My fashion hub has basically been completed for 3 days. The remaining copy will take me 20 min then 10 to reproof.
I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't motivate myself or hold my attention long enough to focus on completing this.
and it's driving me insane
May sound trivial but the "I'll do it tomorrow" isn't working and I am so frustrated
ANY IDEA"S PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!
maybe just posting this will help.
And look the time it took me to write this would have just cut almost 10 min off the time to complete my damn hub
Here's a thought. Don't publish it. Put it to the side. There must be some reason why you haven't completed the task, so why fight it? What's the hurry anyway? Do you have a deadline to meet other than one that is self imposed? I'm sure when the mood strikes you, you'll come back to it and finish the task...or you won't. Next!
thank you, it's funny I don't even think of that. This is now absurd. not publishing [hoping it will make me publish]
ps is this a ploy for self promotion?
hes right you know, sometimes walking away gives your mind space to think out what it is you need to do.. and you can read things afresh.. and sometimes inspiration magically knits it all together, when you wait a moment, the magic happens and the creativity flows.
I can see that you, too, know how it feels to be a perfectionist...It's great to hear how you got through it. I'm putting together a website (I just started on HubPages today), and I can say that it's sometimes hard to keep focused on the big picture when a single page seems insurmountable. But you stuck to it, and you found help when you needed it - that's good stuff, if you ask me.
you need editing help or motivaton help?
I will read it and leave a comment if you publsih it. or i will read it and tell you if I see any spelling errors if you mail it to me? keeep in mind Im not so good at spelling...
thanks love, no the motivation, I am so frustrated, I can't bring myself to finish, is there a bigger reason WTF?
I have a 5 part fashion series - this is hub 3-shoes, I think Im afraid it wont live up to the series.-all the same format and tone
They all have fun with fashion and are humorous. I have gone through hundreds of shoes and have about 30 bazaar ones - i write captions with thar that mock that apparel or accessory
Shoes are tough, but I'm not ashamed to say I m scared it won't be good enough. I normally don't write things I have no knowledge about so maybe I'm feeling ay out of my league to those who do follow/know fashion.
hub2-nails and hair
completion series hub
ow...so your not NOT motivated, just nervous? I bet its good. really, I loved the hats!!! I know nothing about hats, but it was fun.
you have a personal goal, yes? No one will be upset with you if you wait. BUT you feel like it needs to happen now?
Just put it out there. You will feel better.
you mean just do it or wait?
Like publish in half hour?
Your right ya know its fear not motivation-so weird
but it helps
so Can you do me one last favor?
I have to email u when I'm done, something to hold me axxountable
don't think Im a freak and do have severe ADD
worst last few days than most
I have gone through the same thing, we have to walk away clear our minds, focus on other things for awhile and then come back to what we are working on. You can do it just relax and then go back and finish it up.
ad a thought what if put my high heels on and work in them and a few pairs on my desk
see loosing it
At exactly 9:15 (10 min)
I will do this hub
email justine and AE once I publish
and pray to god someone hijacks this immediately
I feel exposed enough
high heels (heels is one letter away from hells) are good. Sit and look at your toes! eat some crackers and take a deep breath. and your in the same time zone as me!!!!
You WILL do this hub, it wll be great, and no one expects more of you then you do.
and they call me crazy
I will be heeled I am sure after this as my soul will be relaxed
couldn't help it
had to be done :
everyone has to be done soetimes. take a bath woman!!!!
@Lyrics, just finish the damn hub and get it over with already would you. LOL! Do you not like publishing hubs or something??? Huh?
Come on, publish already, need more hubs to read. LOL!
So, did that help? Probably not, but figured I would throw it out there.
Finish your hub or the bunny gets it!!!
Is that motivational enough?
Finish the hub or I will come out to Canada and give you a long discourse on the lengthy history of Klingon opera!
OMG Yosh, 2 days still can't open it
