Who is UP for a challenge?

    Hey Hubberville,

    It's been awhile since I have done a INSTANT Hub Challenge.

    What is a Instant Hub Challenge? Well, it's creating a hub, by consciously writing it within a specific time frame. You instantly create a hub, on a 30 minute timer.

    After which, I'll read and comment on. You get a brand new hub(edits come later- the object is to create fluid writing for 30 minutes and then hit publish).

    The time to begin will start when I say go. At the posting of this thread- the start time will be 7:45pm(EST).

    I would like to have 5 writers total to execute the challenge. Do remember, the advantage here is to get a new hub and exposure at the same time. When you post your hub- the FEED receives it and everyone else gets to see it.

    When multiple people post hubs at the same time- it draws attention. I know from past experience in doing these.

    Besides, to create a consciously written hub is invigorating. The object is to write and hit publish in 30 minutes.

    So, if you're UP for it- sign up by agreeing. smile You can post your hub to this thread, so other participants can read it.

    Come try?

    Whatcha gonna do if 5 writers don't bite? Give it more time? This is such a fun concept. I've never tried it before.

      Yes, more time. Now, I shall go to 8:00pm as a start time.

      There doesn't seem to be too many people on right now. smile So, I'm going to wait a little longer. smile

    You're welcome Becca. And the challenge was a pleasure. Too bad, Shadesbreath is bounding around somewhere else.

    He was the one who got me started on "Instant" hub challenges. smile
