How long to write a book?


Holly Robinson author of 'Beach Plum Island' and the 'The Wishing Hill' says in her blog 4 - 10 years. That question was asked at the Newburyport Literary Conference. Moderated by O Magazine editor Lucy Kaylin. Does that offer hope?

    Wow! Definitely a contrast to ponder. I wrote one work related book specific to that place of work. It took about 9 months. I would like to try fiction. My wanders a lot, so unsure if it would ever reach the end.

    Thank you Alan. I believe your advice is very sound and well heeded :-) I like the analogy with a child. I can see it is like raising child within life.

    Interesting. How is it there in the UK this moment? Nice I hope. I just went back to review all those books I started last year - 3. Now, how to choose one . . . only one to begin that quest of 4 - 10 years while continuing exploring writing. hmmm ..
