Well, I only have one creative writing hub right now, which you have already read, but I am planning to do more. It's just finding the time, and I have to be in the right frame of mind for that kind of writing, together with peace and quiet and some spare time which is longer than 5 minutes.....not freely available these days!!
Hello fellow writers, I love the opportunity of writing from my creative side in my hubs as well... started a novel on hubs and I have never written in this genre, so it is exciting to get feedback.
My writing experience has been screenplays and as I added to my profile today, I just made it through first round judging in the International Page Screenwriting competition... fingers crossed that I make it through quarter finals into finals.
I am so glad to have found this group of creative writers and will follow you to your hubs to read and comment... thanx
this is amazing, now i can follow other great writers! i hope anyone that ahs time will check out Alone-http://hubpages.com/hub/Alone-by-Starqueen113 which is about A snobby little princess who is suffering from memory loss due to the trauma of loosing her parents to a fire at the age of 5. She is forced to marry a childhood friend...But will she be saved by the childhood friend she can’t remember? Or killed by the one she does?
I'm Cinderella but prince charming is a jerk!-http://hubpages.com/hub/Im-Cinderella-but-Prince-Charming-is-a-Jerk
which is a great story me and my friend both wrote
It really pays to check out what going on in the forums. I am a big creative writer, but have been holding back on putting any of my work here due to I have not come across to many other CWs. This is great I would love feedback from other writers on my work, and would certainly return the favor to others.
there are many amazing creative writers on HP. following the category of writers, creative writing helps to find them, although they can be found in many categories. a few of my favorites, winsome degreek cosette green lotus chris A
I'm currently working on my own site to have a place for some of my creative writing, a slow process.. I have some of my poetry/prose here, but haven't published much of my 'creative' writing here. nice to see this thread.
I'm new to HubPages and have posted the first chapter of my project in progress, The MirrorMasters. It's a young adult fantasy novel. My hubs will pretty much be creative writing, and I'm planning to work on some short stories to publish here. It's wonderful to see that there are so many other creative writers here, and I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's work!
Welcome Lora! We want to develop Hub Pages into a great place for writers of all genres, but this particular forum thread will be devoted to promoting CW hubs. Good luck as you dive in the shallow end of Hub Pages. Do not be afraid to ask questions or seek advice. None of us are experts, but we are accumulating knowledge at a furious pace.
Thanks, Dobson! It's been fun so far, and I've been enjoying meeting everyone and participating in a community again. There is so much to learn, and I can't wait to learn it right along with all of you.
One question i've been wondering about is, do you all plan to publish chapters here of works that you eventually aim to submit to publishers or literary agents? On one hand, I can see that it would be a great way to get feedback and develop readership, and we'd all be helping each other improve our writing in the process of getting something ready for publication. On the other hand, I wonder how agents and publishers would view the fact that the work has already been published online.
Lora, i do not plant to try to publish anything I wirte here. This is for fun and some profit, but more to hone my writing skills and build relationships. There is a multitude of freelance people on here who can teach me so much!
Lora Palmer, it is prudent not to publish chapters online if you want to see those stories commercially published. The material can stay in the search engines for a long time. Also keep in mind the risk of plagiarism and other forms of duplication.
There is an important rule in story writing that it is better to show than explain. Here, you have many points, observations, and conclusions. But you do not let the characters speak directly with one another, and so the reader does not get the chance to "settle in" and create their own feel for your story.
So to turn this into a story, you would want to build it up carefully, laying out the background, describing the setting in a poetic language, then allow the characters to interact through dialog, body language and such. Then you move the story forward by making your points, moving on to the next scene, and finally towards its conclusion.
This hub has story potential, it would probably be 2-3 times as long.
You can definitely write, so you shouldn't have too much trouble.
I have a few creative writing hubs. In fact they have kind of distracted me away from the novel I'm writing and the old man keeps nagging me to spend more time on the novel. I'm quite smitten with my hub created character zoidberg, a woman hating dog and am seriously thinking of putting together a series of short but linked stories into a novel form and submitting them for publication. I would welcome feedback. Obviously, he is an idea in embryo but fete worse than death is my current favourite.
I've read this - it's well written, but sounds a bit more like a hilarious essay than a short story or novel. It is a bit "elaborate" for a work of fiction, especially the opening. That represents a challenge from an editing perspective.
Interesting input. Obviously, I will need to re-write the hubs into chapter form with some linear themes to link each to a coherent plot. I don't know whether you have read any of the Adrian Mole novels but I was rather thinking of that kind of format. My style (such as it is) seems to suit a radio play type formats (Adrian Mole became famous as a novel when it was run on Radio 4) You've given me some food for thought, thanks!
I'm new here at Hubpages.. I'm a Published Poet since 1995. I've published my first poetry book in 2007 through Publish America Publishing. I would like to introduce myself since I'm new here. I love making new friends and sharing poetry. My name is: Pamela Holyfield. Nice to meet you, I'm looking forward in getting to know you. Please feel to post your writings and sharing them. I'll give you my point of view in a honest way. Thanks for having me here with you. I go by " islandgirl2 ", in case any of you are interested in knowing me and what I write. I have written some short stories, but they're not Published yet. I need to find the right Publisher for this work. If you can share with me of anyone who does Publish short stories, please let me know if you are allowed to. Thanks so much and God bless you and your's...
