I would say it usually takes me about 3 hours to write a 1000 word article with 3 pictures and publish it on HubPages. Sometime it takes longer if I need to do a lot of research or decide to take some pictures, etc. How long does it take you to write a Hub?

The formatting always takes longer than I expect, even though I keep it pretty simple. Plus I spend time finding good Amazon products on the Hubs where this makes sense.
Sometimes I spend a lot of time finding the right photo that I can use, or even wait a few days until I can take my own pictures.
Sometimes when I'm having a lot of fun working on a Hub, I spend MUCH more time than necessary polishing it up and adding the right details...
I can relate to spending time tweaking and fine tuning. I often think I have my hub finished, I push the "publish" button, and then I find one more thing to change...
If I typed at full speed, which is 40 words per minute for me, it would take 25 minutes just to type 1000 words. I think the fastest I have produced a hub is probably 2 hours.
Sometimes I surprise myself with my lack of ability to spell correctly- I take time to check for spelling and wrong word issues a few times before I hit the 'publish' button.
