Some of Today's Sexiest Writers are on HubPages
Some of today's sexiest writers are right here on HubPages.
No, I'm not talking about nubile bodies scantily clad on sandy beaches.
What I'm suggesting instead is an alternative perspective that embraces people of all shapes and sizes and from every walk of life.
A beautiful mind is the most significant sex organ that a human being possesses.
With that as a premise, here is your invitation to consider the various aspects of the innovative writing we encounter on HubPages that showcase some of the world's sexiest people.
billybuc is Attentive
- The Ten Second Rule of Writing
If you don't have a hook at the very beginning of your work, you will most likely lose your reader. If you needs examples, here are seven different types of hooks.
Sexy Writers are Attentive
One of the most attentive writers I have encountered here on HubPages happens to be a fellow resident of The Evergreen State. It's not his locale, however, but rather his superb attentiveness that makes him a very sexy writer. His HP name is billybuc.
In his writing of each and every article, billybuc strictly adheres to the lesson he repeatedly passes on to his proteges--the 10 second rule--except he's harder on himself, cutting the required time with which he is self-mandated to capture a reader's interest in half. How does he do this? By having done his homework hours, days, weeks, months, and--yes--sometimes even years before the article in question was ever written.
This writer pays attention to his environment. He does a tremendous amount of research. He is well-read, avidly devouring classic literature, contemporary novels, instructional writing and inspirational books, as well as the scores of hubs written by peers.
He is attentive to detail. He is attentive to his writing regimen. He is attentive to his targeted audience. He is attentive to the significance of empathy, compassion, and love as driving forces for memorable writing. Like a veteran major league pitcher, he is attentive to his own as well as others' weaknesses and strengths and is thus able to paint the corners with his prolific writing, throwing strikes every time he delivers.
Finally, he is attentive to his fans. He may have thousands of people commenting on his daily hubs each week, but he makes it a point to attentively respond to each and every message.
Key to connecting with another human being is this concept of attentiveness. billybuc is very attentive. billybuc is an engagingly sexy writer.
Radcliff is Passionate
- Writing for HubPages: 5 Reasons Why Your Hub is Idle
Many Hubbers get frustrated when their articles go Idle rather than Featured. There are several reasons why this happens, but some easy solutions may help to get your articles back to Featured.
Sexy Writers are Passionate
One of my favorite Hub niches is eBay. Often, I will invite my readers--whether veterans, newbies, or those who have yet to take their shoes off and go wading in the eBay waters--for questions and comments about selling on this global marketplace.
From the west coast of Florida, just about as far away on the contiguous USA that one can get from where I live in the Pacific Northwest, comes the passionate response to my RSVP in the form of Radcliff, the HubPages persona of Liz Davis.
Radcliff inspires me with her enthusiastic inquiries and feedback about eBay. In similar fashion, she wields this hurricane energy in her writing, leaving her readers feeling pumped and eager to tackle life head-on!
Imagine, if you will, HubPages personified as a dowdy professor, one who's been teaching his craft for several decades. When you teach the same thing day in and day out, year after year, the very thing you once were crazy about now finds you stiff, boring, and unenthused. Staying with this analogy, think of that one student who enrolls in the class and turns it upside down because she's unconcerned with social convention and isn't intimidated by anyone's distinguished bearing. She'd just as soon kick deference to the curb and confront the awkward silence by stating the obvious: There's a freakin' white elephant in the room!
Radcliff will do that. She's so passionate about life, about her loved ones, about her writing, that she's got neither the patience nor the time to waste putting a Band-Aid on your owie. Your views going down? Quit whining, and write better! Not making enough money on HP and thinking about going somewhere else? Bye, I'll miss you...NOT!
Survival of the fittest is a reality. It's especially true in the field of writing. If you persevere and gut it out, Radcliff will be your staunchest ally. Why? Because she's passionate about passion itself. She instinctively knows who has it. Passion is her literary pheromone, and she gives and receives in equal measure. It's a principal reason why Radcliff is a bodaciously sexy writer.
Arun Kanti is Confident
- SONA UNCLE AND THE CHARM OF REAL INDIA
A real life story of a selfless bachelor charmed by the rustic life sacrifices his own comforts frittering away savings for the poor and destitute
Sexy Writers are Confident
Arun Kanti Chatterjee employs the first two-thirds of his name for his HubPages handle. I daresay before too long, Arun Kanti will be a familiar name on the HubPages circuit. In the short seven months that he has been a member of this esteemed literary community, he has definitely made a positive difference.
