Can we have both? Maybe. I do know authors that can put out books a lot faster than I can, and they're good too. But I've also come across talented authors that are so busy churning out the books that they don't take time to really dig deep and question everything. They don't challenge themselves or grow and while their books are good, after awhile they start to be repetative. Maybe not the plot, but the style, the characters, the themes all blend together. Sometimes even the situations seem cliched. Is it because they're hurrying to meet deadlines? I don't know. But I do know sometimes I wish they would take just a little longer. I'm willing to wait for a stellar book rather than have a quick but less satisfying read.
What do you think?
