    I'm just wondering if all articles have to be 600 words, or can they be fewer word? Some times I'm not so long winded.
    W hen I start writing then a 600 word seams a bit long I get writers block around three hundred words.

      I don't believe they have to be, but it's recommended to be at least 400 or 500 words.

        Thanks for your reply, I just find it overwhelming to write a big article and 600 words is not that big, but when you run out of things to say it can be.

    Welcome to HubPages, Splinters smile I would suggest prior to final copy, write down key points in point form wink answer the 5 W's, how and personal conclusion/recommendation, THEN write your full article and you should have a nice number big_smile
