Can I Write a Chaptered Story on HubPages?
In short: could I write out each chapter in it's own hub?
You can absolutely write a chaptered story on HubPages. On the right of your Hub in edit mode, there is a section called grouping. You can group your Hubs together by chapter, so that there will be an arrow at the bottom of your first Hub/chapter that will lead to the next one. You could also create a link at the bottom of your Hub that leads to your next Hub/chapter.
If you want to rearrange the groups, i.e., you don't write your chapters in order and they need to be rearranged, you can go to your account page and click on "Groups". Simply drag and drop your Hubs in the order that you would like them grouped and click "save changes."
Yes you can write everything you want to share with us! But hub-pages like uniqueness, keep in mind.
Yes a lot of hubbers do that and their stories are very interesting to say the least.
Agree with Robin and would add that your could create RSS /latest/ feeds that you could add at the bottom of your hub chapters.
This could have a number of advantages:
1. each time a new hub is created, all hubs will be updated with the latest chapter.
2. you can manipulate the RSS feeds with tags and thereby order the chapters if you are not producing them in order.
3. the RSS feeds can be added to RSS feed sites and thereby push your chapters to a wider audience than just hubpages.
Be aware that your story is not likely to obtain a great readership and that it will be difficult to monetise. That is unless you undertake an inordinate amount of promotion.
You might be better creating an e-Book and publishing yourself.
If the RSS feed idea is of interest then you can find details on how to achieve this from my RSS hubs or those that have been produced by a number of good hubbers.

How well do poems and short stories do on HP?I noticed a while back somewhere that HP staff had mentioned that creative writing such as poems and short stories don't do as well as informational pieces. I'm curious to know about the earnings of some of the people who publish a lot of these. Do you...

Can you write a full-length novel on Hubpages?I have seriously been contemplating on posting my novel on Hubpages. My problem is, I'm not exactly sure how many words should be put into a Hub. I have my chapters broken in half at the time, roughly 2500 words per 1/2 chapter. Would this be too long...

OK so I finally did it- I published chapter 1 of my book ( I have 4 chapters written so far) - and I would love constructive criticism- both good and bad.I started this project a few months ago, and finally decided to make hubs out of the chapters, It's rather baring my soul here but I figure this...

Hi Guys,I'd like to post a book I wrote - chapter by chapter. I notice hp has LetterPile now, but, of course, it's no guarantee that they will like my writing. It's a sci fi story.Illustrations are difficult and one needs visual to make it attractive (on a web page anyway). Each chapter is about...

Can I write a Hub sharing the first few chapters of my novel or would that be self-promo?Of course, I would only share the first few and if enough people were interested in more, I would share the rest. Would that be frowned upon in the Hub community?
