    How long does it take you to write a hub?

    It depends on whether I have stuff prepped ahead of time or not. When I have written lots of notes and then start the hub, I can complete one in about two hours. If I open up a new hub and then find a topic, it can take several hours to research, format etc.

      Cool!! So it depends on whether you prepped for it or if it's completely new hub being started, is that right? BTW Thanks for sharing smile

    I'll go with two hours. Between writing and research and finding pictures it can be more, but rarely less.

      I type moderately fast. I often have to backspace over mistakes though. My fingers generally become sore if I write a hub in one go!

    First I type slow = 25wpm. And I make mistakes. Most articles on average are about 6 hours. Honestly one article may be only 3 - 4 hours. Another I may work on takes months with researching and not hurried. I enjoy the learning process plus I am looking for that 'niche' market of expertise.

    I generally let the content sit overnight or the length of day. I then go back and edit with a fresh perspective. That was taught in college essay and creative writing classes for a practice. The few seminars suggest the same.

    I claim not being the best or some such. I struggle with keeping articles of less words. I tend to overwrite some say, others say not enough and then write their own on a tangent I did not explore. Oh, well . . . I am drifting.

    I don't really put a time on my writing a hub. I just write when the idea comes to my head. Sometimes, it will take a day or two to write and polish a hub that I have written. At one time it took me half a day to complete two hubs.

    It depends on the topic.   Most of my topics are well-researched with lots of references which I believe builds credence.  That said, last night I wrote a hub off-the-cuff and it went together quite fast.   There were no references, just my own personal experience.   Those are the hubs that usually go together fastest for me - within an hour or two.  Researched hubs can take me up to a couple of days off and on because I work outside the home.

    I have to give it at least three hours to reach some of the basic HubPage goals such as a minimum of 700 words, several photos and several capsules.

    I then watch the results and give it more effort if the numbers fall short of what I expect.
