If Billy Corgan continues writing his autobiography at his current pace, he may be writing the next “War and Peace.”

Corgan writes on his Web site he has written 200,000 words so far, but he’s completed only five of 12 intended sections. He says he will probably end up writing half a million words.

By comparison, “War and Peace” is about 560,000 words, and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” is about 200,000 words.
