Stephen King On The Value of Productivity

Panzer was flying around in the Catosphere just enjoying himself when he made a little stop at The New York Times site.

Our big bad boy is doing The Happy Kitty Dance, because he found a post there by one of his favorite authors ... Stephan King.

Mr. King's post is an opinion piece on the value, or lack thereof, of productivity in writing. It appears that in his opinion how prolific a writer is does in some cases have an impact on the quality of the work. As examples, he compares Barbara Cartland (700 published novels) and Ursula Bloom (500 published works) with Agatha Christie (91 combined works) and John D. MacDonald (no exact total given) and then he adds to the comparison with Donna Tartt (3 novels) and John Franzen (5 novels).
Am I or aren't I?

Panzer says, "Hmmm ... Let's see ... I have one short story collection and one soon to be released collection of my Cat Intelligence Greatness ... Does that mean I'm a literary giant?"

Note: This is an e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y l-o-n-g post, so bring a l-a-r-g-e p-o-t of tea and a h-u-g-e muffin.
