Can You Write a Book a Month?

By Ruth Barringham

Being able to write a book a month is something that is talked about a lot on the internet.

But is it possible to write a book that quickly?

There are many variables to this and surprisingly it’s not just about how fast you can write, which is important to say the least.

One other thing to take into consideration is the length of your book.

Some manuscripts are only 10,000 to 15,000 words, while others are up to 150,000 words. It all depends on the type of book you’re writing.

So let’s look at a middle ground of 50,000 to 80,000. That’s huge for a non-fiction book and average for a work of fiction.

So if you were to aim at writing 4,000 words a day, 5 days a week, you’d be writing 20,000 words a week (I’ll let you have the weekends off). So in 4 weeks (one month) you can write 80,000 words (20,000 words per week multiplied by 4 weeks).

And that’s plenty of words for a book-length manuscript.

To put it another way, if a page has 250 typed words on it, then you’d need to type 16 pages a day to get your 4,000 words written, which is easily do-able.

A page of typing should only take about 10 minutes (if you’ve prepared a really good outline to follow) so 16 pages can be written in 160 minutes which is less than 3 hours.

And if you tell me that you don’t have 2-3 hours a day to devote to your writing, then you’re either lying or you’re not really a writer. If writing is important to you you’ll find the time to do it no matter what it takes.

So getting back to writing a book in a month, I’ve just shown you that it really is possible. And I was only talking about writing 5 days a week and 4 weeks a month, so you can use the extra days to edit, proof and publish your work.

And if you’re not sure how to go about it or where to start, there are literally thousands of websites, blogs and publications dedicated to helping you achieve this goal.

So no matter what type of book you want to write, and even if you have no idea at all what to write about, now you have a few ways you can get started and in just a month, you’ll have your manuscript written.
