Writing On Hubpages And Hubpages Contests

Updated on August 20, 2012

I Actually Was a Woman Before I Started This

Dedicated to All You Guys On The Same Train

There's this thing called hubbalicious

It’s making my head hurt something vicious

It all started out so innocently

What’s going to become of me?

Thoughts of writing haunt my dreams

I cannot break free or so it seems

Every day finding something new to write

What if I can’t – Good GOD what a fright!

Do you think I’ll ever again be the same

Or will I keep hubbing until I'm insane?

How did I get myself in this mess

I seem to be obsessed I must confess!

Yes, I do have another whole life

I work, I mush, and I am a wife

Don't get me wrong – I'm not complaining

It's just that of late, my brain I'm straining

So many topics and that 'in it to win'

I need to remember to relax and grin

Life is short - I'll keep trying my best

To give it my all but then give it a rest

After all, it's the writing and pals that matter

Instead of worrying, I'll enjoy the chatter

My head is aching, my wrists are a mess

But I know I can do this and with finesse!

When the month's done I may be "famous"

Or I may just be thought a big ignoramus

Thanks for the ride, folks, I'd best get back

To thinking on subjects and keeping on track

If I seem distant and not as succinct

It’s because I am tired – I can barely think

Promise I’ll be back with my usual decorum

Post contest I promise to rehit the forum

Those of us who chose are in this together

Through thick and thin and nasty weather

Good luck to you all my friends of the hubs

Hoping for fingers we've left, not stubs!

Day 5 and counting….Lovingly, Audrey

      Very witty, my dear. HubPages is addictive. I can attest to that. I still have a list of thirty topics I want to write Hubs about but I am going to make myself stop so I can get my books done. I'll be checking in on you though. Thanks!

      Katie - you are too hilarious! Did you see Holle's hub - hers was hysterical! I think I outdid myself this week as I think I have done 42 hubs (still have to publish them on the right day) - and hoping to be able to crawl back next week and start the recipes! Holy toledo! Thanks so much for the support and all I can do is do what I can. I think 5 per day though is kinda sorta pushing it for any of us!

      I am glad that I am not the only one anymore who has hubaddiction. I wrote a hub about this treadful illness and I still looking for the anti-hub-biotic tablets.

      Thank you so much for your lovely email that really was kind but you didn't have to apologize. I wouldn't have held against you.
