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.

The Medium platform sounds great. Writers' income does not come from advertising (yay!) but from a chunk of the membership fees. But here is the catch: As a non paid up member you are only allowed to read three articles per month for free. After that, if you are interested in a topic and want...

I want to write a lot of hubs (compared to what I wrote last year) this year. But the main hurdle is that I feel like I ran out of ideas or cannot create good ideas for new hubs.I come with some ideas, but they end up being too general or not good for online search. I try to think of more specific...

The "I can't move or talk" nightmare, what does it mean?Have you ever had the nightmare where something or someone is holding you down and no matter how hard you try, you cannot move, and when you try to scream for help nothing comes out? Believe it or not this is a very typical...

I have been writing articles and flash fiction stories on HubPages but am unsure what topics are the most popular ones. Also, is it better to write in a specific niche or to try to write in a wide array of topics? Thank you

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.

How do you generate ideas to write about?For example, I take words and look up their definition. Any idea that pops into my head I write about, or try to form a story around. Sometimes I will take latin words and work them into a story, too. How do you form ideas for articles or hubs?
