    What is your best tip for speeding up your rate of producing a great article?

    Obviously practice makes perfect but, apart from that, what has helped you increase your article production rate?  I have heard some say they can produce a quality article in 30 minutes, including research and SEO.

    Writing what you love. Any topic that I adore and enjoy studying. If I don't like the topic, it can take an hour. However, liking the topic makes it only 20 minutes including research.

      Thanks Ibumaster
      An hour is still very fast compared to myself so well done you.

      But also consider that the best articles, turn out to be flimsy ideas that you never thought individuals would care about.

    Write what you know.  Even better, write about something you know and already have some related photos available.

    And after those half dozen articles, accept that a really great article probably doesn't happen in half an hour. 

    If you write related articles then you could get more juice out of your research time.  Say you spent a couple hours on SEO - checking out your potential keywords and came up with a dozen potential articles.  Another hour or two researching the topic.  And THEN you could kick out several articles at the rate of half an hour each (then divide your extra research time by all the articles and it might not seem like so much on average.)

    Still, I don't believe a 30 minute article will ever get a "10" from me when I'm hopping hubs.

      Relating articles sounds like sound advice - after extensive research it is likely there will be more than enough ammunition for multiple articles. Indeed this happened to me recently when I originally intended to write 1 article but did 5. Thanks WP

    I do not think there are any real tips. People write in different ways. Some create outlines, do a rough handwritten draft and the type and will go over it a half dozen times.

    I get an idea and i start typing. If I come to a point where I need more information, I look it up and then start typing again. I have never spent more than two hours writing a hub.

    The hubs I write are based on personal experiences, things I learned as a reporter and PR person and things that interest me. A lot of my hubs are written as a column would be written therefore it allows me a little more freedom.

    Each person has to find his own pace. As you do that, your speed will probably increase.

      Yes, everybody's different.  No doubt your background stood you in good stead for internet article writing.  Many thanks for your input.
