Six Useful Tips To Write Better Hubs
Hub with Your Heart
You are a writer.You would like to write hubs for your Hubpages account. You come to your laptop face to face and a battle is about to begin. A myriad number of insights starts to bombard and the corroboration of each piece is about to conceive in every push of a letter. However, there are times that the mind is completely blocked and you keep on erasing what you have typed. You do the same step again and again and after a few minutes, you have started nothing. The cycle continues and ends with browsing unrelated sites and worst, you click “x” on your Word and stop for a while.
Stop and Relax...for a while
Writer’s block is very normal. Just like a machine, our brain needs to relax and loosen up a little bit. Just like what you do to computers that hung up. Yes, you hit restart. I know that this fact is no stranger to anyone of us. Just stop and relax for a while and you’ll surely triumph against writer’s blocks. Stop and relax. Writing for Hubpages can wait.
Close your eyes and Imagine
Closing your eyes for a minute or two might be a marvelous remedy especially when your minds are blocked. This brief moment will allow your eyes to relax and your brain to recharge. Remember that when a door closes, windows open. Thus, when your eyes are closed, you imagination begins to generate. Mind you, it’s unlimited. However, just don’t close it for a long time or else, you’ll end up sleeping and not finishing your deadline.
If you are in a clash against your keyboard and an empty word document, you better be prepared. Be battle ready by reading. Having a daily dose of good and interesting reads will definitely widen your imagination and your vocabulary. Never get tired of reading. Absorb every piece of idea and harness it into a sharp doubled bladed sword that could rip your word document and pierce through your reader’s hearts and imaginations. Remember, pen is mightier than sword. Well, I say, your imaginary pen is mightier than a literal sword.
Your mind alone is an arsenal of ideas. It is jam-packed and ever pigment of bright idea is waiting for release. Don’t just keep it for yourself. Share it and the only way to do so is to communicate. We live not to be alone. Talk to people. Know their stories and share yours. Most of the great stories that came from real people are those that are worth sharing. On the other hand, Hubpages will not put a "Hop some hubs" button for nothing.
Experience is the best teacher. No written article or Youtube videos will have your experience the rush of a wonderful experience unless you have tried it yourself. Thus, if you would like to share something, it would be better if it has a dab of personal touch. Learn how to explore the world and experience the best things in life. I must admit, I hate Dora but part of me says that this big head girl has tons of interesting stories to tell because she is an explorer.
Hub with your Heart
It might be a cliché but you should always put heart in everything that you do and everything that you write. Write as if you’re talking to your reader – eye to eye, heart to heart. If you do so, your readers can easily relate to you.
