    Do you have Hubs that are incomplete/unpublished that are just collecting virtual dust?

    I recently had a look through my hubs and realized I have at least 6 unpublished hubs that I don't currently have any inspiration to finish. What does anyone else do with these? Wait for a rainy inspired day or just delete them?

    If you feel they are really a long ways from being complete, I think I would just bid them a fond farewell.  Cleaning house can be very therapeutic smile

      I totally agree. Sometimes just not feeling they are there hanging over your head can inspire more creativity smile

    I have a title for one hub, and that's it.  It's a topic I know a lot about, I just can't push myself to do it, despite writing many hubs since saving the title to that one.

    Eventually Ill break down and write it or delete it.  I hate having unpublished hubs collecting dust.

    just think twice before you delete it. My advice is you better finish those hub.. think more ideas how to improve those hubs. I know you will make it ThompsonPen.
    Good luck...

      Thanks! That's how I feel - that if I delete them, one day I'll be ready to complete them and they'll be gone

    Hi ThompsonPen,
                                I have a few incomplete hubs, all of which I intend to finish. I write hubs in series, often I have to complete the series before publishing them all at once. Ronilo Blanca is right, you should always finish and publish them as you never know where your next top performing hub will come from.

    Also, as has happened to me a couple of times, when either finishing or revising an existing hub, you may get an idea for a new hub. I would wait for a rainy day and take a fresh look at them.

      That is sound advice. Thank you for your input!

    I tend to work on 3-5 hubs at a time that are a work in progress.  Sometimes I need some inspiration to finish them, which usually comes at some point.  I do finish them at some point.

      I never used to be a Hub-multi tasker, but I've been finding myself doing this as well, though up until recently I was able to at least get one of the Hubs in my multi-tasking muddle done a day smile

    I have a handful that I had come up with an idea and title for, but just haven't had the chance to write them yet. Now that school's out for the summer, there will be less running around with the kids and hopefully I can get them hammered out!
