Time to Write a BookIt' time to write a book
So how long did it take to write the most popular textbooks in the underworld?
Five years ago George R. R. Martin released "A Dance with Dragons", the latest book in his TV show "A Song of Ice and Fire", and supporters are eager to know what happens in the throne world. How long does it take to write a book anyway?
PrinterInks.com has compiled an information graphic showing how long it took the writers to write their literature masters. It is definitively George R. R. Martin on the slow side, but let's not forgetting that it took Victor Hugo 12 years to write "Les Miserables". I wish they could write as quickly as John Boyne, who composed "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" in less than three working nights.
Obviously, these are all of different length, but Boyne averaged almost 100 pages per days. When we stick to Martin's tariff for "A Game of Thrones", he is writing less than three pages a page a fortnight.
So how long does it take you to write a novel?
I had to move twice international and lose one of my parents. Let me definitely reply to your individual questions: 1. When (at what age) did you write it?
There were about 130,000 words when I first wrote, but finally it was reduced to about 100,000 words - obviously this is a manageable number of words for most of them. So how long did it take to end? A total of 9 years to write it and another 4 years to find a home for it.
Since some time has elapsed since its release, what do you think about it (quality of the letter, history, etc.)? Some ups and downs in the game? I' m learning a great deal about living and learning to write and tell a good tale. The most important thing is that I have met many other authors and keep doing so through my attendance at literature fairs and conventions and through my invitation to lectures and other events.
In what way has it helped you in the areas of literacy, creative thinking, stamina, work ethics, time managment or other individual skills that could profit from the initial composition of a novel? Of course it is important to me to publish my history, otherwise I would not have spend so much time to write and publish it.
Concerning literacy, the most important thing I learnt was that there really is a great deal of transliteration in this, because the first sketches are really garbage, or at least very incoherent to be momentous. It is the author's task to redesign our chaotic everyday lives so that they make more sense to us.
In the end, a author has to ask himself the question: What has change for the key personality? Finally, I suggest that you ask yourself: "Do you have a compelling history that you need to get off your chest? No. I don't have a history to tell. "If not, try to write first. To write a novel is very strenuous and takes a great deal of time and dedication.
So the only excuse I was able to write the novel for nine years was because I had to write that novel and the history screamed to get out. There is much to be learned from the process of creating stories, and you don't have to spend years trying to write a long novel just to find out that it doesn't work for you or has no markets for it.
Have a good pen. To write a book is the simple part. The letter will only take a few month. Really, as I said, what lasts so long is to write a good book. The design of a book is indispensable, as if one had no ideas or a design, one is essentially at the end.
They must also be responsible for the organisation of your book and the desired gender. Have you any ideas what you'll write on the back? They should also find out to stay ahead of the match and give an appropriate review.
It will probably be intense, but make sure you don't worry about the work. Next, the processing will take forever. It' really an ungrateful skill. Well, tl;dr, typing doesn't take very long, as 7/8 of the time is spent working on it. It'?ll take a few month to write.
Those are great- these are all the quizzes I had before my first novel, and while I think the answer will be different for every author out there, it's interesting to see what they say. 3 ) It took 3 1/2 years to end it, but then I had it worked and that took loners.
4 ) It is a historic destiny with a modern "frame" - the historic part contains a romantic tale, but I think it is more historic than romantic. 5 ) Most of the storyline is about a young lady who appears on the Oregon Track. Nowadays, it's about another young lady who gets the Oregon Way woman's history.
All I had to do was make a big overhaul for an editorial staff and I still like my stories and my people. 7 ) Publishing traditionally is a long and demanding task. Took about eight month to find an operative, and that was a random trial. But I did it because I wanted to tell the tale and find out how to write a novel.
9 ) There were all possible ups and downs of the write processes, the query processes, the edits, the revisions, and so on. 10 ) I like your last one, but it's really difficult to say because I learnt so much from my first novel, but that's the kind of thing that's really difficult to say.
You' ll be learning all kinds of things about yourself and the writein' processes. Savor it and be open for the whole procedure! You' re not saying what you've written so far. At what time ("at what age") did you write it? When I was 51 years old I began my first novel as a brief history.
I had just lost my mother and I was writing to get over my mourning. They were very well accepted and they wanted more, so I chose to dedicate myself to history and it became a novel. So how long did it take to end? It' a tale of bravery and sympathy, with wonderfully welcoming personalities, lively descriptions and a pledge of hopes and healings.
