Can You Write Fiction On HubPages?
I want to write short stories but dont know whether this site is the right kind of format..
You can do that. I have also seen poems on here so short stories should not be a problem. Having said that, HubPages is indeed more focussed on writing articles but to a certain extent it also allows other content. It may just end up being popular and then you could earn money as well from the advertisements next to your short stories.
I've written a number of short stories for HubPages, some of which do get a lot of views. Unfortunately, none of them make very much money, and a few make none.
I write funny, opinion based articles. I haven't come across too many people who do this, but then again, I haven't been looking!
The majority of the articles I find on here, are the ones that are geared towards pulling in people, and trying to make money. It's people writing, "How to", articles and "news report", style hubs. There are quite a few people who don't seem to care what they write, as long as they write a lot of it.
I came across two different girls who wrote complaint articles last night. One complained about her husband never using the hamper for his socks. And the other wrote about how hard it is to find a job, strait out of college.
So the answer is "yes", you can write fiction.
I'd suggest that you write what you know the most about. Or simply write about whatever you want, within the hubpages parameters. Some people on here, write nothing but poetry. Some are all about tips, or reviews. I don't try to use other people's hubs as the standard by which I write mine. I rather be original, than just another face in the crowd.
I just thought up a new idea for how to write some interesting hubs. I won't share it, but it's a little goofy. It will involve me writing some non fictional stories. I asked a few of my followers what they thought of the idea, and they all liked it!
So if I can write the goofy things I write, and people care to read them, I'm certain you can write the way you want to as well. If in doubt... Run some of your ideas past your fans, and see what they think!

Do you write fiction story on HubPages?

I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories and poetry are not good, but they are not usually searchable or high market. I...

Hi, I am a young adult and juvenile fantasy writer and would like to write short stories to publish on Hubpages. Is this a good fit for Hubpages? I notice many of the articles under poetry, books and writing ask questions or do book reviews.

I'm not sure how I can contribute, I like writing fiction but the only thing I've ever felt confident about was my religious belief but even then, I haven't read the whole bible. I was a cook for years but I still don't feel like an expert. Do you only want people who write about facts. Thank you...

Hi! I thought of asking how many other people are in the same - rather difficult! - position, of struggling with words and taking journeys in their imagination so as to create nice new stories... I work as seminar lecturer and translator, but my works of fiction are by far more important for...

I write a lot of fiction and am having trouble getting views. I do write a few true stories but my heart is in writing fiction. I have recently wrote a continuous series titled, Out of the Dust. I have written eight parts to the story and I have a few followers, but how can I go about getting more...
