If you give yourself three years to write a book, you’ll take three years. If you give yourself three days, you’ll take three days. Of course, some books can’t be written in three days. But the point is that we humans can stretch time. Working under pressure is, for many of us, an opportunity to achieve more in less time. Such is the case with books. The biggest mistake we can make as writers is to be too flexible with our deadlines. The more time we give ourselves, the more time we will take—even when it’s unnecessary. Some topics are timely, so we need to be quick in writing and publishing.
