You start small and build up bit by bit, articles, novellas if you have to, then books. A page and a half of manuscript works out as a page of print/e-book. These days the average book = 350 pp, you decide how many chapters.
Wordcrafter I am not sure if I have read your comment correctly. You hate "books"....the words connected with what you do...".writing".."hubs=articles" (to me). I don't understand. So why do you "write' here at hubpages?
I don't hate other people's books. I just don't have one that I can't get out. Although I don't really write Hubs these days I haven't ruled out writing any, and for now I'm not comfortable (yet) "just deleting" all my stuff.
Heard of 'Bridget Jones' Diary'? That might be a good base to start from. Invent bits to tie it together and give it to someone to read. Work on it a bit more, show it to someone else. Who knows where it'll take you?
