“Writing a novel takes too long…”
We’re all impatient these days. New writers feel that while writing Kindle fiction is exciting, it takes too long. One of my students completed NaNoWriMo last year, and is revising her novel, with the help of an editor. I suggested that while she’s revising, she start work on another novel.
“Maybe I’ll do another NaNoWriMo, but writing a novel takes too long…” she responded.
Yes, writing a novel takes time. You can write short stories, of course, and publish them. Alternatively, to publish faster, consider publishing serials. When you publish a serial, you write your novel, and publish as you go.
