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.
I'll go with two hours. Between writing and research and finding pictures it can be more, but rarely less.
Ok cool, do you write/type fast or slow? Thanks for sharing btw!!!
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.

I was just wondering how long a hub takes you to write from concept to published? I am using hubpages as the start of my freelance writing career and I am working being more productive. I am also only doing my second hub now. I have an editor now so that will add time to the process still...

How long do you take on average to write a hub. I mean the whole process, research, writing etc. What would you say is the average for you?

Hey. I was wondering how long it takes you to write a hub. Perhaps an average time overall or for various types of hubs. I read somewhere of a guy who wrote 10 hubs a day for 10 days! In my dreams. I take well over two hours per hub. Probably more if I added it all up. Thanks,Juliet

Hi Hubbers,I am curious as to how long you would spend from start to finish on any particular hub, do you set yourself an amount of time to spend on it? Would you spend longer than one day on one hub?tlcs is curious!

How long does it take you to write a hub?I am a new-ish Hubber. I take about 3-4 hours to write a hub - from idea formulation, research, writing, editing - from start to finish. Is that too long? Not long enough?
