    I was  doing about one or two a week for quite a while. Then I had a block for two or three weeks but I just finished my newest one. A few minutes ago.

    I try to write every day. Sometimes hours at a stretch, other times in spurts and taking frequent breaks. How about you?

    AS the spirit moves me.

    I may write 5 a day, edit and hone them for several days.  I may not write for several days.  I only write or speak when there is something I wish to say.

    I have never published 5 a day.

    I write hubs after being inspired, and it's usually instantaneous.  Sometimes I spin out several hubs, then go a spell without writing any.  My articles are usually involved anyway, as my topic of choice is a person.

    Whatever the context, they are always uber-urgent; as they fall out as quickly as I can type.  I don't do drafts, just spill it out.  I also create positive quotations and they're usually done without outside impetus.

    Whatever feels right at the time is perfect for any writer : )

    depends on my moods, what im feeling.

    im probably an emotional writer. i use my senses to the paper its where most people hear me, feel me or understand me.

    Luckily, I don't have to write for a living, so I can write what I want when I want.  I keep my Hubs and have two blogs.  I average less than one Hub a month.  One of my blogs gets updated quite infrequently, but the other one gets a new post every few days.  I write for less than a few hours at a stretch.  I typically start it and finish it.  I don't like leaving writing projects in progress or I'll never return to them.

    Try to do one every day, sometimes I write more. I want to leave them overnight to stew, and then edit and publish the next day - but often I find myself publishing them straight away.
    I try to write for one hour, but with research etc it is often longer than that.

    I write for a living so I generally spend at least five hours a day everyday writing. Now that I've joined Hubpages I am trying for one hub a day,and I spend about an hour on each.

    I write everyday and several times a day. As soon as a good thought enters my head I have to write it down. I can write for hours or just long enough to get the idea down.

    If we're gauging this in days, then I write just about every day, missing maybe one day a week or so. As for time, it may be as long as six hours or as short as a half an hour. A lot of it really has to do with my schedule, but I try to make as much time as possible.

    I usually write an article every 2 weeks or so, cause most of the days I'm writing tutorials and lessons for my website.
    It usually takes me a couple of hours to finish an article.

    I write when I feel like it.  And for however long I want to write. 

    If I'm not in the mood, I don't do it.  It's hard being creative when I'm not really up for it.

    The more I write the more my hub personal hub score drops, and drops, and...........well you get the picture.  I'd possibly write more if not for that little fact.

    I try to write for an hour a few nights a week and then longer, maybe 3-4 hours, on the weekends. Since I'm so new to online writing, a lot of my "writing" time is actually spent researching the process.

    Well, I write articles and copy for a living so it's pretty much 8 hrs a day.  The downside is that by the time I get home, I have little enthusiasm left for writing, which means my own projects remain dormant for the time being.

    I write about 7-14 hubs a week. On another account though

    I love to write early in the morning, usually for 2 hours at a stretch.  I write every week day.  My routine...  I start off with about 1/2 hours of editing small parts (like a chapter or so) of my work to get the juices flowing, then work for the remaining time on new writing.

    Good luck Earl S. Wynn

    I write almost everyday about anything or just typing on my keyboard. I'm still figuring it out how to be a good writer. smile

    I cannot put writing on a schedule.  There are days when the information, ideas, questions, thoughts, conflicts, etc just flow.  Those day's are the one's where I have to fight to find logic and organization in the things I want to write about.
    Then there are those days when there is nothing.  Days when I cannot create a thought to put on paper, or type into my word processor. 
    I do not consider myself to be creative.  But I do believe I have the ability to ask relevant questions, and organize thoughts that support the topic at hand. 
    How often do I write?  As often as I have ideas.  As often as the thoughts flow.  As often as I can.
