Anyone Up For An "Instant" Hub Challenge?

  1. Cagsil profile image61
    Cagsilposted 6 years ago

    Hey Hub Writers,

    Are you up for an INSTANT Hub Challenge?

    Think you can write one hub inside 30 minutes.

    Give it a shot?

    Qualify-
    (a) hub must be quality - 600+ words or more
    (b) can be on any topic you choose
    (c) post when done

    After the Challenge is over and hubs are written, I'll be glad to read each and post a comment. So, at least one person will have read it. wink

    Think you're up for it? hmm

    Come, join in and give it a shot! smile big_smile

      Cagsil, my hubs are long works of art, developed through a process consisting of, but not limited to: research, introspection, review, editing, elaboration and reflection.  They are not the product of spur of the moment 'challenges' or games. 

      Did someone ever ask Shakespeare to come up with a play in 5 minutes?  Did someone ever challenge Da Vinci to draw a picture of that Mona Lisa chick in a few seconds?

        And your reason for posting was to tell me that, when it was not actually necessary for you to say anything???

        You seem like you are above such things and that is a little disappointing, but if that is the way you see it, so be it.

        Have a great day! wink

      why does 600 words = quality?

      oh wait, did you mean quality AND 600 words? oh boy...I'll just read everybody elses. Good idea Cags.  smile

      1. Cagsil profile image61
        Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Hey Justine, believe it or not, a quality hub is detailed and a minimum of 400-600, but to be effective 600+ is better.

        So, I set the standard for the Challenge, as I have learned what that standard is truly.

        You are more than welcome to take part or even read those that do take part. The choice is ultimately yours. smile

          Justine76posted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I'll read, I really don't think I can type 600 (legiable)words that fast. Plus I would have to keep going back and counting and I am not so good at that either. No way. And I am not being arguementative. I just have read quailty things in my life that are far less then 600 words. But I suppose your talking hupages stuff, not poetry?

          clearly you can set any standard you wish, that isn't what I meant. I just honestly didn't know the 600 word thing.  smile I hope people do it, sounds cool.

      Well, that would be a little difficult Izzy, because there is just so much we can write about, because there is truly so much wrong in this world today and seems like many people are clueless.

      However, maybe you can write about the cluelessness of people nowadays. wink

    1. Cagsil profile image61
      Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Welcome to HubPages! However, I am not sure if you'll be able to put out, what is asked for?

      You're new and I am not even sure if you read the Opening Post? If you want to try, then by all means. Good luck, but it might help you, if you learned how to write a hub, before entering into a challenge of the sort.

      Just a helpful piece of advice. smile

      1. prey profile image79
        preyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        thank you I shall keep reading rather, and finish my hb.  I apologize for the misunderstanding.  Luck to all,

        1. Cagsil profile image61
          Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          There wasn't a misunderstanding at all. It might be nicer and easier for you to learn more about HubPages, before trying to a challenge of this sort.

          There is one person who took part in the Challenge earlier today, and has yet to finish the hub, so that is my point. The Hub Writer already knows their way around hubs and writing them, and they did not finish.

          That's all. It isn't anything against you. Like I said, you want to try, then by all means, do so.

      Maybe, if I am in a writing mood, I'll start another around midnight or 12:30am. lol
