    Where do you generally find the inspiration to start a new hub?

    Where do you search in? Is it the web, or your previous experiences or just search within your brain for better ideas?

    I share the things that I am passionate about- things that I have learned in life and at work; things I teach on through other venues. I read books (from the library!) related to my interests and such "research" contributes to my writing on favorite topics.  Knowledge of what books are out there that I might be interested in often come from different web sources.

    Everywhere! I keep an eye out for things in my day-to-day life that I find interesting enough to write about. My fiance and I often have philosophical debates which lead to good ideas for hubs, or I'll read a good book that I know I have to share. I don't tend to specifically go looking, otherwise I know I'm not genuinely interested and I won't want to write something on the topic.

    Sometimes, I gain inspiration from reading things such as books and short stories.  I may read a few, then link some of their ideas and mine together in a hub.  Other times, I will decide to write something eventually, then actually eventually write it.  Every once-in-a-while, an idea will just hit me.

    I usually take a step back and realize that a hub can be created from something simple. Sometimes it's the easy things that people want to read about! When I feel a bit overwhelmed, I look at the things in my life that I usually don't give a second thought...then write about it. smile

    For me, it depends on observation most of the time. I look around and see what people are doing. e.g. I was coming to office one day and an elderly guy asked for a pick up. I just helped him. This gave me an idea that I should write about it, just wrote a hub, 'why should we respect our elders?'. At other times, I feel passionate just about something and write about it. This is how it works for me.

    Reading and travel are my fascination and it give me ample opportunity to find some stuff for writing. Spirituality is also a field I find solace and ground of writing. Most of my hubs are done from the knowledge and experience I earned through reading mainly.
