Speakers & entrepreneurs have the notion to write a book(s) to be the next Charles Dickens or to share their success methods. But the truth is, book writing is extravagant, but the process to reach that point is formidable. Speakers tend to write biographies, novels, and other types of lengthy books that become debacles.
Lots of speakers at times seek clout in very substandard ways. Book writing is a huge task that takes immense discipline, training, knowledge, effort plus a desire. This isn’t a one-hit-wonder, publish the book and never write a book again.
Book writing is an art & craft that can engulf many years of your life. You have to write countless drafts, perform editing and proofreading; which can take months.
According to an article published on SelfPublishing.com “The average time to write a book for most authors is 180 days, or 6 months, more or less. Usually, it takes authors anywhere from 4–8 months to complete a book. However, you can definitely write a book faster than that”!
The standard timeframe it takes to write a book depends on these factors:
- The genre of the book being written
- The author’s typing speed
- How many writing sessions the author has scheduled
- How much editing and revision is required
Are You A Fast Writer Or Slow Writer
If your writing/typing speed is 40 words per minute (wpm), then this is the industry average. Your ideal writing speed should be 120–140 wpm in order to come close to writing books.
If you get tired easily when doing mundane tasks, writing books may not be for you. Those with slow typing speeds would easily give up when stressed out by the constant mistakes being made on the keyboard.
Do you have an authentic enough reason to be writing a book? Are you doing it to gain fame or fortune? If so you’ll be disappointed. Writing without a 100% decent purpose will hinder your chances of even knowing where to start i.e. topic, genre, book length, etc.
Many people writing books do so while they’re employed or self-employed, and therefore can do it staying financially afloat. Book writing requires lots of advertising, along with persuading publications to review and publish your work. Don’t be surprised when your aspirations come up short.
Misapprehension Of An Author’s Life
A fallacy about writing books is that it’s a forthcoming and easy process. Just take a week to write a book, publish, then make millions whilst sitting on a beach in Phuket, Thailand. Unless you’ve been writing for years or just got lucky you’ll be incapable of making big bucks so swiftly.
Truth is many book writers spend their livelihood in front of a computer at home after office hours. They have a day job, because very few writers live off their art. Writing isn’t a constant start & stop process. You’ll need to focus on a book for 12 hrs. a day, with minimal breaks. Vast majority don’t have time to write so frequently.
Disclosing Your Secrets
When speakers write books, they are potentially exposing their agenda to millions worldwide. Your success plans should be confidential PERIOD!!
If you want to avoid having your plans leaked, exploited, and mimicked keep it confidential. The best way to do so is avoid writing books.French Political Leader Napoleon Bonaparte made the quote above famous during his prominent days. Your adversaries are nothing but weak-minded and feeble. Ignoring your adversaries and letting them be embarrassed is the greatest way to defeat them.
