    What do you do to come up with new Hub topics?

    Alot of the topics I write about are posted at All Cash On Deck, my own domain. I want to use HubPages to start writing about some new things and improving my overall abilities, but seem to be having trouble coming up with alternative topics

    I stay aware of what goes on around me and how i feel about situations.
    Whenever somethings interests me, I make a mental note about it - later while writing hubs, I think back on it  - This always helps me come up with new perspectives and ideas.
    Also, a lot of times I come up with topics while reading other hubs, answering questions or participating in the forums. Hope this helps!

    When I joined Hubpages I brainstormed a list that I wanted to write about.  Once that was done, I have been having trouble coming up with ideas.  Lately though, I don't dwell on the fact I am having writer's block, I just forget about it and sometimes an idea will come to me when I am least expecting it.

    Initially we knew several canine topics we wanted to address, so it was easy.  Now, it's doing a little research  to maintain a certain degree of first-hand experience, which I think the readers appreciate. Hopefully this helps you.

    I write mainly about travel. I usually try to find a a destination that offers something new or interesting for people planning to travel, usually like to find a place that the entire family can enjoy, with lots of activities.

    I would not tell you where and how...

    We are all so creative that we can write anything on any topic whether it interests us or not, whether we know anything on the subject or not.

    Pick any word and go from there.  Be silly.  Be completely ridiculous.  The only secret to unleashing your creativity is the ability to relax and let go of judgement.

    The only thing to remember - first you create "flow" - let it go in any direction you want and then, only then, you edit and re-write your work.  The problem with the "writer's block" is that the judgement comes before the deed, the activity, the writing, the coming up with ideas.

    I don't know...
    I can't...
    It is not allowed...

    You can not create anything being tied up by judgement - regardless whether it is your own or somebody else's.

    Write about:

    1) success
    2) superstition
    3) or how ridiculous you think my suggestion is.

    Write about how people cannot answer simple questions or how meaningful/meaningless their comments are.

    I had the problem writing at the beginning (probably it goes for everyone) and I stumbled upon on the hub "I prefer".  It was a very good idea of making a list (it is a poem that does not require rhyming) and from that point you can write your own list and explore each line you come up with writing a separate hub.

    My own problem now is time - I have so many hubs waiting to be written and one of the series is "Creativity".

    Good luck.
