From the moment you get an idea for a hub to the moment you click on publish, what is your average processing time (including research, drafting, editing, etc.)?

I too have a long list of ideas. You seem to work in pretty much the same way as me. Even if the subject is one I know; I tend to check and double check the facts.
Thanks for answering my question. I find the methods you've described to be very helpful even though it make take some time to achieve a final product.
You are not alone! Takes me about the same amount of time but usually over a few weeks or month.
I agree, quality hubs do take time to generate.
Thanks for responding to my question. You are correct that it depends on numerous factors and, thus, there will be no "right" answer. However, I want to get a feel for the various processes writers take for publishing their hub.
I understand what you are saying. I tend to write hubs on topics where I have previous experience, so the researched time is reduced. If you are approaching an unfamiliar topic, it will take more time.
I agree. I can get a hub finished in about 6 to 8 hours but that is often spread out over weeks and sometimes months!
I have written hubs from the top of my head in an hour or so, but they have been on topics where I have had life experience, so I didn't need to research much at all..
I've discovered it takes me way longer too!
The "hub ideas" is an excellent one and I'm using a similar method.
Good point about editing hubs after publication. I didn't take that into account.
I may go back to my hubs and add pics and videos at a later time.
That is also an issue for me, the "what's going on around the house" always impacts my writing.
Have you discovered errors on hubs you didn't spend much time proofreading after publication?
Yes I have, but proofreading has always been a weak spot for me. I can read something 10 times, but not discover the errors in print. Having cataract surgery next week, might improve.