Since some time has elapsed since its release, what do you think about it (quality of the letter, history, etc.)? And I like my way of writing and everyone who has ever studied the book, too. This means I have both a released hardcover and pocket book in both the hardcover and pocket book markets AND I have a self-published e-book on more than one platform:
Your book can be uploaded directly to KOBO and Amazon without contacting a publishing house. On the other hand, the last thing you want is for the reader to believe torn away because the book is full of types, impoverished vocabulary and negligent offense evolution. Be part of your own group of authors and make contact.
I' m excited about the continuation, but I' m hesitant to take over. Finding a publishing house lasts as long as the book is written. You' ll need to have a script ready before you start the book making unlike non-fiction, where you can just go and buy an original and write the book.
"and I' ve made about $1,500 so far. Yet typing is a long time, not getting a prolific fast schema. I' ve got to expand my audiences, which requires time and a great deal of work. The same applies to authors and artists.
Sure, I would like to earn book prizes and million of bucks and get the big picture Deal, who wouldn't? That'?s not what makes me write. I am passionate about my work, my art, my joy and my creativeness and my heritage to the rest of the underworld. Some ups and downs in the game?
I have a writer's trainer who has a motivating shield in her work area. Helping me to go through the hard times with concentration and stamina. Submitting the script to the publisher is like the first time your kid goes to SCHOL. In what way has it helped you in the areas of literacy, creative thinking, stamina, work ethics, time managment or other individual skills that could profit from the initial composition of a novel?
I' ve been a writer for over thirty years, so the subject was there before I started to write novels. I' ve found that I really enjoy the creation making processes. I' m always thinking about the story, the characters etc. It' they begin to do things I sometimes don't want and it's just me who writes them down.
There' s a kind of magical novelism that simply does not appear in any other way, in which history prevails and the author becomes a channel for this other world. It' an unbelievably stimulating experience! Oh dear, you probably won't like my response in the near future. When I was seven or eight, I began to write.
You are interested, I am posting under my proper name here and the book (and its sequel) is at Amazon. It' good as a self-publication/kindle book. If I may say so, the letter is far above the typical "indie". Prior to that there were writings, rewrites, writing other things, workshops, three students at the college (none of whom worked directly on this novel, but all helped ), sale of a totally different storyline of fantasies, a postgraduate college and several positions.
It' a much better book with much more long-term promise than if I had held on to the story it was in high schools. It took much less time to continue and the third book in the show was supposed to be faster. The time it takes will vary depending on how quickly you write and how much you need to review what you find out the first time.
Traditional publishing or not is almost exclusively dependent on whether it is ready for the markets (publishers have never given me a denial of forms or a quality-based denial - I was told: "I love your letter, but we don't know how we would do it. If he is flying as an independent novel or not is up to how much you want to promote him and how good he is.
I have been a writer for about twenty-two years now and have authored and edited about 40 stories or in the publishing industry's pipelines (two in proofreading, one in proofreading). I' ve authored two volumes a year. It would take me about three month to write 140,000 words and then reduce it to about 120-130,000.
That last book I penned took much longer than normal. In October, however, I had to write a novel. The book took about 5-6 months. Designing is not the whole thing. One has to take time to verify the proof, and of course sometimes one has to go away for even a few short hours to advertise the preceding book.
The last time I looked it up, it took about 5 month to cover research, typing, editorial etc. But the more you write, the simpler it gets. However, a good job needs time. I' ve only met a few guys who can write 300 pages of novels in 3 or 4 workdays. Within half an hours Isaac Asimov had written a tale on television.
After the publication of the book, there were a number of stories in the Medienblitz that Santmyer needed 50 years to write the 1,334-page novel. It took Edward Gibbon (1737 - 1794) 20 years to write "The Decline and Downfall of the Roman Empire"..... John Boyne, an Irishman writer, said he was so absorbed in this gripping story about a Holocaust lived young man that he would write the whole thing in two and a half day and hardly stop eating or sleeping during the tore.
While he realizes that his other books took his mind and writing a few weeks, this tale just couldn't be slower. Admittedly, Jack Kerouac spends seven years traveling around America and taking verbose notations all the time, but the real fruit of his work took less than a whole month to put on the record.
It is remarkable that he type the whole design on a 120 feet long sheet of telex pad that he glued together before he wrote. Aurthur Conan Doyle spent three days to write the novel, which presented the famous work of Sherlock Holmes' detectives to the people. It was also remarkable because it was the first Sherlock Holmes tale to be adjusted to the canvas.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the famous writer from Russia, has written this in 26 short stories and simultaneously committed crimes and punishment. Later he married the young shorthand writer, to whom he was dictating the history.
