      Hello Seeker7,

      Thanks for sharing and the vote.

      I sometimes get excited about a topic and then think, "Wait a minute, I don't know anything about this subject". It is then time for a reality check.

      Topics that as you say, give a buzz of enthusiasm, are much easier to write. Sometimes my fingers can fly across a keyboard when it is a topic I enjoy.

      Thank you so much for your comment and I am glad you found it helpful.

      What an excellent hub and some fabulous ideas. Sometimes I'm ok for ideas at other times I feel totally dried up. I maybe get get bits and pieces of an idea - but for me, unless there is a buzz of enthusiasm, then the subject doesn't work. Your ideas have triggered quite a few in my mind - and yes I'm buzzing!!!

      Great hub + voted up and shared!
