    Probably about 2 months or so... I enjoy writing a lot for a few months until I break my computer or decide to try exercise for the 8th time, then in my downtime I often just feel like laying outside and doing nothing...

    I gotta say, I do love the HubPages Community and I will continue to be an active member of this amazing collection of talented writers for a very long time to come, even if I do take a month or two off here and there...

    Mine is about a week. The reason being that I have been busy doing other stuffs that are not system related. Will bounce back soon.

    Rajan, I have published 37 Hubs in 95 days. There was a period of about 10 days during which I didn't publish any articles. I was taking care of a relative who was ill, so my attention was focused elsewhere.

    So far, just one week and it's because I've got too many other things going on!  I'd love to be able to publish at least once every 2 days.

    I have gone about a month without publishing a hub. I have work, family and life issues to attend to that takes me away from writing sometimes.

    Almost 2 months over Christmas. It was a busy time and I was in the depths of morning sickness. I actually feel like the break refreshed me and I will make myself take breaks from HP from time to time. Sometimes it's good to take a step back and recharge.

    1 week, because I needed a rest after 30/30.

    I try to complete drafts to complete hub at least twice a week now.

    No need to try faster IMHO.

    It can be as long as 3 weeks before I can get another hub  published due to work commitments and family commitments. So basically it's a lack of time with me. But I also tend to do a lot of research - facts and photos - and this takes up a lot of time so it can be and usually is a while in between publishing each hub.

    About three days in recent times, pressing issues and family to attend to, at the end of the day, I was too wiped out to be of any use.

    I think I went a between two and three weeks without publishing over the Christmas period. It's a busy time and my brain couldn't cope with Christmas and writing hubs!!

    A couple of weeks. When out of town or when I'm remodeling a rental. Even then I'm usually writing just not posting anything.

    I can write on an airplane, car, record into my phone while driving (I know I shouldn't but don't want to forget my idea) or sitting in a waiting room at the doctor's office.

    I have only been here for five weeks, but I did go nearly a week without publishing. Then I did five in two days. I have 37 up now and will publish another tomorrow. The 30/30 challenge is intense, but it's great training for getting a good pace going.

    Once in awhile I have to go about a week before a hub is ready for publication. Those are times when I am swampled with other projects to finish or I might be tweeking some of my other hubs. I don;t like going too long..

    I have gone 3 or 4 weeks without publishing a hub. At the moment its been around 3 weeks since my last one. I thought that when I went part time from my job that I would have more time to do more writing, but it has been the opposite. I seem to get caught up in other things and family life. I've been looking after my elderly mother in law, which takes up much of my time during the day. Then my daughter is home and other things get in the way of writing. I am off work on holiday for a few days next week, so hopefully I can get some hubs published then.

    Last year I went a few months without publishing anything. I was too busy planning my wedding and just couldn't find the time to publish the quality hubs I started with. I preferred to take a hiatus rather than publish lower quality hubs.
