How long have you been working on your latest (or very first) novel?

For writers in the brand-new 20-Year Novel Club, this is a question that might get a wide variety of responses.

The Club is for writers who want an easy way to get motivated to write, meet other writers to discuss their projects, and share their progress each and every day. (You’re still welcome to join us if this sounds like you.)

No matter how long it takes you to write your novel, it will be an incredible achievement on your part. If it takes you a year, that’s amazing. If it takes you 20 years, you’re in good company: see my blog post about how Michael Crichton invested 20 years in writing his novel Sphere.

So, let us know in the comments below: How long have you been working on your novel, and when do you think you might be finished?

If you’re a total newbie, we’d like to hear from you, too!

  1. I would love to write a novel and I think sometimes I have a good idea. I get to writing, the most so far is about 6,000 words and then I can’t think of anything else. I try to think of things people would want to read but I come up with nothing. Blogging has helped give me ideas by doing so many challenges. I guess I just don’t know how to generate ideas.
