Hello everyone in hubland, hubville. Just wanted to say that someone, no names to mention, told me that I should write my hubs in the same manner as if I were having a conversation with someone. This kind of makes good sense to me, however it will not work with every topic, that one would choose to write on.
In the how to ----- written hubs, it's more like a getting directly to the point, such as the steps and procedures necessary to write how to hubs. There are many good ideas here about improving your hub writing and being more creative. Another hint idea I caught recently was adding more pictures, and videos, a link or two maybe. It's always good to use a little humor whenever appropriate. Anyone want to jump in and add advice, I am glad you can offer. Sometimes writers block sets in and it is impossible to get the point written. Take a few minutes to breath and relax and see if you can get the mindset and re-focus. Thats about all I can offer right now. Thanks for letting me share thoughts! Have a great experience as you create and write people.Wish you success and lots of fans!
Unfortunately I speak in fragments. My spell checker hates me.
I write in the same voice I speak in, but it comes out a lot friendlier sounding in actual conversation than in my writing. In all but the most serious writing I try to make it a point to "soften" the written words/tone when possible.
This is a good tip. I've read that other writers will read their work out loud to see how it flows. I thought I might give that a try too.
I DON"T write in the same voice that I speak in because my imagination won't allow that. If I wrote the way I speak then my stories wouldn't be very descriptive or fun. So I allow my imagination do the writing when I write. writing with the same voice as you speak doesn't always work.
ehhh, different strokes for different folks. I've always spoke my poems, short stories (and now) hubs out loud! If I just write without reading back my imagination takes over and I'm just all over the place.
There has to be a rhythm to my work, like a poem...a direction in where I want the topic to travel.
I act as if I'm in front of a class or audience reading my material...practicing pitch and deliverence the whole time.
but like I said...different strokes for different folks.

Do you write better than you speak or speak better than you write? Typo's and run on sentences or Foot in mouth syndrome?

Some time back I tried my hand at creative writing. I tried to use my imagination and write a story based on a real event from my distant past.A friend of mine is a creative writer and I enjoy reading his stuff, and he told me to lay it out better.My problem with writing was I could not move away...

Hey anybody,I feel like these particular verses have been received poorly. I'm trying to describe the validity of imagination. I'm trying to say that, even if it's in our heads, it still exists in our heads. And what's in our heads is our heads. Our mind, our soul, goes to a subjective after-life,...
