the thing about writing is that the pre-planning time is COMPLETELY different for each writer. some writers don't even have an outline. it's all up to you to decide how long the planning time is. nothing is right or wrong in writing.

It is hard to say. It depends on the writer himself/herself.

It depends on the writer. Some are so picky about the smallest things to he point of having an outline, reading it over, making a character profile, etc. Some are so good they just wing it and it comes out pure gold. Some (me) decide to be like the first one and give up 'cause it's so dang boring. Just do whatever feels right. Something I did is I winged the book that I wrote and right now I'm going back to edit it. Maybe try doing that :)

No one really knows. Every writer has their own way of writing and time to do so

If you're just going for a basic outline, then maybe two weeks at the most. If you're figuring every single aspect out, then it could take a day or a month depending on how long your story is and how much detail you want to figure out.

That's like asking "How big is a dog?" Well, it depends, doesn't it, on whether you're talking about a Chihuahua or a Great Dane. For some people, the ideas come fast and furious. For others, they come slower and more sedately. There are as many answers to this question as there are writers.
