I should tally mine up. I know I had around 700 handwritten pages that I'm still transposing. A little advice:
1. Break the book up into separate files so if one goes corrupt, it's just a section. I lost 16 pages, all single-spaced, original thought one night. Have my novel backed up on my laptop, on our tower, my jump drive, my computer at work, e-mailed to myself and on my phone. 23 years of work is NOT going to be lost!
2. Get some speech recognition software. I have dragon Naturally Speaking 12.0 and it's pretty amazing. You'll have to go back and edit stuff but you can get thoughts down really fast.
