The Mood of a Writer

Updated on April 24, 2011

There are many kinds of writers. Non-fiction writers write about true events, bibliography of popular people while fiction writers are those who weave make believe stories that are also derived from actual events only that it often ends happily. I fall in any of those categories. I'm still honing my writing skills to the fullest here in HubPages. I touch this and that subjects that pop up in my brain.

Inspirations in Writing

Essay writing is a popular genre in writing that develops your idea about a subject. Fellow hubbers used to do it in elementary grades. Who can ever forget themes, like: My Vacation, My Favorite Teacher, My Best Friend, My Parents, My Home or My Favorite Pet. Topics like this can evolve into something huge here in HubPages. The only difference is that we are at the higher level of consciousness, so we often write more complex sentences to set a unique style different from other hubbers.

Notable writers in history include famous English playwright William Shakespeare, my personal favorite Edgar Allan Poe, Greek poets like Plato up to the contemporary writers like Dan Brown (for his Da Vinci Code,among others), Dr. Robin Cook (for his medical dramas that are derived from true events). Here in the Philippines, I will raise the flag for our national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal for his two subversive novels, Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) and Il Filibusterismo (The Filibuster).

HubPages inspirations are so many to mention. In this virtual writing community, our skills are rewarded through the monetization of our hubs. Those prolific hubber who belong now to the HubPage Elite circle are reaping the rewards of their works. They are the core of the HP, also known as the Hub Nuggets, that taught me how to insert myself in niche of these dedicated hubbers.

The Mood of a HubPage Writer

More often than not, the mood of a writer varies from time to time. I should say that I'm always eager to absorb whatever knowledge or ideas I can get from any sources in tri-media (television, newspaper and radio).

I should say that I am eclectic. My hub topics vary because I don't want to be stagnant to a subject that only a particular group of people can enjoy. Maybe, you can call me a bohemian writer, instead of travel man.

I cry for justice recently, due to the suppression of rights committed to the media men by politicians in Maguindanao, Philippines. Writers, hubbers, or any name you call it feel what is really happening around them.

Sometimes, I feel melodramatic when completing my hub. I tend to personalize it because I experienced what I'm writing. I feel I had to share it, so that others should or will learn from my mistakes or applaud what I did. Same thing happen when I sometimes participated in the forum; sympathy still rocks the foundation of HubPages. After all we are all humans, right?

Sometimes, I did flag a hubber because I feel that he is endangering me and the other as well due to his unnecessary and incomprehensible comments. I felt that I had to make an action to hamper him from further annoyance.

We think the same things about love, family, money, people, places and other things that affect our whole being. We just interpret it in many different ways because we are molded from different cultures and family backgrounds.

Sometimes, my hub will be proclaimed as duplicated ones because I wrote the same subject or topic, like my other fellow hubbers. Well, there are vast of information that delve on the same subject. We, hubbers can just click, copy, paste or link those written ideas in the net, if we feel lazy while doing the hub. Strictly speaking, HubPages devised a technical way to examine every written hub we submitted , whether it is plagiarised version of a more popular blog or hub.

Writer's block is the most feared among writers. There are many what if's that come to mind. What if I cannot think of any ideas, tomorrow and the rest of my life? Even famous writers experience this phase in their writing careers.

I'm not the best hubber that you can proclaim as number one, but I can be your jack-of-all trades in HP world. Ideas are everywhere, I just have to pick the right ones if I want to carve a name in HubPages' Gallery of Hub Nuggets.

      @albertmg:Thanks for dropping by. The more we encourage others to write, the more we learn about the world we live in.

      Writers are notorious for being moody. But that's because they write about it. Human beings in general have their moods too. But writers are more sensitive, they seek to understand themselves, which is why they write about it, hoping to get some answers or simply to ventilate. This is a nice piece that encourages others to keep writing, no matter the mood.

      Same thing with me, loriamoore. Popping ideas should be given a more thorough concentration for a better hub. Thanks.

      Nice hub, Travel_Man1971. My "mood" when writing is usually energetic because normally the entire story pops into my head and my job then is to just get it put down on paper.

      It's just a huge amount of concentration or random of thoughts. First, start with your tickler to note a worthy subject one at a time. Then you can develop it or expound later. Thanks and good luck, bacville.

      I'm still contemplating whether or not, I will concentrate on writing because at this time, I have a busy schedule of classes in school.
