    Normally, I just think of what I want to learn. How to create a calligraphy page, to influence others, what are the difficulties in relationships, how to make characters come alive in writing, job opportunities, etc. Then I research them and write down what I learned.

      I also do the same thing. I try to pick the topic from the question of my patient. After picking it, I try to rephrase the medical knowledge to regular language so that a non-medical person can understand what I want to say.

      It is nice that you can create hubs based on real events that you see every day. Thank you.

    A lot of mine are total spontanous inspiration. I love to write and have always been shy about others reading my works. My cousin recently told me about hubpages and encouraged me to get on here. smile I did and have started to blossom I feel. What about you?

    I wake up, I get out of bed and I live my life.  Hub ideas just seem to take care of themselves after that.

    Sometimes they just occur to me, and they seem to spring forth fully formed, I just sit down and pound them out. Other times they take a long time to germinate and grow, and then they take research or in the case of a how to hub or craft, I have to actually do the thing, and take pictures of the thing, and it's a long process that can go on for a week or more. The amount of work I put in on a hub seems to have little to do with how many other people actually want to read it.

    I use mind mapping and freewriting which I have hubbed about.  Our best writing comes from writing about things we are familiar with and know - but putting our own spin on it.  Sometimes researching how to do something, doing it and then including our trials/errors etc. to better the process. 

    With freewriting you just write - not for anyone else, but just yourself.  It allows you to push your inner critic aside and just let ideas flow out.  From that, you cull the good ideas you may want to explore further and do a mind map which can lead to unlimited ideas.  Say your main idea was "making soap" - one of my favorite things smile then you branch out "best place to get ingredients" "how to make shaving soap" "soap making tutorial" "how to package and sell soap" etc. 

    After that, if you are interested in generating revenue hubs you take your title ideas and search them on the Google keyword tool and pick the ones that appear to have the most traffic with low competition etc. 

    This process has multiple steps, but they are quick steps - and the same process can be used to actually write the hub once you have the idea established.  I've hubbed about all of this if you are interested.  Try it out you'll be amazed at how much you can come up with to write about smile

    Great question... for which I also need an answer! I've tried the Weekly Topic Inspiration. I came up with a Hub the last time. I also try to find inspiration from everywhere.. but it doesn't seem to be working for me at this time.
