Christmas is coming - what about the HomeBuilder application form?

There have been many great pieces of literature written in less than eight weeks, but unfortunately the HomeBuilder application form is not one of them.

It’s now eight weeks since the scheme was announced and most Australians still can’t apply.

In 1843 Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in just six weeks.

A lot of other classics have been written in that time or less. 

Here’s just a few:

  • The Boy In the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne – written in just two and a half days
  • The Tortoise and the Hare by Elizabeth Jenkins – written in three weeks
  • A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle – written in three weeks
  • On the Road by Jack Kerouac – written in three weeks
  • The Gambler by Fydor Dostoyevsky – written in 26 days
  • As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner - written in six weeks
  • King Solomon’s Mines by H Rider Haggard – written in six weeks

If classics like this can be written in less than eight weeks, why can’t a simple application form?

Seriously, it shouldn’t take this long.

Hurry Up!  Christmas is coming.
