Do most writers actually write the article in the hub or in another software first...such as word?
What are most hubs written in? Since Microsoft word is totally tortured when you try to copy and past in the hub. Loosing all formating, indents, bold, centering, etc.
I write the basic content in Word because it checks my spelling and grammar. I do all of my formatting once I've pasted it into the hub. I usually put one paragraph per text capsule so I can move them around and make everything line up properly when I add in my photo and link capsules.
I write every article directly into the hub. No word at all. HP has everything I need to write, spell check, many capsules etc. to do many things. Thanks HubPages !!
I write my articles in Ms Word. It gives me much flexibility in spell checking, but why i mostly use it is because i keep a backup of every hub i write. i have a folder named Hubpages that i use for backup, that is until i get a better application to do my articles backup.
I often write at least part of the hub with pen and paper on a train and then correct and transfer this material when putting together the hub online. My work calls for me to travel a lot so this works out well.
I too write everything in MS Word, easier to spot spelling or gramar errors. it is easy enough to paste into capsules and decide which paragraphs to paste in each to line up with photos etc.
Also at the bottom of each article I keep notes (links) of various videos or sites I've used for research, where I got the photos from and a copy of the summery. Its all there then If I ever decide to remove something from HP and publish it elsewhere it is easier to do.
I like to keep a copy of all my hubs.
I use MS Word. I feel more comfortable using it. I simply cut and paste it on the HP capsule and do last minute changes and formatting.
I use both and don't do much formatting in Word since it doesn't port over well as you noted. It ends up being more like Notepad with a spellchecker and grammar assistance. I like the synonym function which helps make an article read more clearly. Sometimes I write in the Hubpages editor but it doesn't allow for a Canadian English dictionary so I would say that Word is my primary editor. Since Hubpages is a very basic presentation format, it is wise to just keep it simple and forget about trying to be "correct" in your hub design.
I use Open Office, saved as a Word.doc for my recipe hubs. Then as for my others I am now using a Tablet and doing it directly on line. The pics are my own and use Zoom browser for sizing to fit on the hub then downloaded and used when and where needed.
I write my articles in Word first because I feel comfortable doing it there.
I write everything in MS Word before I cut and paste my articles into HP. I do this for a couple of reasons. First, I like to check my sentence structure and spelling. Then I go over the article and tweak it a bit. Finally, I then save my document. After I have done the above and I'm actually on HP that is when I check spelling again, re format where I need to, add pictures, etc. I imagine there is no one size fits all in how writers get their stories published, rather it is what works best for the author.
I usually outline it on paper and then put in the sections as a kind of outline on Hub. I'll mostly write it on Hub thereafter

Can you write an article in MS Word then paste it to HubPages?Could you do that with the text when you want to create a new Hub?

Recently, there was a thread of someone complaining about Hub of the Days lacking amazing writing skills. Their complaint stated the Hubs being selected were because they were niche driven and 'how too's' instead of stellar writing from the soul. The day he posted that, it was my hub that was...

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

I'm looking for a sentence or two that are obviously spun from an article spinner program. I've been told they are easy to pick out, but want a few solid examples please.
