The not so exact transcript:
Another question I get asked pretty often is, ‘how long does it take to write a book?’ That’s a tough question to answer because I never work on just one book from start to finish. Usually what I do is draft a book, then set it aside and go to work on a second book. When the second book is drafted, I go back and edit the first one. After the edits are finished, I’ll set it aside again and draft a third book. After that draft is finished, I’ll come back and do the final edits on the first book.
When it’s all said done, it really takes about eighteen months to put a book together. Take that into consideration when you sit down and finish it in six hours. That’s eighteen months of labor.
