A friend of mine is really concerned that it’s taking too long to write her book.
She’s writing a science fiction novel, and she’s a couple of years into the process.
The book isn’t related to her job or her career. She’s not counting on it to help her grow her business or get an important message out to the world.
I told my friend not to rush her book.
It’s a passion project, and because she has to create a whole new world from her imagination, it might take another year or two for her to finish.
But how long should it take you to write YOUR book?
If you’re writing a non-fiction book to grow your business, you can’t afford to take years to get it done.
If you want to change people’s lives with your book, you need to get it out sooner rather than later.
If you know your book will help you get more clients, get media exposure for your business, or earn extra income for your family, what are you waiting for?
From idea to published book shouldn’t take you more than a year.
Your readers are waiting for your book. If not now, when? It’s your time.
