    How much time does it take for you to create your Hubs?

    I am asking about high quality, visually appealing, more than 1000 words Hubs. Can be any topic. Just really curious to know if the consumed time for writting a good article considerably differ among Hubbers.

    I haven't written a Hub for sometime now, but I have placed well over 300 over the past six years.   It generally takes me a around a day to write and place one.   Most of the work goes into the writing.  This is edited, checked over a few times.   The selection of suitable pictures comes next.   The cut and paste and placement of pictures, once all the preliminary work has been done takes only 20 to 25 minutes or so.   But to summarize: total time for an average 1000 to 1400 word piece with 5 to 9 pictures, the best part of a day.

    I've never placed a video, so I can't comment on that aspect.

    Hope this has been of use.

    I banged my latest one out in a little over an hour, just this past weekend. Others have taken me several days. It depends on how "inspired" I get, I guess.

    I don't write nearly as much or as often as most hubbers.  Some writers here have HUNDREDS of works published.  The reason I don't, as they say, "bang out a hub a week," ( or even a hub a month) is because that's me~ my style, ~ my method ~ my basic personality.  I spend much more time thinking, planning & creating mentally than I do in the actual activity.  That's not limited to my writing but just about everything. 
    I've been thought of as a procrastinator but that's much too simplified.  I know what I want to do and I know that eventually I will do it.  I simply go about things in my own way in my own time frame.
    When I have a topic in mind, I can start, finish, read, change, edit and publish a hub in excess of 1200 words, photos, videos etc in 3 to 4 hours.  If it hasn't been worked out in my mind from beginning to end, I won't even bother to sit down to write. 
    IMHO, every single writer does their own thing~ whatever works for them.  I may rewrite an entire paragraph over 3 or 4 times until I'm really satisfied with it but other than that, I do not fret or stress over my work.
    I am quite inclined to say that how a writer goes about writing a good article differs considerably among all writers.

      I really do get your point.As a beginner, it's really amusing to learn something from more experienced hubbers.Although I'm not a bad writer myself, what's really dragging me down is my poor English vocabulary.But I plan on improving it and continue.

    I haven't published a Hub in over six months. Once I had near 200 Hubs. I have eight today written in the last year split between informational and creative. Creative Hubs I would say about a day+ and at times less to within a few hours. The inspiration of the latter is driven by a powerful muse.

    Even though the same muse leads me seeking her as audience, I am more methodical and perhaps more fussy. I spend more time with research while find it difficult not to over explain, which can be a fault. So, there is much more editing.

    With 'perspective' and opinion Hubs or those where I explore an 'idea' of this or that it may take weeks or more. I had once published a short series where I read a couple of books first. 

    As far as putting it into the Hub Tool it could be a couple of hours to a day or more. I copy/paste from a Word document and usually have my images selected and tables - polls done. Today, I always give a Hub at least a day or two to incubate. Then I edit it once or more in the Hub Tool. I can share stories where I discovered mistakes or improvements once published. Sometimes there were atrocious mistakes or very humorous ones.

      Thank you for answering. I truly prefer quality over number of Hubs as well. Though I'm not so good at writing, it's still better to have less high quality Hubs than numerous shabby ones. Less is more!
