Writing a speculative fiction novel that resonates with readers is tough work. Many writers feel they're doing something wrong when it takes time to create a draft that feels solid and ready to stand on its own two shaky legs.

In fact, one of the very first questions most writers ask me before we start working together is some version of: "How long will it take for me to finish my novel?"

If you're one of those writers, great! I'm going to answer all of your questions by walking you through the process as it typically unfolds with the writers I work with!

 In this episode you’ll learn:


  • The general timeline for writing a debut novel--especially if you’re looking to write an emotionally powerful one. 
  • How many drafts it typically takes to write a solid manuscript.
  • What happens at each phase of the drafting.
  • And so much more…
