    Hello everyone! smile

    This article of mine is said to have quality by the editor who reviewed it but isn't upto the standards yet. So it is placed in the editing queue (which is fairly long). The editor asks me to either wait for the hub to be edited by them or edit it myself.

    It would be helpful if you could point out what mistakes I have made in this hub of mine. Thank you! Here's the link:

      Hi, starting from the heading, there should be a gap between Kuwait and the hyphen. Same goes for the next subheading, Camel...

      How about adding a short intro?

      Next, in this sentence 'Kuwait is a country devoid of trees (except palms).' A better way of putting it would be 'Kuwait is a country which is...'

      There seem to be many such small errors. I would suggest you get this article checked by a proofreader, it would definitely help improve errors.

      Hope I have been helpful...

        "Kuwait is a country devoid of trees (except palms)" - that is not an error.  It is perfectly good grammar.

    Sakina, I'd say your problem with this Hub is focus.  The heading refers to history, but your introduction talks about the living conditions. 

    I would start with a map showing the location of Kuwait,then an introductory paragraph something like, "Kuwait is an Arab country on the Persian Gulf.  While there is evidence of habitation going back to 8,000 BC, modern Kuwait was founded by the Bedouins."

    Then continue with your "Brief History of the Bedouins", but do not number the paragraphs, it's not necessary.
