I've finally stumbled on free time now that I'm on spring break, lol. I was afraid I might not ever come back to HubPages, what with all of my exams from last week! If you get a chance and are interested, please check out my latest hub. Constructive criticism, as always, is very welcome!
I want some of what you're smoking.
Seriously, I didn't get it. At all. But that's just me. It's really well-written, though.
The first paragraph really threw me off. You pretty much spent the whole paragraph telling people that, despite the fact that you're not a professional writer, they should not only read what you've written here, but also go back and read prior work. I mean, the way you set it up, why should I listen to you (hypothetically speaking...)?
Gotta agree with Irohner...
Very well written. But, I would change that intro. It doesn't add anything to the overall piece but extra text. I like the idea of a short intro to your piece but I would say something about how reading (since that's the basis of the entire piece) relates to building writing skills.
Also, I would break up that text. Add some subheadings, maybe a picture or two. And if you want readers to find your first part, link to it within your hub.
Lol, I understand what you guys are saying... What I was trying to do was make this hub a 2nd part, stemming off of my first hub, but I didn't want to keep the same title as the first hub and just call it "Part 2." So, I thought if I briefly mentioned my 1st hub in the intro, I could accomplish that... but then, I didn't want people to think they HAD to read my 1st hub in order to "get" my 2nd hub, if you know what I mean.
I guess I'm just all-around being a bit confusing =/
I decided to completely remove the mentioning of my 1st hub in this hub. I think they each should stand on their own. I broke up the article with subheadings, but I'm not sure I want pictures in this one. Call me weird, but I'm not a huge fan of pictures in a lot of articles. I know a lot of people appreciate them because they break up the monotony of text, but sometimes, I just like to write (and read) things without pictures.
I do think taking out my intro focused my article better. I appreciate your insight on the beginning .
Thank you for your feedback!

What part of writing your Hub do you find the most difficult? Or any type of article for that matter?The intro has-is-and will be the hardest part for me personally. It shouldn't be, but this is the part that I have...

It has been such a fun exercise to participate in Hubpages author Annart's shorty story challenge. She posted a picture of her own painting and asked everyone to write a story from it. It has been amazing to...

I am just starting out on Hubpages and my first article was unpublished within a day, but looking at it I didn't understand why. I edited it, expanded it, and republished it, and I was wondering (if you have some spare...
