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.
I agree, quality hubs do take time to generate.
You are not alone! Takes me about the same amount of time but usually over a few weeks or month.
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!
Good point about editing hubs after publication. I didn't take that into account.
The "hub ideas" is an excellent one and I'm using a similar method.
That is also an issue for me, the "what's going on around the house" always impacts my writing.
I may go back to my hubs and add pics and videos at a later time.
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.
