How Long Does It Take?

Olivia Newport provides some great tips for writers.


Two questions I get on a steady basis are:

1. How long does it take to write a book?

2. Do you do all the research before you start writing?

Whether you’re published, contracted, or aspiring, I suspect these questions are familiar to you.

The answer I give to the first question is, “Deadlines are very motivating.” When I started publishing steadily, writing became regulated. I know how many months remain until the next contracted book is due, and that’s how long it takes to write it (sometimes less). I often feel like people ask how long it takes because they think there is a right answer for how long it should take to write a book, which of course is not true.
