How long does it usually take you to write a 500 word essay?

QUESTION
How long does it usually take you to write a 500 word essay?
For me, it takes about 2 hours because of the researching and proof-reading. Is that considered normal?

ANSWER
1 hour is exam speed – closed book – you would train for a year to do that, in the last two years of high school

you can’t research and write a good 500 word essay in two hours unless you plagarise – or are a trained writer, or already know the topic

i would say it is highly irregular

oh for me – it would take anything from one hour to 8 – depending on the question and its complexity

it takes me a day to prep a 3 hour lecture- which is about 500 words of shorthand – without the notes/resources for students, that takes extra time
