What amount of time would you be willing to invest in writing a bestseller?
Around what William Peter Blatty did for the Exorcist: sixteen hour days for ten months.
Apparently a lot since I am spending every spare moment writing-and ignoring my house and kid! Seriously though, if one wishes to be a successful writer, one must dedicate time to research, write, proof, edit and finding the correct venue for publication. I am willing to invest as much time as possible.
Whatever it takes! But you left out the most important step--the part involving the editing. Writing gives you the base for your novel, but it's in the editing which can make it a possible bestseller.
I love writting, so I would spend as much time as it took to come up with that bestseller. Let's hope I have already done it, and just haven't hit the "bestseller" list yet. lol
I would spent (and have spent years trying putting together a book that was important to me), but I wouldn't spend any time trying to write a best-seller. First, I wouldn't want the stuff that goes with writing a best-seller. Second, I don't really think aiming to write a best seller is the motive or approach I want with my "real" writing (which is offline writing, not the stuff I do online).
The worst thing in the world for me would be to be expected to go out and do book signings or be out speaking in public, pushing the book. I was once invited to be featured on a local cable news "thing" as someone who writes online and supplements her offline work that way. I was told it would most likely get me more traffic online. I had to decline. "Oh the horror of it all!!!" LOL LOL I can't even stand it when I see my articles on the first page of a search. LOL I'm presently in the process of trying to find ways to bury my stuff so that nobody finds it. LOL So, as you can see, a best seller would be a "horror show" for me.

This is going to sound silly, but I don't know where to start when it comes to investing. I need to start putting money aside, and I would like that money to grow over a period of time. I don't understand how to buy shares, make trades, or sell stocks. (I might have got all of that lingo wrong.) I...
