    Actually before I get an invite, I'm taking a rain check on this. I've written another two hubs tonight since the earlier challenge, but I need to verify one or two things, and I don't feel like sorting them tonight...never mind writing another hub! So good luck to those who take part smile

    Cags you've been an inspiration! Thank you so much for that! I'm not taking part but I hope when I wake in the morning, I can find this thread and see what you have all done smile

      Thank you kindly. smile And, I hope you have at least a few more to read than two???

      Then again, I might save it for doing later, with others who are likely to come to the forums.

      So, it wouldn't be any fun just Ohma and Myself. Grant it, we would get another hub published, but more people are better.

      (not trying to goat you into it) lol lol

      I'm also speaking to those watching the forums, as well. smile

      Welcome! Glad to have.

      I'm still working on how many people are going to be doing it.

      I might wait for a few more....like at least 1 or 2 more people.

      But, we'll see what happens...so I'll give it another 15 minutes.

  18. Cagsil profile image78
    Cagsilposted 12 years ago

    That is because it's not finished.

    I started a hub, then lost my train of thought half way thru. Started a different hub, but not finished.

    Congrats!

    Thats ok I am not sure I will leave mine up. Very spur of the moment and very personal.

    It's more a rant. I do not like it. But, I published it.

  21. Ohma profile image60

    Just read it and left a comment. I think it says a lot!

  22. Cagsil profile image78

    Yeah, but not what I was going for, when I started it. lol lol

  23. Cagsil profile image78

    I am in or am I too late?

    1. Cagsil profile image78
      Cagsilposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      Hey raisingme,

      What's up?

      Yes, you're a little late. However, I am thinking of doing it again, a little bit later tonight.

      Shadesbreath has me hooked on writing hubs like this. It is certainly a challenge to crank out one hub in 30 minutes.

      So, I'm giving you a heads up, as well as, anyone else...I might do another later.

      But, it was nice to see you again.


      @Ohma, yeah, sometimes writing off the cuff is easier, because things just flow out. Unfortunately, I was pressed for time..I had written half a hubs worth, before I discarded my first hub.

      I only 15 minutes to write the hub I did write. lol lol

  25. Ohma profile image60
    Ohmaposted 12 years ago

    sometimes rants are the best! when you just let what is in your heart to come out it is at least sincere.

  26. Ohma profile image60
    Ohmaposted 12 years ago

    Raisingme we just finished sorry. but watch the forms for them Cagsil does this when he is bored I think. There will be others.

  27. Ohma profile image60
    Ohmaposted 12 years ago

    Cags I have to be at work at 6a.m. I am off to bed. Have a good night.

  28. raisingme profile image81
    raisingmeposted 12 years ago

    I posted anyway just in case and then came back and check to see if my question got answered.  I was getting dinner on the table so I missed when go was said.  So I won't post the link here just in case it is a no no now!

  29. Cagsil profile image78
    Cagsilposted 12 years ago

    Have a good night. Sleep well and be safe. smile Thank you. smile

  30. CaribeM profile image73
    CaribeMposted 12 years ago

    Sorry, haven't finish it yet sad Too many pics to post. Maybe next time you can make a challenge to write a hub in Two hours LOL!  Well good night, I'll try to finish mine tonight. Take care you both!

    1. Cagsil profile image78
      Cagsilposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      That's okay, when you do get it done, post it here. I'll read and comment on it. smile

      It is not a problem. It isn't as easy as it appears to be. Thus, a challenge. At least you gave it a shot. But, also remember, whenever you fail in something, make sure you learn from it. wink smile

      It was a pleasure to meet you too. smile

    Great challenge! Thanks to some really insightful comments on a post, I wrote my last hub in the parameters, though at the time I wasn't trying to do the challenge...  I tend to write stream of conscious when it's something that really matters to me, so typos are typical, but not the point. I think it's easy to do something like this if there is intense inspiration, otherwise I sit in front of my blank screen and will words to come to me for hours....

  32. CaribeM profile image73
    CaribeMposted 12 years ago

    Well... this one for the MANY 30 minutes Hubchallenge wink

    This was inspired by a recent experience the I had: snorkeling in Rinc√≥n, PR http://hubpages.com/hub/Snorkeling-in-t … uerto-Rico

    Thanks Cagsil!  Yes we did learned a lesson... maybe there is no such thing like a 30 minutes challenge.

    Take care.

    1. Cagsil profile image78
      Cagsilposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      lol lol lol lol

      Of course there is a such a thing as a 30 minute challenge and they do happen from time to time, so as to initiate creativity and conscious flow of thoughts to page.

      It can be difficult to do, because you have to do a lot in a short period of time and requires intimate knowledge on writing, subject and HubPages.

      But, I am glad you finished your hub and I congratulate you for finishing it. I am off to read it and comment. Thank you very much for taking part and I hope you can continue strive to improve. smile

  33. Cagsil profile image78

    That was one huge hub to undertake in 30 minutes, however, I commend you on it's completion. Looks and reads well.

    Great job on it! I rated it up and posted a comment for you. smile

    1. CaribeM profile image73
      CaribeMposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks for checking the non-compliance 30 minutes hub wink After I realized that I was not going to finish in the required time, I decided to include more info and pics, and of course I went to sleep and finished some errands before finishing it.

      Maybe instant hubs are not my thing wink

      Thanks for the rating!!!  See you around!

  34. Cagsil profile image78
    Cagsilposted 12 years ago

    Thank you for trying. smile At least you have a new hub regardless. smile

    Think you can do it? Do you have what it takes to complete?

    When done and published, I'll be glad to read and comment. smile

    Cagsilposted 12 years ago

    Well, I am waiting for more people to join in, so we can publish more hubs at the same time.

    It was pretty cool last time. The people who did write a hub, instantly had a new hub and comments, not only from those who took part, but from those watching the forum light up the feed, which displays the hubs as they are published.

    So...I'm waiting for now...the more the better. smile