HubPages was created by an American brain trust of gifted writers, but its real success is due in large part to its global reach.
As an American, I am very proud of my country and, in a soft-spoken yet effective manner, I have patriotically advocated its merits.
As an impressionist writer, however, I am not blind to this country's faults. I don't belong to that inner circle of ethnocentric people who arrogantly point an accusing finger towards the other side of the globe and say, "That's where evil exists." America the Beautiful rises above that asinine way of thinking. My version of My Country 'Tis of Thee embraces all races and all cultures as the family of man.
To that end, I want to build bridges between the gifted writers of the world.
Which is precisely why I chose Arun Kanti to exemplify the mark of a confident writer.
A relative newbie to the world of writing, never mind an exciting opportunity to write for HubPages, Arun Kanti--full of insecurities, no doubt--still had unbridled confidence in The American Dream and decided to take a chance. We who are gifted with his excellent personal essays are the blessed recipients of his fated and timely choice.
Friends, I am no prognosticator, but I will go out on a limb to say that if we follow this writer's progression over time, we are in store for some epic reads. (Think Kipling! Think Conrad!)
His very first hub, entitled Sona Uncle and the Charm of Real India, quickly gleaned over 1000 views, an amazing statistic for an international contributor.
Arun Kanti is a humble man. From that gentle and unassuming origin have been birthed the world's most memorable literary creations.
Daily, we see the metamorphosis. Arun Kanti is more positive. Arun Kanti is more self-assured. Arun Kanit is a more confidently sexy writer.
mommymay Loves to Experiment
- My Ebay Challenge - From the Roadside to PROFIT (I h...
So...you are wandering down the road and stumble upon MONEY. Maybe not traditional money but junk that can become treasure. Follow my junk as it goes from the roadside to cash in my pocket!
Sexy Writers Love to Experiment
I'm not proud to admit this, but I have contributed to the juvenile regression of a fellow HubPages writer. Her name is Heather May, and after our joint wacky eBay roadside venture, she may have gone incognito. Even so, for the sake of this article, she deserves special props for being a great sport. Ladies and gentlemen of the literary arena, I'd like you to meet a very talented writer (her association with moi notwithstanding)--mommymay.
Keeping in mind that it's Hawaiian Odysseus and not Hawaiian Oedipus, my fascination with mommymay is based on her willingness, iron resolve, and flexibility in tackling any silly subject head-on! And if that's not enough--much to the chagrin of her bewildered hubby, a man identifiable even in a crowd by his propensity for shaking his head a lot--this real life mother of five youngsters will audaciously write about it.
My Cal Poly Dad cap's off--but tightly clenched to my chest because the last thing I want is to see it in mommymay's eBay store--to this determined and energetic woman who effectively manages a successful home business, sells part-time on eBay, is an accomplished writer on HubPages and elsewhere, and juggles all of this while being a full-time wife and mom.
Quirkiness and kookiness have their rightful places on this woman's road to success. To that end, mommymay is a brilliant whack job. She also happens to be an experimentally sexy writer.
Sexy Writers Take Chances
His name is Jim Higgins, and we know and love him in our literary community as xstatic.
A lovely walk through his garden of delightful hubs soon reveals a senior gentleman who revels in exploring new and unique pursuits in the glorious autumn of his life. While casually touching upon minimal anxiety prior to and during his adventurous pursuits, his readers are soon ensconced in his mature and calm approach to novel situations.
Young and old alike certainly appreciate the bucket list approach to living meaningfully. Reading xstatic's hubs is parallel to attending a black and white movie whose only color is provided by the deeply resonant voice-over of its narrator. Yes, in case you were wondering, xstatic's been there and done that!
xstatic's penchant for taking chances has netted him a role as a small town lawman, Sheriff Dan, in a short film soon to be released entitled, Never Gonna Break. At the time of this writing, xstatic just discovered that he was awarded the role of a doctor in an upcoming feature length movie.
Taking healthy risks is a universally attractive quality. It's definitely a characteristic that makes xstatic a daredevilish sexy writer.

CrisSp Loves to Have Fun
- Finding A Muse - A Starbucks Experience
One of the most important parts of our creative process is finding a muse in our everyday lives. Today, I found mine at Starbucks (inside Chapters Bookstore). You? Where do you find your muse?
