As many as I can get away with! In all seriousness, it really depends on what's out there to write. I usually find assignments to do rather than writing something and trying to sell it. So, I check around at the different places I work at to see if there's anything interesting, easy or high paying for the work involved.
Since I can't give you a solid number of articles, I would wager that I write somewhere between 1,500 and 2,000 words per day on average. The amount per word is impossible to determine since the pay rates are quite varied depending on which site I'm writing for.
I agree with Bonny that it has more to do with word count than number of articles. I also average 1,500-2,000 words per day.
I go by word also. I try to write at least 3,000 Monday through Friday but that's not all articles. Sometimes it's a poem, a journal entry, part of a novel or short story or something for school.
It varies, but as an average I write five or six articles (3k to 6k words) a day. The client for which I am currently writing, about a two week job, gets at least 4k words (in 5 articles) a day out of my little fingers. Thank goodness I type like a demon! I prefer to work for larger companies, as they often have longer term assignments and pay a little more per word.
I've been writing two or three a day lately. I guess in my case, the question should be how many articles do I write as an unemployed writer.
I was making big money on freelance writing, you can bet I'd be doing it all day.
I find myself writing anywhere from 4000 to 6000 words a day but extra time is taken for research so it's a long day and very draining. That's the price you pay for pumping out good content and a lot of it.
To help speed up the process get dragon naturally speaking - speech to text program.. It takes a little getting used to but works well once you get the hang of it.
I write 3-5 articles per day, depending on my mood. Each article runs from 500 words to 700 words.
Right after chores around the apartment. I start writing, I loose count. Sometimes, if they are short like this one, about 25 a day, uninterrupted. When I can get my printer, I will be able to do even more and write my first 'content feature on hubs'!
I am for at least one article a day submitted or uploaded somewhere, not all on Hubpages.
One. That includes all the research and drafting (don't take too long with your first draft; it's just a draft) and a bit more shaping then a few hours away from it to re-read it with fresh eyes, re-check my facts, and give it a final edit. The time away from the writing brings in new ideas that can enhance the article. This way I make a living by writing four articles per week of about 1000-1500 words each.
I also put a good title on it and good subheadings, and this helps sell the article because people prefer to digest information in shorter "chunks" these days.
I might add that I have 35 years of experience doing this. The more you do it the better you'll get. They say "Only the first million words are hard."
