      i have all these ideas, to write hubs, but all these ideas makes me confused,

      try writing your ideas down when you have them carry a note book and a pen, that way you will have a list of things to research and write about, good luck.....jimmy

    Hi JT.

    Your not alone i can assure you. What I do is, I write on seperate a peice of paper or notepad the content for each of my hubs and soon they all come together and then ready for publishing...

    If you can't write them down you can always record them...!!

    I hope your able to get to grips with things soon, and remember, There is no dead line to complete things so try not to worry too much;)

    Write them down, type them down.

    Write, rewrite, edit.

    I use a Palm m515.

    I have that problem a lot when it comes to writting my short stories and poetry. Whenever I think of a phrase or idea, I find anything that I can write on, and write it down. I mean anything- a receipt, clean napkin, scrap paper, coupon, just whatever is in my purse or whatever is closest. I tend to forget the best things, so I write everything down. Even topics to write hubs about. I went to bed last night with three ideas; wrote them all down with bits and pieces I wanted to add, so I'd be sure to remember in the morning.

    I see you've gotten lots of good advice from several hubbers, but since you say you're confused by all your ideas,  I would suggest you try to zero in on one hub at a time. You can jot down your other ideas, briefly, so you can follow up on them later. When you decide on a topic don't try to put it together until you've given it a lot of thought and, if appropriate, have gathered the information you need to make it interesting, thorough and accurate.

    I thought about another thing... Try to categorize your thoughts...

    Write down everything you can, and try to web what goes together. if that makes sense? create an outline of what your thinking. That may help you confusion.

    say your thinking about topic a,b,c,d, and e. but you have tons of little things you're thinking about per each. write down the main topics (a,b,c,d,e) and under each topic try to think of every little detail that's in your head about it. that may help...

    Writers block doesn't exist.  Put it down as if it were a letter to your best friend.  I would do it on the computer, so that all I have to do is cut and paste.  Hit save.  Then edit.

    Sometimes it helps to put down your titles and subtitles first.  But lots of times it's better to just get started writing.  Also, try to write fast so that your conscious mind doesn't sabotage your subconscious mind (which has a lot to say).

    The idea of mind mapping, as Whitney05 suggests, is a great way of brainstorming ideas, really helpful for finding creative inspiration.  I also agree with her, that when a word or phrase comes to you, write it down immediately, any way you can.

    Best of Luck!

      It doesn't exist to the creative and talented. smile

      I've ALWAYS got something to write about. If I hit a temporary pothole, bump or wall I distract myself with another idea and then I come back and it's full speed ahead again.

    I often suffer the same thing.  I have to many ideas and spend too much of my time bouncing around the internet researching my ideas and then don't end up having any time left for writing the actual hubpage.  So I have gone to writing them all down on a sheet of paper.  I have one ideas page where everything goes and then I have another page with immediate hubs I want to create with just a few of the best ideas.  This way my list is not too huge.  I also set a goal for myself like one hub per day for 5 days.  Then I do something else for a little while.

    Just a thought.

    I use a program called Microsoft Office OneNote which came with my new laptop.

    Its like an electronic filing system that is so easy to use.

    You can create a folder for each topic that you are interested in and then add pages within the folders.  I keep it open while I'm surfing the net and if something inspires me I'll start a folder and include a link and notes for me to research later.  Its a great tool to organize scattered thoughts and ideas.  Its better than bits of paper everywhere.

    I also use the word editor to create my final hubpages and blogs.

    Hope this helps.
