An "Instant" Hub Challenge... Up For It?

    Hey Hubbers,

    Who is up for an INSTANT Hub Challenge?

    (a) write a hub in 30 minutes
    (b) write 600+ words or more
    (c) publish in under 30 minutes

    That's it.

    After each hub is publish, each will be read and commented on, so that you have at least one reader and comment, to start off.

    *it is pretty sure that the participants will also read your hub and possibly comment* I would rather not speak for others, but that is what has happened when playing the challenge.

    You get a freshly created hub and multiple comments.

    You might even get an adrenaline rush from the creative flow of juices and pure conscious thought that runs over you.

    Even if you do not accomplish, at least you tried it. smile

    Come join. smile

    Well ok, but we need more participants. Where are they all? Maybe they're scared of the 30 minute challenge.

    NB - was that word count requirement there last round?

    I have tea + toast + sleep deprivation.

    All set

      Well, I have done one challenge with a few others and that was the writing goal I set, because a "quality" hub as minimum 600 words, at the very least.

      Usually, a "quality" hub is about 800-1500+ words, depending on content. lol

      So, a few hundred words less, should make 30 minute challenge more interesting.

      I too have my coffee and waiting for takers. smile lol cool

    We're heading to breakfast in fifteen or twenty, or might have jumped on this.  I have a little rant about McDonalds I could go on.  <sigh>  Oh well.

    And, no, Audrevea, I didn't have a word count in the one we did a few weeks back if that's the one you're asking about.  I think there's enough pressure just to do it, much less count words.  But, having one does add an extra edge, I'm sure.

    Have fun u two. 

    Cag's one of these days, our timing will be on again.

      Hey Shadesbreath,

      Well, I guess in order for that to make happen, then I guess you'll have to start another one of these threads.

      The next one you start, regardless of whether or not, I am in the mood to write, I'll take part anyways.

      I had one challenge recently with a few members and wrote a hub, and 15 minutes in, I scrapped the hub and started over.

      I did not complete in 30 minutes, I was 5 or 10 minutes over. yikes wink

        I checked - the last one I came out at 775 ( so I passed!).

        Cags, I don't think we have enough takers. The forums have gone so quiet lately.

          Glad to hear on the 775 word count on last hub. My word count was somewhere about 735. So I qualified too. lol lol

          Yeah, the forums have been slowed. There is a reason for it, but too many factors to list. wink

            We should Hub-SEO this thread and call it 'ten reasons why the Bible was actually written in Atlantis'

            ... because we know what sells on HP forums
