How do you write a hub?
Do you just sit down, write a hub and publish it? Or do you write a little, think about it, make some changes, do something else in between and go back to change something in your hub and then publish? How do you write your hubs?
First of all I get a drink, usually coffee. Put some background music on then I write my hubs in Microsoft Word. If that project goes well I'll work on it until I'm satisfied with it, which could take a while. Then I proof read it and if I feel it's good enough to publish, I publish it.
I seem to have a few ways of writing hubs depending on the subject.
If it's frivolous or I know my subject really well it just flows and once written and proof-read a few times, I go ahead and publish it.
Others can take a few days as I research them. Then they too have to be proof-read many times before publishing.
On the beginning, I'm writing it in my native language and later translate to english. I'm reading it 1-2 times before publishing. More reading does not have a sense because my grammar is poor ;-)
@Richard: Coffee is always a good friend when you write a hub. I never thought of putting on background music. I understand that it helps you create your beautiful poem hubs.
@Angie Jardine: I guess I use the same methods as you do.
@froch: I have actually thought about writing in my native language and translate, but for me that seems to be too much work.
Thanks for the answers!

I have been a member of Hubpages for a while but did not understand the true value of it until recently; I began updating old hubs and every one updated so far has ended up featured. I hope to do the 30 in 30 once I finish updating everything. I would love to try it in July since June...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

How often do you publish a hub?I publish a hub once a month. I had a hard time to get 700 words, so I am pretty slow at publishing a hub.

It is one thing to hit a double letter (or to skip and "e" like I almost did in letter, but if English is your native language, it seems to me that you should make an effort to spell correctly and use standard English in Hubs you publish and in comments you make. I read a comment this...

I can do up to 4 hubs. I can do more on vacation or when I retire from my job someday.
