Where Do You Get Your Ideas?
From where do you draw inspiration for your hubs?
I, uhh...watch anime. And then give my opinion on the show or movie in question. As for how I choose what's next on my list of what to review, it's a mix of either what I'm currently interested in talking about, what's popular that I haven't yet given my input on, or what I've chosen at random. Ugh, late April is going to be a nightmare for me.
I think things up. I think about stuff up in my head all the time. I also get inspired by listening to other people.
My most creative phase has happened in deep delta wave sleep in the early morn (i. e. around 4 a.m.). The revelations surface when I awaken. Thus, perhaps it is not even my creativity or perhaps it is assisted by my subconscience...
I authored a learning theory that came to my conscience in this manner and it eventually became a book, titled Frames of Learning: Revelation Theory of Learning (RTL).
Most of my writing ideas come from experience, mainly the informative hubs. Some poetry hubs come out of creative thinking and observing people but most of the creativity is triggered by experience. When I say "experience" I'm referring both to professional and personal. I'm hoping to have more "experience" to draw from to reach 100 hubs. Or I'm actually going to have to start "thinking" to come up with ideas. :-)
I love cooking and baking so I write and post my hubs based on my experience. As for kids and health matters, I read from magazines and add in my own thoughts to them.
Most of the time it's an answer to a question. Someone asks me something multiple times and I realize I can write a detailed answer as a hub. Though I am frequently inspired to write hubs about subjects I think about a lot. I might be sitting somewhere and zone out entirely as I go over something in my head. Only at the end do I realize I should probably write it down.
I get ideas and write hubs about personal experiences, places that I travelled to, and mostly hubs about gardening which is my favourite past time or hobby. I write about things that might be of use to someone else like my language hubs. I did not realise that my Basic Kuwaiti Arabic language hub is very helpful to others until I read their comments and it inspired me to do one more hub about the Arabic language which I learnt by myself when I worked in Kuwait a few years back. At the moment, I am a bit stuck for ideas that is why, I have not written for a while.
I get my ideas from daily life. There are tons of ideas in daily life if you will just slow down and listen. Then sometimes I look back over my life and yes, even there I find some now-funny and sometimes-serious notions for hubs.
I tend to write about current interests and passions. For example, when I first started writing on HubPages, I was really into beadweaving and consequently, wrote a lot of articles about it. I keep an ongoing list of possible ideas so that I never have a shortage of inspiration when I'm in the mood to write.
