I had a dream about fruits and vegetables the other day, and it helped me think of a bunch of articles that I'll be writing this month.
Does anybody else get ideas when they sleep? If not, when do your topic ideas usually come to you? Do you think of them at random times, or use keyword tools to research popular topics?
I have very long and incomplete lists which in fact I never seem to get around to referring to.
I have a lot of lists as well, Pandora. Lists and half-written articles. Sometimes I get bored with a topic and can't seem to finish writing about it. I hate when that happens. I envy some of my friends; they can write about anything, even topics they find dreadfully boring. Sometimes I wish I had that type of discipline.
Always...My stuff comes from all that I ever dreamed of!
I have dreams and write them down if they're any good. Thoughts will come to me when doing other things, and I make sure to jot them down too.
Some articles I'll write non-stop until I'm just about done, save for some editing. Others, just like Sunnyglitter, I'll write and I just can't get everything I want down. Eventually I just end up abandoning the article. It seemed like a good idea, but it was different actually writing about it.
One thing I want to get into the habit of doing is actually recording my thoughts allowed. Sometimes I do that, and afterwards I usually wish I had recorded it. Then it would make it easier to pull ideas from when writing. I find that talking about something actually helps me write.
I dream vividly ( when I do get some sleep) and I can always remember their content when I wake up. I tend to scribble down ideas from my dreams and they have helped form nuggets for stories , poetry and even hubs now.
I used to keep a small notebook but now record the dream /ideas onto my iphone notes app as I always have my phone charging on the bedside cabinet!
I also dream pretty vividly but forget most of the stuff.. i have had some lovely poetry come to me and then I just cant get past a few lines .. working on it seems some how contrived and unnatural.. I am too lazy to getup in the night and write it down
I agree with Habee. I have caught myself writing hubs in my sleep. Or waking up with the inspiration to get out of bed and write one. (Which is why I am up now.) I just posted my third day hub for my 30/30 hub challenge. I am still running a hub behind, but hope to make up for it soon.
Oh my, honestly my entire dreams are great subjects for hubs . Anyway, yes, I do get inspiration for hubs in my dreams, mainly because I dream about many different topics.
I recently wrote a hub mentioning 5 reasons to take your shoes off before you enter your room or house, and thought the concept, 5 reasons to do something instead of 5 tips, 5 steps, or a how-to guide was good. So last night around 5AM I half-woke up, and had an idea that I thought it was perfect for a hub in that format, but I was too damn tired to write it down. Now I have no idea what it was
I have dreamed up a good idea for a hub but more often dream of work. Whenever my husband tries to wake me up, I'll usually tell him to hold on untill I take this order, or I've gotta count inventory. It can get annoying and very unrestful.

How do I get over 1,000 views across all of my articles? I know you told me many times to write, and write until I get up to 50 or 70 articles. How exactly do I know what to write or what to research? How do I expect to...

I had a dream several times over about a year. I was in my yard and was attacked by a lion. I always won the fight. No idea what it meant. Pretty strange.

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?
