How quickly can you write a book?

You’ll probably encounter books, courses and seminars that allegedly teach you to write a book in an absurdly short length of time. Since a book could have just three words in it, it is actually possible to write a book in less than ten seconds!

However, most writers of “real” books take from three months to a year or more to write. And then the book requires more time for revising, editing, designing and marketing.

Very few self-published books come out “on time.” Everything takes longer than you think it will. If you rush, you will make mistakes that will take additional time to correct. It’s much more important to be good than to be fast or first.

The book below was supposed to go on sale on March 1, 2018. I'm now aiming at April 15.

The book below was supposed to go on sale in July of 2010. It should be ready in a year or two. Or, maybe not.
