For example to you set aside a certain amount of time to write?
sort by best latest
I tend to agree with you Alastar. It flows much more easily when relaxed. If I thought I had to write x amount of words per day I would quit. It would become to much like work or a chore. The words come so much more easily when it is spontaneous.
This also sounds familiar. I have often had the whole hub just pop into my head fully formed. All I have to do is write it down. They tend to be the best too. How interesting.
Sounds like a workable plan.
I had a message through a medium on this one from James Stewart,(I think you know him) he asks, 'Want my old Mae West?'
lol that is an image that I won't forget any time soon. I must say. It sounds very familiar to my own experience.
I second Effer's answer! We are in that row boat together! She sinks, I sink. We need to get to shore, she's rowing! :)
Ha ha sunshine, seems like we are all rowing and going around in circles. It is fun though.
Hi Jackie, I think I understand what you mentioned. Write when you can. So do you have a predetermined idea about how many hubs you should be publishing? As you mention. 'Falling behind in publishing'.
This also sounds similar to my experience. Seems we all have a lot in common in terms of organisation.
I have a very similar process as well. I write when the inspiration hits, although I would like the inspiration to "hit more often!"
Do you complete a hub before moving on to another one, or do you have a few draft/unfinished ones going?
That's very interesting. For every hub I post. I write about 3 or 4 that I do not post for whatever reason. Maybe I don't think they are suitable for hubpages and so publish them elsewhere.
There are so many elements to maintaining this online presence. It is important to get the balance right. The time commitment seems to actually increase the more hubs we produce. How weird.
I'm really happy I discovered online writing. It represents a stream of income drawing on something I enjoy doing, which is writing. And contrary to many in the community now, I think HP is doing everything to help its writers.
2 or 3 per week seems like a good level of output.
I have written 3 in a day when I first joined hubpages. I seem to have slowed down quite a lot recently, trying to figure out the best use of my writing time.
That sounds so familiar. There a re so many elements to this hubpages malarkey that it is a wonder we get anything else done. But it is fun.
I can relate to your description. There are several interesting things to do daily and it can become a little distracting deciding what to do first.
Where do you get your ideas? Do you keep a list(s)? I have a short list of ideas that should keep me busy for a few weeks, but I don't know what I'll do when I have finished my list. I have my fingers crossed that I will keep coming up with ideas.
I do the same thing concerning thinking up new ideas and must have 50+ half written hubs. I will get around to writing them fully if I run out of ideas. My difficulty is that I have so many ideas and so little time.
Interesting comment. I can see how that would be helpful.
Lol that is a classic answer. The wife is of course completely right. As always.
That is a very interesting approach, that I recognise and can relate too.
