    I've been busy in my college studies from the last 6 months, But in this period I forget every thing about my writing skills...
    Now, I don't know where to start and how...

    Is there any solution for this... Is there anybody! who could understand my problem and can give me suggestions...

    The easiest way is not to panic, take a step back and ... breathe!

    Decide on a topic, something you know, love or enjoy doing. Click on 'start a new hub' at the top right of your screen and away you go.

    Write oyur hub out in word or via notepad or similar, then copy and paste it into the various text boxes. Add relevant heading, tags and media - and when you're satisfied, click publish.

    If you're unsure, check out how others write their hubs, pay attention to what presents well, what doesn't. If you're really stuck, go and read some 'how to' hubs from the likes of:

    sunforged, darkside, mark knowles, misha, ryan kett, sufidreamer. If you're wanting to make money from product writing go and have a look at Nelle Hoxie for inspiration.

    You have lots of options and help available on-site. One of our hubbers has written a whole series of very helpful and easy to understand guides, which can be found in the learning centre - just look down at the bottom of the page and click on the link 'learning centre'.

    Now chill - it's all good. I expect to see some great hubs sometime soon smile

    Do it as though you were having a conversation with an old friend about something you know and like to discuss. 
    Sometimes if I am having a hard time with the starting part, I ask myself a question as tho I was somebody else; then answer it.

    These forums are so great.   Every time I look to see if I can help, the help that they already have ends up helping me.  Since I am new, I feel a little timid about giving advice, but since I learned what I know in the past few weeks, it is still fresh with me.   Also, it helps me to see the process as I talk about it.   So just remember, I am a newbie, so this is not sage advice, but it is the method I use to forge forward.

    A funny thing is that every idea you have could be a hub page.  Find someway of making a note of each idea you have. I carry a small pocket planner with me and jot something down to remember my ideas.   Then sit down and go over your ideas.   I always throw some out, try to settle on one or two, and sometimes see a series of hubs that go together.

    Once you have the idea, write a letter to your friend and tell him about your idea in detail.   This will be a script for your hub. 

    Every time you change directions, see this as a new capsule.  Then when you are done with the letter, do a Google search on the topic and see if you can find your topic.  Notice the way the subject is handled and try to give your hub a simple name that makes sense and puts your idea in with the other ideas that you found.
    Also, read a few articles to see if you can get inspired to continue with the idea in some way.
    Don't rush to publish; grammar, spelling, links, eye catching photos and graphics, original content, an easy read, interesting topics, and a personable approach take time to produce, but are worth the effort.

    Relax and just write as if your talking to a friend.  You just need to be yourself.

    Before you start check out some other hubs that are on topics your interested in.  Pay attention to the way their written especially the ones you like and find easy to read, this will guide you to your own voice.

    Best of Success,

    Ideas for hubs come at strange times to me. I can use the google keywords tool for ideas that pay well, and write an article accordingly, but they never do well for me.
    I am better off when an idea comes to me, something that interests me that I don't know a lot about. I spend hours happily surfing and learning all about my chosen subject...then I write about it.
    I try to include higher paying keywords if that is possible.
    On a personal level I am quite pleased with some of my results but they have not done well in the search engines.
    Recently I wrote a hub about something I knew well, that did not need research,and it is doing well. Other times I have also written "off the top of my head" and they have not done so well.
    Its a mystery, but I enjoy researching and writing so I'll just keep going and hopefully one day all my efforts will pay off.
