How fast do writers type?

Thinking about authors and how some of them seem to churn out a novel every six months or so, I wonder just how fast writers actually type. It would be interesting to see just how accurate they are as well. Do they do a spell check after a chapter, or page by page? Is anyone still writing their books out in longhand on stacks of paper?

So here is a little addiction that you might find fun online, just to see how your typing skills match up….my highest score was 57 wpm today. I need practice………………..

  1. I think I head once that it was 140 wpm. Sounds impossible right? Mine is currently 60 with no error and 67 with few errors. Good luck!