going to now, I swear
this is so feeling like a self promotional thread.
Trust me it's not, you'll understand, believe me.
W T F ?
YOSHI's killing my bunny and I haven't followed up. nor read this thread
Have I become a chronic procrastinator?
Is this a serious disorder?
I have emails not opened from 6 weeks ago
My desk looks like a paper mill
my dog smells
my doctor fired me for missing too many appointments
yep, great. another label
there on the table
we know I'm not stable
NUT DAMNIT I"M ABLE
and writing this rhyme to procrastinate the hub
what should I take?
I should take one greek
that'll do it
off to edit
do you want it to be?
Fee if I see???????????????????????????????????
crazy bladders have we
[noting kimberly is clearly a rhyming savant pee=be?]
urinate at least in my books!
maybe even a nine out of ten!
that didn't rhyme
not creative as mine
out of time
need some weed to do hub.
You don't need any pot
To write a hub that is hot!
Just ease your mind,
and inspiration you'll find.
Just take out your pen,
and a muse I will send.
Put it to down to your sheet,
words will flow like milk from a teet.
Lyrics and words are easy,
Don't stress out Kimberly
If you still have writer's block
Just release with the help of a c****
how's it going??????? If you publish it exactly at the time you intended, then come back to it tomorrow and make any needed changes. Cannot wait to read it. So busy at work lately i am not writing at the moment, just enjoying others work
You Can Do It
good to hear, you do so much writing, are you earning money from it, if you don't mind me asking, you really put so much effort into everything you do.
Kimberly, my dear friend. You know I'm always here to help you out. If you email me with a specific problem, or even other issues, I'm your handyman and motivator.
You need to worry less about how good your shoehub is, and just publish it, if it has everything you want to say already. It can be tweaked later..it's never written in stone. It's not like a magazine article, where you can't go back, once it's printed. Go for it!!
BTW..check your gmail..there may be something interesting to divert your attention.
Hey Timorous, Kimberly was having a problem, but I am sure it is not a problem any longer.
However, I am sure she will keep the thread alive, just to chat. Hope you are well today, nice to see you, as always.
go girl go - come on now - lets get this hub up and see what you have got - let us know when it is published.....I cant help with content as I only have one pair of boots...and they are not crocidle skin......more like man made leather....but I will read....so hurry up....
when i read "begging" and "lend me half an hour", i got excited for all the wrong reasons
I tried to mail myself to you ... as added incentive ... but somehow I ended up in the Amazon jungle with some tribe that calls themselves the Cannibals. Fortunately, they have designated me to be the guest of honor at a special feast and they are currently giving me a nice warm bath. I'm just a bit uncertain of the carrots and potatoes they keep tossing in, but I assume they must have some native cleansing properties.
HAVE YOU NOT HEARD OF FED EX?
WERE YOU TRYING TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS?
YOSHI I NEEDED YOU BUT YOUR TOO BUST NOW
WHEN I HAVEN"T SINCE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>never mind
I just procrastinate that too so I don't have to reciprocate
oh com, on, that was funny, we're jewish for God's sake
oops still now procrastinating ti procrastinate
oh stop whining kimberly - we ALL need help - for me, it would take a lot longer than 1/2 an hour, because its been so long since I've had any
take a pill

no more peeing in the forums, either, its starting to stink!

Starting to drink water now. Prepare weapons
Cagsil, so very very, you know.
Hi Number 1!
Would you like to have a suggestion on some controversial fashion subject ?
by Smart Rookie 8 years ago
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'm not necessarily in the 30 in 30 this month, but I'm desperately trying to empty my que. I now have 52 unfinished hubs, and I've completed 8 so far this month. We'll see if I can get at least half of those 52 gone by the last day in February.Which, means I'll end up publishing at least 30...

Do you publish your Hubs as soon as you finish them?I find that I have several Hubs completely done and edited, but have not published them. I like to publish on Tuesday through Thursday and no more than two a week. There are a variety of reasons for the order I decide to publish...
