I'm into Day 5 of my challenge, and am now having massive issues with the hub I'm working on.
I'm just really tired after a crazy night of tracking down spare keys to my flat. I'm house sitting for my parents at the moment, but I had to go back to my flat to feed the cat everyday (my flat's about an hour away from my parents). So I drove all the way back to my flat only to realise I had left my stupid keys back at my parents.
So I tried to get the spare from my boyfriend's parents, who had left them in their shed ('cause they are away overseas at the moment as well). But of course when I got there, I found out that boyfriend's aunty had took them inside the house for safety. Uggghhh! To cut a long story short, I didn't get back to my parent's place till well after midnight.
Now I'm sitting in front of my computer with an article that I've been working on for the last two days. It is not working, and I don't know if I should burn it, flush it down the loo or feed it to the cat... I'm just tired and ranting.
Burn it? Could cause a fire
Flush it? Could clog the commode
Feed it to the cat? I spoke to fluffy and he prefers tuna
As such, I would let that one unpublished and move onto another hub. If the inspirational muse grabs at you later you could always finish it then.
Writing should be done in the most uplifting environment possible yeah, sound corny but is best to write when there are no other pressing matters to worry about since you do end up stressing yourself out. Review your activities and set a schedule. Best method for me that works without the stress
Who says you have to finish that hub before working on another? Write about something fun. Most of us have 10-12 (or more!) unfinished hubs sitting around. Don't stress. Have fun! I've scrapped hubs before, I've set them aside for weeks, I've deleted them. Deleting is a last resort.
Thanks guys for all the great tips! I will work on something else and come back to this hub. And Dame Scribe, your advise is not corny, it makes sense. I will work when I'm feeling more relaxed and less stressed.

HI. I sorta like HP. I find some of what the rest of the people here have to say interesting. But let's be honest. I'm hear for the backlinks. I am writing hubs as part of my SEO. Problem is I can't get my score over 66 much less up to the 75 mark and I'm getting tired of it. I hop hubs every day,...

I'm familiar with the problems some people have been experiencing since whatever happened on Saturday 9/27 and that HP is in the process of clearing everything up, but I'm not sure if other people are having the same problems I'm still having so I'll list them here. Just to note, I've followed some...

Understandably the community here is concerned about spammy lenses/hubs that might affect their bottom line. I've been deleting (or at least hiding) a bucketload of Amazon links. Yes, I've gotten folks posting dire warnings and complaining about lens/hubs that I haven't gotten a chance to fix yet....

I've often been accused of being arrogant, and it's usually by people who disagree with me about something. I've noticed that some of my favorite historical personages have also been accused of arrogance. What exactly is arrogance? And is it always bad?Is there any non-pejorative way to say that...

I've been working on some hubs today and the editor and hubs created are totally screwed right up. Things vanishing, pictures I put in and deleted hours ago that I've since replaced re-appearing in random places, and all manner of strange things.I thought perhaps somebody might like to know.
