30 Hubs In 30 Days, Can I Do It?

Updated on December 22, 2010
I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can!
I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can!

I Think I Can.

Okay, so I am always up for a challenge, although this feels a little like a bad poker hand that I am trying to bluff my way down the river with. One topic alone can have me working on it for 30 days, but I'm crazy enough to take the challenge and hopefully I will gain something exciting along the way.

HubPages has been a wonderful outlet for me, this place has given me the stage, now all I have to do is perform. My problem is not having enough confidence in my work . Don't get me wrong, I do consider myself as being a moderately confident person, just don't challenge me to walk down the street naked. I would confidently decline that challenge, just the sheer thought of it makes me want to reinstate my gym membership. I can be very hard on my writing though, trying to make sure that every point that I'm trying to make comes across exactly the way that I want it too. So hopefully this 30 hubs in 30 days can give me that focus, that drive and that confidence that I need to become a better writer.

I am taking on this challenge, not to prove to others that I am a writer, but to prove this to my biggest critic of all, Myself.

Here is a poem I wrote a while back:

I come from a town, way down south,

I put pen to paper, to keep from running my mouth.

My thoughts are happy, no time for sad ones,

I've had enough bad times, now those days are gone.

Whenever I feel low, I just write myself a letter,

and it reads; What's up girl, take a hold of this ladder.

Pull yourself up, and take slower pitter patters,

if you move too fast, things around you won't matter.

Grab that pen, grab that paper and X out the bad,

write a whole new life to escape to when you're sad.

I can take myself anywhere, my mind sees fit,

I can be in the highest of penthouses, or stuck in a ditch.

I can sip Dom P and mingle with the rich,

or I can have a pimp, turn tricks and get my butt kicked

It doesn't matter where I go, or how long it will take,

this world is too big for me not to get my piece of the cake.

I'm hungry too, when it comes to my life,

I refuse to sit back and just let it pass me by.

When my words hit that paper, I feel like I can fly,

No drug in this world can get me that high.

I'm a writer, I know this now and I'm glad I found out,

I will be the best at what I do, for this is my vow.

Topics For The 30 Hubs In 30 Days Challenge

Right now, I have none. But check back often and see what I have come up with. The topics that I have been pondering over will take me out of the relationship realm, where I have so comfortably set up shop. I will be venturing out and tackling some other subject matters that is sure to enhance my writing capabilities.

Wish me luck and I will update this hub weekly, so that I can help other moderately confident people, become overly confident in what they are writing. Let's Do this! Oh yeah,in case you didn't know, this is my first hub of the challenge. Wow that was easy, 29 more to go baby, Yeah!

I Ran Out Of Steam

Okay so after I decided to join the 30 in 30 challenge, I was ready, I mean READY! I tried but I failed miserably, I haven't given up though. If I reach 30 hubs period, I'm a happy girl. So I'm moving forward and continuing to write, I just have to do it at my own pace. Thanks so much to all of my supporters, who sent me encouraging words, it's just that time was not on my side. Good luck to everyone else who attempts this challenge and congrats to those who've completed it.
