    That's like asking "how many hours a day do I have to train to be a professional basketball player?" The major hurdle isn't hours invested.

    As for Sorkin, et al, the question is "when's my deadline?" That's how long it takes to write a script.

      Sorkin has noted on several occasions he is in a constant state of writer's block.

      But, this also goes a bit hand-in-hand with the "famous" Bruce Dickinson quote. Yes, the Bruce Dickinson. "I put my pants on just like the rest of you -- one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records."

      That's a good quote.

        True. Thanks Jeff.

          Depends on the subject and how familiar you are with it.

          It took me about 4 years to write Goodbye, Iraq because of the depth of research.

          A lot of assignment stuff is based of existing IP, so there's less work involved there. Originals are quite difficult to perfect.