Sexy Writers Love to Have Fun
Flying high might very well be an integral part of her profession, but in her love affair with writing, CrisSp is oxymoronically well grounded in airy pursuits.
Reading her beautiful portfolio of prose and poetry is akin to walking on the clouds. CrisSp holds your hand and guides you among the pillowed formations of cumulonimbus, playing hide and seek among the heavenly sheared wool. She is so young at heart that you pause in your play with her as you ponder, Maybe I should ID her?
And then you remind yourself that this is just a daydream. (And, if you're male, you get to exhale at this point. I always do.)
That's the nature of CrisSp's writing. On the back burner, you remind yourself that she diligently crafts her creative endeavors inflight, sometimes at altitudes above the 8-mile mark, as well as during her off hours, back on terra firma. But you never know the specific altitude of each hub because every one of them is written with an ethereal voice.
Plainly speaking, CrisSp loves to have fun. And it is that quality that entitles her to be dubbed a celestially sexy writer.
mercuryservices is Unpredictable
- Five Dumb Ideas for Buying a New Watch
If you're in the market for buying a new watch, here are five stupid pieces of advice that you probably shouldn't take into consideration at all. As a matter of fact, don't even read this article.
Sexy Writers are Unpredictable
Changeable, like a chameleon. Animated, like a nostalgic Saturday morning cartoon. Somewhat erratic, like a lightning bolt. Quick-witted, like a cross between Robin Williams and Robert Downey, Jr. Lively, like a macaque on ten shots of espresso.
I've just defined one of the most brilliant and refreshingly mercurial (Ah, yes! That's the word I was looking for!) up and coming writers rascally peeking over the HubPages horizon.
Friends, meet Alex Muncaksy, aka mercuryservices, currently living large and raising hell in 5-0 Paradise.
Reading this writer's work, you'll soon find that his style and voice are a radical departure from the trademarks of writers you're accustomed to on HubPages. How can I best describe it? Here's an attempt. Remember the first time you ever watched a mixed martial arts fight? There's this conventional side of you that says: Shoot, this isn't boxing. It's a brawl! But then there's this other side of you--a primal throwback to the memory of that first punch that ever landed on your face--that compels you to keep watching...and then, before you know it, you're hooked! And then you're squabbling with your better half as to why watching this makes better sense than suffering through another stinkin' episode of Dance Moms!
That's my best shot at describing someone who's very difficult to pin down because he's all over the radar screen. Which is precisely what sets him apart as unique, refreshing, and a captivating read! I challenge you to fit him neatly and nicely into a profiled box. I betcha you can't! But don't let me waste any more of your time. Go see for yourself!
mercuryservices is nonconformist. mercuryservices is off the charts. mercuryservices is an unpredictably sexy writer.
Nellieanna is Young at Heart
Sexy Writers are Young at Heart
In 1987, at the age of 35, I entered the 7.5 mile Bloomsday Run in Spokane, Washington. In a field of 51,000 runners, I was fortunately able to finish in the top 4% of the field. An event happened on my ascension to the top of a quarter-mile long hill that appeared to have a slope of roughly 30 - 40 degrees. I thought I had trained appropriately for this race, but I struggled immensely going up that hill. Just about the time I was ready to give up and start walking, a little old lady--probably somewhere in her late sixties--came zipping up the hill on my right, leaving me in the wake of her dust. Somehow, that was incentive enough to keep me going. And forever humbled about my running.
I'm reminded of that incident every time I indulge in the ethereal writing of Nellieanna Hay, a prolific and accomplished writer from The Lone Star State.
Have you read her wonderful work?
You really should, you know. Borrowing from Hollywood, Nellieanna is a cross between the talented grasp of Lauren Bacall and the quintessential beauty of Audrey Hepburn--oh, and with a bit of Bette Davis' flirtatious sassiness thrown in.
The stylish flair with which she weaves her Hub web--because, once attached, it's hard to break away--leaves one wondering, surely, someone much younger is writing this and using their beloved and beautiful grandmother's picture for a profile photo.
Such is the nature of Nellieanna's youthful writing. It dashes all notions that talented writing is reserved only for the young and middle-aged. It is the greatest assurance to--and I use this term with only the utmost respect and deference--the geriatric population at large that the dreaded adversaries of senility and Alzheimer's need not rule the long shadows of the afternoon! I express this from the very core of my being, having married into a family where two prior generations of women have suffered and died in the cruel clutches of Alzheimer's and where a certain dread casts its weight over my marriage.
