Genevieve Roberts asks:
How do you handle "What's taking so long?"

Well, I know there are some figures out there that discuss writing time and such. You can, if you feel up to it, track those down and compile a report that demonstrates exactly what's taking so long.

Another way to handle this, it would seem, is to discuss how long projects are going to take right from the set out. That way there are no surprises. Get those questions dealt with from the start. It seems that would work.....but I've never really had the opportunity to really do that, so I'm just guessing....<grin />

IMHO, you're working at a pretty good pace if you have produced all of that. :-)
