It has to be stated, because often I hear writers lament about their writing speed, the size of their catalogs, the books left unwritten in a series. “How to write fast” has become a hot enough topic that there are hundreds of books and podcasts and YouTube videos on the subject. I even have one of my own. But I want us to pause for a minute, take a breath, and realize that it’s ok to produce a book at a time. And that being “prolific” doesn’t have to mean writing twelve books in twelve months.

Prolific is an adjective that can be understood in terms of two intertwined meanings, one literal and one figurative. Literally, to be prolific is to create lots of products – and we mean lots. A classic example is a couple of rabbits kept together for longer than, say, five minutes: you blink a few times and all of a sudden these prolific lagomorphs are surrounded by a zillion little bunnies. This example is especially apt because it touches on the word’s particular relation to the production of offspring. Prolific frequently describes things, especially plants and animals, which generate plenty of children, fruit, or other progeny. In general, though, to call something prolific is to say that it makes a lot of stuff, regardless of that stuff’s type. That means that you could have a prolific car factory (if it makes a lot of cars), a prolific basketball player (if he makes a lot of shots), and so on.
