    Do you have different hubs unpublished that you are working on?

    I have a couple of hubs that I am still working on and researching. I have them written on a notepad awaiting completion. Is this the best way, or do you type them up (unpublished) and add to them here on hubpages, then publish them? I'm not sure what the best approach is. What do you do?

    I usually have quite a few hubs that I'm working on at the same time. When I think I have a good idea for a hub, I start a new one, do some research and see how it's going to work out. I do keep a special notebook to jot down further ideas etc. But I tend to start typing up, collecting phots etc. at the same time. I know that this approach works best for me, but other hubbers, I'm sure will have their own unique ways of working.

    I usually have a few hubs unpublished (3 at the moment). However, as & when a idea (those light bulb moments), i create a title for that hub and base my decisions on whether to proceed with the hub. For example, if the hubscore starts around the late 40's, chances are i would delete that hub. If the hubscore is around the late 50's, then i would proceed and do further research to increase the hubscore.

    I know that hubscores a highly subjective but starting with a higher hubscore motivates me to write a better hub, ie, well reseached & useful.

    I think the 'best' approach all depends on your personality and temparament. 

    As for myself, I do a little bit of both the approaches you mentioned... First I write the bulk of it in MS word or Notepad, adding to it over time.  When I am at the point that the text is finally mostly written down (i.e. about 90% of it is there), then I put it on Hubpages unpublished. Then I read over it and make minor changes and additions as needed while it's still unpublished (I do this part in a few short sessions over a few days).  During this time I also play around with the layout using 'preview' mode to make sure it looks good (move the pictures around, etc etc).  Then I publish it. 

    I really like the *process* of writing Hubpages articles and having control of the layout, so my incremental approach feels like 'play' to me rather than 'work'. So basically, I do it this way because it feels like a fun way of doing it.

    Currently, I do not have any unpublished hubs, but I do sometimes have some saved on Hubpages without publishing.  I have the most free time on the weekend, so I will often write about 3 or 4 hubs in a day.  I learned the hard way not to publish all the same day.  My hubscore would drop from that.  So now, if I write a number of hubs at once, I space out when I "release" them to the public.  I usually space a day or two between each one.

    Right now I do have an idea about a hub I would like to write and I have been thinking about it for about a week.  I just have not written it yet.

    Yes, I sometimes have a hub that I start and then have to brood about for a bit. Often the longer it is unpublished the more I realise that my thinking is too woolly on the subject. That one usually ends up getting deleted. I can always start again once my thoughts are clearer.

    Otherwise if the subject is weighty or I need more research and have little time, a hub may sit there for a couple of days before being published.

    That reminds me ... I have one to delete ...
