What more can I write on Hubpages

Conquering the Block

I been writing in a serious manner for years, first starting in grade school where I took writing, very seriously.

I use to enjoy writing prose for school assignments, slowly but surely I ran into poetry, which definitely had an affect on my style of writing in a huge way. Ever since I came across poetry I decided to learn how to write things in that format.

I only returned back to the prose form when I entered college many years ago, for the first time.

I wrote so much in high school my teacher decided to take me out of the normal classroom setting, and make me the schools chief editor of their news editorial paper we had, at Manhattan Center High School for Science & Mathematics in New York City.

Experiencing Hub Writers Block


Words of Inspiration to fellow Hubbers, Just keep writing

If I can recall many years back in my high schools creative writing class, my teacher back then was the best. She use to always pick someone in the class who appeared to be sleeping on the desk all the time. She would make them stand up in the front of the classroom and come up with a topic to write about.

I'm writing this to help those people on hub to inspire anyone whose in need of topics or idea's to write about, not that I have an issue myself, cause I don't when it comes to idea's. Meaning I'm trying to make an attempt at helping motivate people to come up with brighter idea's, topics, or subject matter that someone may consider to be helpful. Since I've learned to think outside the box, this hub may be of assistance for those experiencing hub writers block.

Your just a Doorway away from your Next Bright Idea


A Poetic Perspective

Poetry for me became a sort of artful game, where I could literally jump into a hidden reality that never ever existed before, but through writing these new found realities of my mind, bright new radiant idea's would suddenly pop up like colorful butterflies do so unexpectedly, on some nicely weathered dreamy day. Each line allows for a differing view or perspective, but doesn't have the same rigid structure of a prose piece of literature.

It wasn't long before I was able to fill up an entire book with words I was gathering from all around me. I had consumed words in mass quantities from books, encyclopedia's, library's & dictionary's. I was determined to be something of an anomaly, by the time I reached adulthood, at least on the mental capacity level. I felt at one time or another that there truly wasn't a limit to how much a person can consume mentally in terms of worded vocabulary, & from literacy alone.

Today I enjoy writing on the web, for many reasons then one, but definitely to express my knowledge on differing subjects. If you have attained differing levels of learned experiences, knowledge as a whole on a particular subject, or just had some cool experiences in life. All these can make for a good hub idea to start from & will definitely make for a good way to generate hub content in written form.

I may try my hand on the poetic side soon to help demonstrate the skill I've had with words at one time or another. Let's hope this helps people a tad bit, that are in need of breaking free from that writers block they may be experiencing.

Images can spark Idea's


Idea's are up for Grab's

If your looking for idea's, well they're staring right at you, any word can instantly become a huge idea or images. Simply think of a word, any word for that matter. Then focus on it for a while, you may experience a rush of associated thought patterns that may race into the same field of this idea you thought of, but try to get them out your head until you can focus on making this idea concrete.

For example let's take the previous term I used so elegantly titled "Concrete". Use this word for now. Focus upon it for a second or two. Once you've got it down, break out a note pad and write it down, then try to think of how many other groupings of thoughts you can now associate with this term "Concrete".

OK, you can take a break, this is one of the skills my teacher taught us in our creative writing class, this was done each day at the start of school for the person standing in front of class, just before he or she would actually decide to quit trying to figure out what to write about.

Mind Map Example


Use of a Central Idea Works

Here's how my use of the term Concrete plays out:

Concrete is durable, but brittle to hold or to be braised by. Cars may be driven across it, sometimes it gets cracked by the blunt force of other objects, and pot holes may form within it's tightly packed structure. Concrete is hard, it appears to take the shape of any object that it's submerged in, or can form around objects it's spilled across.

This is just an example of how the idea can stem into other usages of the core topic that had originated. You can take the word itself and generate many terms from it's connected source as well. This techniques can be followed by the usage of idea mapping, or mind mapping. Mind Mapping is a technique of connecting trending terms that can be associated to the core central idea.

The image on the right demonstrates what any mind map can look like after fully worked out, the bubble at the center is actually the core idea, or term. This central idea has lead the person to multiple connected terms that stem from this core idea, leading them to have more thoughts to utilize in any way, shape or form they choose.

      Thanks Suzie, I been trying to create more and more hubs as time goes along. I hope this helps people looking for inspiration to develop new hub topics.

      Very good advice here. I find that one thought leads to another then, voila, a Hub is born. Great Hub - rated up and useful!
