I know HubPages is not a place to write fiction. But I've been wanting to write a novel or series of short stories for a while now. Is it it okay to use Hubpages to write stories? I was going to use each hub as one chapter or something. I'm not trying to get them published on here of course -- just want to use the editor.

Yes, it is perfectly ok to do creative writing on HubPages, and we even have categories for it. As always, you can take your work down whenever you like if you want to publish somewhere else later.
Keep in mind that most publishers do not want work that has been previously published, including being published online
I'm "NOT" trying to get them published on HubPages. I just want to use the capsules to write words & the website as an online storage. I'll later transfer them to my computer most likely.
I don't currently have Microsoft Word cause my computer had issues & it was deleted. I just think it would be easy to organize on here for now.
if you are keeping them in unpublished hubs, something like google docs or as a draft in an email account is a more functional and secure option.
Yes, absolutely this is ok as well. You can create unpublished drafts of any kind of content you like.
Just do it.
You don’t need permission.
No one is going to delete them. Its a cool editing program and compared to other programs specifically for books, its a cheap alternative. I can see the appeal.
Blogger.com is also a pretty eaay to use site if you want alternative.
Just be aware that HubPages is a major target for thieves. You'll probably find your chapters being copied on some Chinese or Russian sites, and there won't be anything you can do about it. That's not a huge issue if you're just publishing on HubPages, but if you ever hope to get it published as a novel, it's a big problem.
Of course, there's nothing to stop you writing the chapters as Hubs, and then not publishing them. Or write and publish them on Blogger, where they're unlikely to get stolen.
In my opinion, the best alternative is a critique site like CritiqueCircle.com - then you could also get helpful critiques from other writers on them. I know it can be tough seeing your work critiqued, but frankly no writer should ever publish before getting feedback from others.

Hi everyone,I'd love to hear how you are using HP for your SEO efforts. Any tips or suggestions? I run a celebrity gossip site and use links from my hubs to feed traffic. I also have so e customized ads that I created from Bannersnack that are linked to a few of my hubs here. Thanks!

What keeps you using Hubpages over other similar sites?I have seen a lot of people with concerns about Hubpages in one form or another, but I wonder what inspires people to stick with it. Personally, while I would prefer to make money faster, I like that I don't because I see it as a challenge. I...

Does anyone else have issues using the app for writing responses or anything else on HP? It will not work in landscape mode for me. It also zooms in too far on a text field and does not pan over when I type.

Is it possible to create a full time income using hubpages?All the notes I see are from people making $200 a month or something in that range. To replace my income, I would need to make a lot more than that. Is it possible?
