Does anyone else keep themselves up at night with article ideas?
You would think that after writing all day, I would get tird of tossing ideas around in my head, but no... it keeps me up at night! Does anyone else do this too?
Yeah, I do.. I keep myself awake so that I can think of Ideas for more hubs. As I am a housewife I don't get much time to spend on Hubpages. Still working on an article since 2 days, Yet unable to complete it. Every night before I sleep i say to myself tomorrow i will complete it. I write on a notepad on my mobile, when a new topic comes in my head! Good question. I bet many hubbers must keep themselves awake.
I have limited online where I am living, because it is a shared computer, so I know exactly what you mean. we are productive when we can be, and the middle of the night can be very tempting when you know there's an unoccupied computer nearby!
Maybe I should spend more time thinking about what to write - while I have so many 'vague' ideas floating around in my head and on paper, nothing seems to want to come together as one good article!
Usually if I can come up with a bulleted list about a topic, it can be a good article. That list becomes my subheadings.
No, I just let ideas come to me. It is really hard to think of topics when you force them. I just enjoy myself because in that way ideas will flow easily and when it does, I then write about it.
I try really hard not to think about articles or stories in bed. Not because I really mind, but because I hate writing something good in my head and knowing that I will never remember it in the morning. Getting up to write something down is a very common occurrence for me. I find it really difficult to go right from writing to bed. The wheels just don't shut down very quickly, so usually I will put on a movie before bed. That helps calm my mind.
I've gotten up several times to work in the middle of the night. The problem with that is, when you have a late night idea, it sounds perfect at 3 am. In the morning it can sound a little ridiculous.I honestly do by best writing in the afternoon.
Ya, that happens sometimes. Occasionally, though, I have some great ideas just before going to sleep or just after waking up. I suspect perhaps it is because I am partially tapped into the creativity engine our brain uses to generate dreams.
That could be! My dreams tend to be a little abstract, so that could be why my late night thoughts are a little off the wall.
no. I usually look for different ideas during the day. I get ideas from TV and radio, and many more from my old profession in health care.
lol do you hop on make the articles? or just wait? lol, if that was me, i would just hop on haha
Sometimes I do, but nowadays I like to TRY to maintain a day schedule. It doesn't always happen that way though. There have been nights when the temptatiion was just too great, and I ended up online at 2 am writing my heart out till around 6.
oh wowww lol, once your schedule gets messed up like that, its hard to get back to the regular schedule, i used to work nights, it was hard
I've had to switch from a day schedule to a graveyard shift several times. I don't think my body has caught up with me, and my desire to be a day person yet, because my body seems to turn on around 10 pm! Ironically,my brain turn on at around 10 am.
Ha! I would say that 80% of my articles were all written between the hours of 1 am and 4 am! I got to bed most nights (mornings!) seeing nothing but text, usually with a throbbing headache. I don't tend to stay awake trying to think of ideas, however... I just keep a notepad for that, and write something down whenever it pops into my head.

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 your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...

Does anyone use pen and paper to write their stories or hubs?Does anyone use pen and paper to write their stories or hubs, before typing it straight to the computer?

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

Does anyone write for Bubblews and if so what do you think of it? Would it be a good idea to take the hubs I have that aren't performing well and put them on there?
