Pre-written or fast success?
I saw someone who just came on here and I viewed one of her hubs and then checked her profile page, it says she had joined an hour ago. In that hour she whipped up 7 fairly well-lengthed hubs, maybe more cause I went to bed later on. Do you think she had these pre-written or was she just in the zone and whipped up those articles? Cheers
I am going to say already written at the very least. I would also suspect plagiarism because nobody writes that fast and chances are if someone just signed up and posted that much within an hour there is something fishy going on. Just my experience.
In the writers defense:
Isn't it possible that she had a storehouse of material that she has written over the years and simply uploaded it? I don't know about you, but I have a boat-load of journals, articles, papers etc. that I have written over the years. Some of it I turn into hubs and some of it I don't......
It's likely they were pre-written or simply were transferred from other places, these scenarios aren't uncommon. As, ChristinS said, plagiarism is another possibility. Most people can easily write quickly as long as it's a subject that they know well and are motivated to write about but the results will not show the writer in the best light. Editing and re-writing is impossible on that number of hubs in one hour unless they are extremely short and in that case they would be seen as substandard.
Well there is nothing wrong with it being pre-written. I have several pieces I have written over the years and archived them on a disk at home. Once I joined Hubpages, I pulled them out and published. The pieces belong to me and have not been published anywhere else.
This may be the case with the person you mention. She may have a ton of writing and was just looking for the right venue to publish.

Someone said, somewhere that to be able to make a living as a writer, you need to be able to research and create an entirely unique, let's say, 615-word article in around an hour. I'm specifically omitting the name of the person who said this to show emphatically that I'm not calling said person...

I wrote a piece about Scorpio Sun Sign People about 6 years ago when I was new here. Most of my main niche is astrology, and instead of contacting me civilly to ask if there was a problem, my piece that was on Exemplore was just pulled from the site. I had just edited it tonight because it's a good...

When I uploaded my newest Hub today, I got the regular "Pending Hub" message, stating that my hub may not be featured for up to 24 hours. About an hour later, it was approved. It might just be my experience, but it feels like that's too fast. Other hubs have taken over 12 hours to be...
