He's taking his time to do that. This is not about that so much as it's about just how many words in print this particular woman writer has. (And I'm sure others, like Kate Elliott, have similar stats.) Again, it's not about E. Moon, per se.

What struck me was how little respect women writers get.

Three million+ words in print.


It also strikes me how slow I am and no, my words are NOT that much better and deeper. I'm just slow and life gets in the way.
