We recently ran a poll on our Twitter account asking authors how long it takes them to write a short story. Below are the results:
It looks like most people take less than 4 weeks to write a short story. For a lot of people it takes less than 1 week. That makes perfect sense since a short story is normally less than 6,000 words, so it really only takes 1 burst of momentum to get a first draft done!
What about you? How long does it take you to generally write a short story? Let us know in the comments below!
