Online inks & toners store Printerinks has released a new bookish infographic. This time, we can take a look at how much time did most famous writers spend on writing their most prominent works.

How long does it tale to write a masterpiece? There is no simple answer. Also, it’s not a rule that the longer the novel the more time it takes to write it.

When inspiration does strike, some famous novelists have proven that a work of fictional brilliance can be produced in a matter of days.
