I've always found it easier to recall and expound upon topics that are presented randomly in the discussions.
When it comes to "coming up" with a topic for an article, I draw a blank for weeks at a time. So, I've naturally become partial to forums. This happen to anyone else?
I write gardening hubs. Very often I am inspired by something I see outside. For instance, I startled a toad while weeding and thought of writing a hub on attracting toads to your garden. I see that you write a lot of hubs on psychology. With all that is going on in the world today, perhaps you can find inspiration in the news for topics of interest in that field. For instance, analyzing the psychology behind an event or a person's reaction to events.
If you see topics on forums you want to expound upon, you could do that and try to put it on the Soapboxie niche. Although opinions are so sharply divided, it could be aggravating!
Sometimes when I am stuck, I try to think of a subject I always wanted to know more about. I read a book or two about it. And off I am, writing about that topic. As psycheskinner says, it helps to jot it down if an idea gets in your head, or even keep a folder and if you see an article that interests you, put it in the folder. You may find you have more to say about that topic.
Next time a discussion provokes you to expound, write the topic down in a notebook or on your phone.
My advice is to stay away from the forums. Nothing will destroy your faith in the future of humanity than reading the forums. There's an article in that right there.
I bought some different colored post-it tabs then divided my journal up into a bunch of sections for different things such as Potential Article Topics - HP, Potential Article Topics Medium, Marketing HP etc. I found that even when I made the effort to jot things down throughout the day, when I had them all jumbled up I ended up never looking at the notebook. This way is more organized and it makes me feel good to be able to keep things organized and be able to go through and cross them off, follow up or reference for future action in a systematic manner.

I am new here so it's possible this has been suggested before. How about a debate forum, separate from the other forums, where contentious topics can be debated? So, if people wanted to discuss, say, a philosophical topic in the Religion forum and someone jumped in and started debating,...

I see the "magnifying glass" icon to the right searches the entire site. But, how do we go about searching the discussion forums? When I returned to HubPages a few months ago I was having a bit of a difficulty updating myself because, I could not search for information in the forums. A...

I was just looking at the titles of the threads for the forums and was immediately struck by the large number of religious topics, many of which have God in the title. I am just wondering why there are so many religious posts here at present? It makes hubpages look as if it is full of religious...

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...
