    Just wondering if anyone else has a great way to get hub ideas. My inspiration is going to start coming from a friends vast collection of magazines. They can potentially give me thousands of topic ideas.

      Well, there is the usual "go to's": your passions, personal experiences and the like. I'm not sure some folks would be willing to give up their sources, tho. I have been making a list of article ideas, and sometimes they come from something I've seen in a movie or heard in a song. Just gotta let your mind flow, ya know?

        I also keep a tiny notebook with me wherever I go. Ideas can just come out of no where and it helps to write them down ASAP.

      Well, I am looking to share knowledge so usually I try to remember what were the first, or second things I needed to learn in the IT field.
      But what ultimately helps me break through writer's block is just... writing!

      Back in school when I was visiting art classes, I learned that the easiest way to increase my flow of ideas for paintings is to draw. You'll start of with a line, but then one or two ideas will pop up in your head what to add to the line.

      So, sit down and tell the blank white screen what was your most recent achievement, or how you tackled and issue at home, work or school. This should start you off smile

    I also have a little black notebook where I write down every potential topics that come to my mind. In addition I have lots of email forwarded to me, some of which are HP potentials.  I have topics lining up for my hubs.

      I'm new to hubs.  My ideas come from every day experiences, dreams, visions and the things that I often think about, wonder about, love, have a passion for and enjoy learning and reading about.  I have young grand children and often times I worry about them living in this world that can sometimes be a little over the top.  I write about those worries too.  Being a writer, I often get writers block.  It's a normal thing.  But know that as long as you live in this world and notice the people and things around you, there is much to write about.  Good luck, and peace to you.

    Primarily from actual insight, from out of nowhere, and careful examination. Though lately I'm trying different things not along those lines at all. For practical reasons.

    Sometimes it's just an idea I get before falling asleep or I read something new and interesting but can't find a decent article about it...

    In relationship, I draw my inspiration from the movie "Titanic" I want to have a love like them. For me they are the best example of a lover who loves truly.
    In school, I draw my inspiration to my family and real friends who trust and believe in me.
    In life, God is the person whom I draw my inspiration

    My inspiration comes from a place within me that I can only reach through my writing. It does not make itself known until it's time to sit down and pour out.

    Usually, I listen to moving music and that sends me into a place from which I can leap, creatively. I think it is the same place in all of us, or at least the same feeling. It may live in different parts of us, but I am sure we pull from the same source.

    Some call it God, some call it vision, some call it dreams. To lure it out, some use magazines, some use music and some use experience.

    It's a beautiful thing, no matter the source.

    My inspiration comes from my luchador mask and $5 poncho.

    Truly successful writers find more inspiration than they have time to put to paper.  There are wanna-be-writers who spend their time with endless self-absorption and circling deliberations concerning the writing process, but never put the pencil to paper to actually write something meaningful to others.  Writers begin their careers in earliest childhood.  They don't have to be taught inspiration anymore than a painter needs to be taught inspiration.  Both learn to hone their craft by practicing their craft. Even a two-year-old knows how to pick up a ball and run with it.  If you want to see inspiration at work, watch this short clip:

    A bottle of Jack Daniels.a joint,and maybe a hit or two of acid usually does the trick for me...if not I get loaded.

    My inspiration usually comes from personal experience, wanting to share, somehow address a situation or bring awareness.  Also like to share feeling straight from the heart, no matter how brutally honest or embarrasing it might seem.  You never know when you may have touched someone's heart, set an example, or positively changed their way of thinking.

      Incredibly equal to my own thoughts.
