How do you make sufficient time and organize your time in order to consistently write quality Hubs?
For those Hubbers who work full-time, even perhaps have families as well, when do you write? Do you complete a Hub in one sitting?
OK, I feel honest today healingsword. Like today, I wrote a hub. The cost - not doing the laundry at a laundry mat. I will find time for that tomorrow instead bright and early . . . maybe If only I knew where an all night place was then it would be no problem until the drier gets fixed . . . otherwise, nowadays one a week is all I can afford, some mad dashes to say hi now and then, and read everything I can while always voting.
And, yes I tend to do it in one sitting, although a trick is to walk a bit every 20 minutes or so for circulation. Stand on my head now and then for blood flow too, just kidding. But, I've read it seems to have scientific validity. Oh you can have that hub if you want
Got to go to work, adios . . .
I almost never complete a Hub in one sitting because of the research involved and the work of creating the best possible title, tags and summary. And often it takes a while to find an appropriate illustration. A Hub usually takes me at least three sittings.
When I get the idea I quickly write a title and then a partial draft or outline. That can take as little as half an hour. I can always stay up half an hour later to get this done.
Then, when I have bits of time, sometimes as little as 15 minutes, I will seek out and compile factual information. I often have ideas for refining my draft when I'm away from my computer. I always write these ideas down and keep the notes near the computer.
Then when I have a good block of time -- it can be a day later or a month later -- now that I have all the material I will rewrite and put my copyright and contact info on it, and complete the summary and tags and links, mount the photo, and tweak the title. I'm always tempted to post right away, but it is best to go do something else and return to the piece and re-read it one last time for clarity and style.
i try to do it in one setting. set a target like a hub a week to force you to write them

In the 'add more capsules' box on the top right side in the edit mode of hubs, the capsules are in crazy a crazy order. I always have to hunt for what I'm looking for. Is there any way to alphabetize it or put the choices in some kind of order. The same with the top tool bar thing when you scroll...
