How long does it take you to write a quality hub?
We are all writers here, so I'd like to know how much time it takes for us to write quality hubs.
I write a hub article in less than a hour, but working on the article and polishing it takes me more than a week.
My highest rated hub (score of 84) took me 40 minutes to complete. Some of my other ones, such as as my Public Transport one, took around 2 hours, on and off. I suppose I write a bit fast.
totally depends on the content. If you are not writing a poem or personal experience, then it takes more time to collect matter and then read all the aspects and then write a new one.
I've been starting hubs, and then leaving them alone. I hard copy write out some ideas, and then sit down to type them up and decide that i need to alter things more. So... on the most part... it takes me about 4-6 hours a hub....
It has been taking me approximately 8 hours per hub, from concept to finish. I might play around a little with it, fine tuning, afterwards but I've found that this is the best way for me to work. I guess I have a little O.C.D. when it comes to working on them ... once I start, I want to complete them so I do the research as I go. I find that this way everything stays fresh. Everyone is different, though.
It depends on the topic. I like to make sure I'm writing quality articles for the public, but some of my top rated hubs took the least amount of time. Which is funny to me, but there you go. If you write on what you know it won't take as long to produce quality hubs, but there is a challenge in writing about things you don't know. I suggest challenging yourself.
If I don't factor in research, the longest I've ever spent working on a hub was three hours. Inserting capsules, writing text, editing, including pictures, etc.
Thanks guys for all the answers. It sounds like we are all pretty much the same when it comes to writing hubs. Some of my hubs take a few hours or a few minutes... a few took a few days.

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?