God bless Nellieanna. She gives me hope that transcends and lingers long after the written page is absorbed. She is proof here on earth that mankind has only begun to scratch the surface of the tremendous literary oil fields that yet lie untapped in the bosoms of our elders.
In Texas, Nellieanna's geyser has erupted, her black gold perpetually and eloquently flowing. Nellieanna is ageless. Nellieanna is timeless. Nellieanna is an endlessly sexy writer.
bdegiulio Has Endurance
- 5 Weeks to Your First 5K
Looking to get off the couch and get some exercise? Thinking about running a 5K? This five week training plan will get you from the couch to the finish line of your first 5K. Designed for the beginning runner, this program gradually takes you from yo
Sexy Writers Have Endurance
Some travel writers, as I've recently learned from a prestigious writer peer, pen their articles from the comfort of their office and by having done voluminous research.
Such is not the case with Bill De Giulio, aka bdegiulio, whose forte on HubPages happens to be the travel niche.
Bill's last name is a great clue as to his favorite points of destination--the cities of Italia! With each hub that he writes about Rome, Sicily, Venice, and other classic Mediterranean locales, bdegiulio's innate knack for ever being the gracious and hospitable tour guide as well as the magnificent images that complement his articles leave us breathtakingly cognizant that we have just experienced--firsthand--the trip of a lifetime.
Close cousins to the travel niche are bdegiulio's inclusion of birds of prey and running as topics he loves to write about.
Majestic avians suggest associated thoughts about flight, endangered species, and--generally--empathetic reflections that move us, hopefully, to other-centered behavior as we realize that our feathered or furry cohabitants have as much right to be here on Mother Earth as we do.
In a very humble and low key way, bdegiulio also shares with us his love for running. He is on the north side of half a century but has the heart of a youngster--literally and figuratively--because he not only is in great shape but also offers helpful advice about running. For example, in one of his hubs, bdegiulio presented older runners with a proven schedule for training to run...or at least finish...a 5K race in five weeks.
Weaving this all together, we have in bdegiulio a writer who has a refreshingly well-grounded approach to life. His writer's voice is that of Everyman in discovery of things, places, and people outside of himself. This talented and hard-working writer has a genuine love for life, family, and this grand old spinning marble called Earth. bdegiulio is in this for the long run. bdegiulio is committed to going the distance. bdegiulio is an enduringly sexy writer.
Simone Haruko Smith Leaves Us Wanting More
- Why Am I So Ugly? Because Ugliness Has Major Perks
Do you wish you were more attractive? Be careful what you wish for. If you haven't realized yet that beauty has some major drawbacks, come a little closer. We need to have a chat.
Sexy Writers Leave You Wanting More
Ever finish reading a hub only to regret that it ended? You come away from the experience having gained something warm and exhilarating, and yet you are left with this lingering sense of: I definitely want to read more of this person's writing!
The eclectic articles and videos of Simone (Haruko) Smith have that effect on a lot of people.
Several months ago, I came across one of her videos on YouTube and was simply mesmerized by her quirky yet brilliant sense of humor and delivery.
Later, I discovered that Simone was actually a writer on HubPages. And if that weren't enough, she also happened to be a staff member for this esteemed literary site, serving as Community and Marketing Manager.
Recently, I had the honor of being interviewed one week by tillsontitan and then the pleasure of interviewing Karen Hellier the following week for the HubPages Weekly. During both endeavors, I received encouraging email messages from Simone and was very impressed with her proactive and personable communication.
One has to wonder how Ms. Smith finds the time and energy to write, create videos, administrate, and communicate to a degree par excellence.
The answer is obvious.
Simone Smith is attentive. She's passionate. She's confident. She loves to experiment. She takes chances. She loves to have fun. She's unpredictable. She's young at heart. She has endurance.
And there's one more thing.
Recently, Simone Smith announced that she will soon be leaving HubPages. She will be launching her own business--a training center for online careers called Gigaverse that is projected to kick off this summer.
We will definitely miss Simone Haruko Smith and wish her the very best in her new venture. Her departure from HubPages underscores a final point. Simone Smith leaves us wanting more, and that's what makes her an incredibly sexy writer.
