Writing 50,000 words in two weeks with research...
...crazy - don't take on the project
...possible - better get the coffee I.V.
...pshaw - it's a breeze - what are you worried about?
Thoughts, opinions, experiences are appreciated
Typing 50,000 words is easy. Determining what to write is the hard part. I've done tons of research back on my college days and one tip I can share is organization. Focus on doing things one at a time. Set achievable goals and be sure not to waste a day. Good luck!
Ouch!! I write for a living, and that would fry me. It's definitely possible, and I'm probably one of those people who'd be nuts enough to take it, but....man, a comatose period afterward would certainly be in order.
I have experience with doing 30,000-35,000 word business guides for different websites. Depending on the amount of research and the subject I push for about 1,000 words an hour. That being said it depends on what you are writing about. When I was doing the business guides, they generally were are under the same topics as previous guides, and a lot of my time was rewriting content that I already wrote (to make it unique). In those cases I could work a lot quicker.
As far as taken on the project, what you are getting paid for the project could be a big factor. You have to figure out how much you want to earn per hour. Then you need to estimate how many hours it will take you to complete the project (unless you are getting paid by the hour). If it works out to be a decent hourly rate and your circumstances allow, then you might choose to take it.

what factors help you decide if a hub is too long? I know different styles of hubs based on topics and what not help determine how long it is going to be. I worry about what is to many words though.
