Hey WriteAngled, "TRUE" poetry? Oh, come on. Isn't that a bit much.
@OP As for writing hubs in 30 minutes, like Schoolgirl has said, I used to challenges of that sort. It's conscious writing and any topic is a go for anyone attempting it.
There were times where I would state that poems/poetry wasn't allowed, because it doesn't actually fit the criteria for the challenge. The challenge is about writing more than 400 words through conscious thought.
During those challenges, I have written articles on just about anything and everything. The shortest article written during a challenge was about 750 words.
I would think the topic would be secondary to achieving the flow of your pen. Sometimes the best writing is derived from free writing, and allowing your thoughts to just wander. Sometimes whatever is kikin around inside is the best, regardless of specific topics.
I have penned many tracts which were not a "topic" persay to begin with, but in the end they were about one topic or another.
I agree with TM Mason that whatever is on your mind is the best,
Of course my idea came from Cagsil's challenges of 30 mins
And as for me, I would either write a poem (IF I had the passion to..which most time I could).. or whatever is on my mind..
lately I've been writing poems 90% cause I consider myself not up to more at this time.
Again, I must say, as a poetry veteran you may say that it doesn't take several days to write a poem, Epigramman spits out witty poems daily and more than one or two daily. In my other acct blondey, I also write mostly poetry. It takes me 5 mins to write down a poem..I prob could improve them a bit, and some I have..but when you have the ability and also the passion in the moment, it all comes easily...ok nuff said.
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.,...
How much time do you normally require to write a hub on the average? I am asking this because I can easily write a hub within 30-40 minutes time and sometimes a hub will take a couple of hours or so. BUT food hubs are...
I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating...
