Have you ever started a new hub and not completed it? Why?
Not yet. I have one unpublished which I will publish when I am done working on it. At any given time I will have one sitting there unpublished, but it does get published.
It's sad, but yes. I have started a hub or two and not completed it. The reason is because I get excited about writing a particular hub and then once I start the research I become so overwhelmed that I put it down, thinking I'll come back to it.
Yes, but it is because it is an important issue to me and I want to make sure that everything is correct before publishing it.
I have a few Hubs saved as drafts as they were ideas which i do not want to forget about so i gather the pictures and pick my layout, leaving the content for when i have the time to finish correctly.
Yes, all the time. Right now I have about 24 unpublished, partially written Hubs. This is because I start one every time I have a idea for one. But I don't have time to complete it, or it does not have sufficient words to be at least 500 words long. So I put it in draft mode until I can put more words into it.
Yes I have. I have two in my word document. While I had what I thought was sufficient material to run with...I would find that I ran out of steam with it. I left the articles (saved) as is, in the event I have a thought or the inspiration to complete them.
I get an idea then get a better idea and lose interest in the old idea. I write with my heart and instincts and there has to be that special something that makes me want to write on a particular topic. If I don't feel it I can't write it. So when that feeing goes I just delete it. Like the time I started writing about "Man boobs" and "Why I don't like Christopher Columbus".
Yes. I have had a couple. One I didn't finish because it was below par . . . it seemed like a good idea until I saw it written out. The other one had copy that I decided to keep in the vault for publishing in print ($).
Not so far, because I'm new here, but I've had unfinished projects in the past. Sometimes they come back to life after I've thought about it for a while, so all is not lost. I've also converted unfinished ideas into other projects, simply by noticing a new twist they can take.
As mentioned above, I've started hubs and let them sit a bit while gathering the info for completion, but since they eventually get finished, I didn't count that.
Yes I have, because of writer's block. I just had a hub that I was working on and stop and I just completed yesterday
Several times, for me, I write poet, when I don't have a muse or am tired and my mind is not calm.. It doesn't flow for me and so I quit

Have you ever chosen to delete any of your hubs?If so, why? Did it have the affect that you were looking for?

Do you have a lot of 'red' hubs sitting in your HP account? Or do you decide on a topic, concentrate on that one hub and see it through from start to finish, before even considering the next one?I always have a large collection of red hubs, which I mostly started but abandoned somewhere along...

I started a hub but I don't want to finish it. I would like to delete it so it doesn't lower my hubber score. Can anyone tell me how to delete a hub. Also do unpublished hubs affect my score? I have a hub that was seasonal so I unpublished it. My profile says I am a four year member but I...

It has been awhile since I had written a hub so, I accidentally hit a wrong button and exited out of the hub I was creating. I thought it was exiting me out of the box I was working on so I could continue. Instead it exited me out of the entire hub. So, my question is how do I delete the unfinished...

I don't know why but the hub that I posted recently started with the lowest score possible, which is 45. I am not sure what the reason it; I mean it is not that bad. Take a look at it yourself. A new colour in the universeI have a suspicion that it is due to the use of 'colour' instead of 'color'....
