How long does it take you to write an 'ible?

I just finished one and it took almost as long as it took to make the superhero cape. I spend forever ordering pictures and being very specific. And I feel like I felt a lot out this time!

It normally takes 1-5 hours for me, I'd say.

So what about you?

My current ible seems to be taking quite a while to write... I can not wait for it to be done!

I felt that way with the plushie! Sometimes both the project and the documentation take FOREVER. I finished a huge one today that took about ten hours. But I'm really sick, so it's not like I can do much else!
And sometimes it seems like there's just so much that you have to remember to put in there, and then it takes even longer because there's always new stuff you can think of having to put in it. I'm making a blanket and that's taking forever, just because my math was off and so I have to cut some stuff smaller -_- I hope you get better soon!

I have spent as little as an 3 hours on one, and as much as 3 days (if the time is all combined) on others. And I don't have that many....
Although I DO have some in the works, that have been there over a year LOL and still not finished

It varies. Physical labour aside, though, I knock most of them out in less than an hour, unless I have a video to add. But then, I've had practice, since I ~~BS for a living~~ am a teacher.

I've never been very good at that BS bit. People keep telling me it's what I should be learning in college, but I've failed to pick up on it.
It does take practice.

When I first joined my school, I had a lot of old-fashioned colleagues, so dictation was often a feature of lessons. Teachers talked. A lot.

I haven't done an actual dictation lesson for about 8 or 9 years now, but I can still talk non-stop for an hour or more, given a vaguely receptive audience and an interesting starting point.

Talking for an hour or more in front of people is terrifying. Talking for an hour to myself is not as bad. But perhaps a little worrying.
