    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 smile

    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......

      Yes it's possible but we don't truly know.. But these were posted just last night I can't find who she was anymore haha, who know's maybe it's legit, maybe it's plagiarized but if it is legit, good for her!

    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.
