What do you think of my remarks? Would you do it again? What was the subject of your book?

Writing a book is a lot of work. I would say 1000 hours, a half year. For that I would want at least $25,000 in royalties. Sure, there may be more to it than just the money but that attitude will fade quickly after you have written a few.
