    If I know what my hub is about and how I want to write it, about 2 to 3 hours with pictures. Sometimes I may start writing a hub and take a few days to write it out. I try not to take long making hubs.

    I haven't wrote many Hubs on here as of yet, but the few I have wrote only took a few minutes each...  If you already know what you are talking about and you free-style your way through, it is like an ongoing "instant message" on the messenger while spending a minute or so with proofreading, and presto...  If you are writing "Research Hubs" where you have to dig for references, it may take a few minutes longer, but even that is just a couple quotes and links away from completion, if you are a quick searcher with a dynamic brain...
    I suppose not everybody works that way, albeit being overly analytical while writing often leads to the mechanical jargon that I don't care to read...

    To write a hub initially not very long 30-60 minutes typically, unless it is really involved and requires me to take a lot of screenshots or pictures etc.  The writing is the easy part, I spend the longest time assembling the hub here on HP.

    If I am totally familiar with what I write I usually spend a few hours with some researching, writing, getting relevant pictures and composing the hub itself.
    When I just have a basic topic in my head and I have to research a lot to make it into a quality hub, I usually spend more than a day altogether or even more.

    Once I know my topic and have done any research needed, it usually takes me about an hour or two...maybe longer if I'm looking for specific pictures. I tend to collect my ideas into a fully formed idea before I sit down to write.

    Depends on the subject at hand. If its a poem then it does not take much time to submit in here. Say around three to four hours is enough with pics uploading and all. But if its some other subject then it depends solely on the type, it may take sometimes days to complete.
    Thank you..its a good question.

    Very good question here. I always have the titles but when comes to writing the details, it takes a long time because I am not free! I have to do house chores, feed my toddler, get ready food and fight for the computer with my kids!

    I try not to put time constraints on my writing. I pride myself on putting together quality Hubs and for me, it can't be done satisfactorily within a couple of hours. Sentence structure, grammar, metaphors, adjectives and drawing a reader into my story all take time. After I have written a story then the fun work begins with finding and placing photos, highlighting certain words and phrases and generally just putting the Hub together. My last Hub took several days...going back and forth and rewriting segments. Of course, it goes without saying I am not obsessed with typing away hours on end.

    It takes me between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the amount of research I do and how inspired I am about the topic. Over time, it should take much shorter as I gain more experience writing.

    It usually takes me about a week to write a good quality hub.  I like to take the idea and research it until I have a full understanding, then I brainstorm a little and write a few notes on key topics I would like to touch on.

    My hubs are varied. I do some research hubs, some common knowledge hubs, and many personal hubs. It depends on what I want to do in order to have a quality hub. For instance, I did some tribute hubs on recently deceased stars (Don Cornelius, Whitney Houston) and so I gave myself a timeline in order to promote it accordingly with trending Twitter topics and news and google searches. It's all on how you want to reach people in terms of time and quality. Good luck!

    Anything from half an hour to a week, depending on the subject, photos and research.  If I have everything at hand, it just takes an hour or so to put it all together into a Hub, but then again I'm pretty disorganised so that can take a *tad* longer too.

    I am a slow writer and usually would takes me about two hours for writing a hub... and takes longer to do the research and compiling the material to create a hub... I think the more you write the faster you can finish each hub....

    It takes me less than an hour to complete a Hub that contains 700 words or less.  Anything more, takes a little longer but I never go over 2 hours on any hub I write, no matter how long it is, or how many photos I attach.

    I am used to working fast, under pressure and with deadlines so I enjoy the structure of time constraints.  I don't have the patience to sit anywhere for a long period of time because there are so many other things I do besides this.  It's important for me to manage my time accordingly.

    My "Analyze This" series of hubs can take me hours, not including the two plus hours I spend watching the film while constantly pausing and taking notes.

    Otherwise, about an hour or so, on average.
