While I can’t tell you how long it will take you to write your a course in miracles I do know that those who consistently make writing appointments in their calendars and hold themselves to it (often with the support of a writing buddy, book coach or a book writing class) can often predict, after a few weeks, how soon they’ll have a first draft. This proud author wrote his book in record time. And he swears he didn’t hire a ghostwriter.
If you’re wondering how long it will take to write a book, I suggest you spend time to clarify the market and book concept, outline the book and then write for two to three weeks. Be consistent about your weekly commitment and see how much you accomplish in that time. At that point you should be able to project how long it will take you to complete writing your book.
If, in that time, you get little accomplished, you’ll also realize it’s a good idea to reach out for more help in whatever form works best for you-writing buddy, writing group at a local library, a book writing class, an editor or a writing coach.
