Is it bad that it's almost been 6 months of me writing my novel, and I'm only on the 8th chapter on the first draft! Yes, it all sums up to 45k words but shouldn't I have been further now? I try write 500 words a day but I still feel it's going to take forever to finish this draft... I've tried writing a full length novels in the past and never finished...and this is the furthest i've got with a novel. Is this normal that I'm such a slow writer? Sorry if this is confusing and thank you!
