I’m sure you’ve heard the stories of people who’ve written a book in 30 days. You may have even wondered why it’s taking you so long to write a book.

Can I let you in on a secret…?

Being able to churn out a book in 30 days is a rare talent. It’s even more rear to be able to produce anything that a publisher or a reader would consider quality in 30 days or less.

For the majority of first time authors it takes longer because there are fundamental aspects of writing you must learn first. Then, once these fundamentals are learned, it takes more time to master them. It’s only with this mastery that a writer is able to produce quality, faster.

As a publisher, I can tell you that writing your book(s) faster MUST NOT be your goal!

Instead focus on these production basics:
  • Strengthen your imagination: build your capacity to create so you can do so at will. You can produce much quicker if you aren’t waiting for inspiration to come,
  • Develop your writing skill: practice with short stories and flash fiction or articles (for non-fiction writers). Be ready and able to craft characters, conflict, climax and closing (or resolution). This saves loads of time with rewrites and revisions,
  • Take control of the schedule: You determine how you will spend your 24 hours each day just like everyone else, allocate specific times for writing and work that schedule like a job. Once you master the point above, you will be much more productive during writing periods and you will be able to plot your book’s ETA,
  • Develop a support team: writing a book isn’t all about the manuscript, get reviewers and copy editors in place before you start your next project. Make sure you have a publishing plan and that you have your production budget set aside or planned for before you start you next project. These concerns are major distractions and can easily derail a project.


It doesn’t have to take forever to write a book if you know the steps to take.

This is your dream and it’s worth the effort!

Feel free to comment or ask questions below, or discuss how you were able to increase your production speed.

Until next time, keep writing!
