5 hrs
(writing) composition


Explanation:
is the usual term for this in US English. I looked it up in Muret-Sanders
and under composition I found:
1. Textzusammensetzung, Abfassung, Schriftstueck, Verfassung (Schrift etc.), and much more
The literal translation would be text
formularization, which I have never heard of, or formulation of text, which again I found in Muret-Sanders under
"Textabfassung."
