To write the dirty draft? Not long at all. To get it all polished up and ready to go? At least one major revision and a few smaller ones. It’s the way I roll. I wish I could be a cleaner, more linear writer, but I’m not. In the end, I come up with something I’m proud of and can stand behind. So all together, from draft to CEs? Probably 6 – 9 months all together.
