I just wrote a hub while using the john, took about 15 minutes from birth of idea to completion of article. Of course I then spent 45 minutes doing keyword research. Do any other hubbers have similar tales of spontaneous outbreaks of hub?
Not me - it is too easy to end up with a crappy hub that way
Seriously yes, my last hub poem fell onto paper from first thought to done in about thirty minutes, at least until I get round to the inevitable revision.
I have this evil habit of coming up with a perfect piece of writing (be it poem, hub or just general idea) when I'm somewhere without a pen or too lazy to get one. That's generally in the shower or right before I goto sleep!
I carry a pen around enough that if I have an idea in the shower I'll often grab at my hip dumbly for a minute before I realize I'm not wearing pants and thus have no pen.
At work I generally have a pocket on the front of my shirt with a pen and pad in it - I often get random looks from strangers when I'm out and about in civvies and appear to be groping my own boob!
I gotta say your pen story is better than mine.
So if I need your pad and pen in a hurry . . . . .
Poo poetry can be delightful. I've actually written a little poo poetry.
However, I confess, that my time on the throne is not spent writing hubs, answering phone calls (I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT ONE!!!), or checking emails. Reading, yes once in a while...
You make me laugh, peeps.
Thin q, thin q, mary vuch.

Simple rules:1. Do NOT start writing hub until I (as in ME only) says, IN this thread, "GO"2. One Hub. You have 30 minutes to write it, from scratch. (you can have your word doc open in advance etc., obviously, just no writing). No cheating and using something you started before.3....

A form of this question came up in a recent thread. I responded that I can and have written more than 10 hubs or articles in one day. I just finished a hub, and it took me 19 minutes to write it. It's 800 words long. Many of the articles I write for publishers are only 500 words long. So, you see,...

What are your first steps when writing an Hub?Do you start your hub on a paper sheet (Writing ideas and designing the lay out), or do you go straight forward to "Start a new Hub" and start writing, changing your hub whenever you get a new idea for the hub
