Should I keep my Hubs broken down into smaller 500-1000 words articles?
I have written on paper so far a story that spans close to ten thousand words, even though it is all one comprehensive story should I break it down, or do people not mind reading a long story if it's half decent?
Break it down to several parts. Doing so will help you achieve more views and make it easier for readers to scan through your work.
if you have 500-800 words, you can write in one hub. If more than 1000words, break them into 2 hubs so that you could bring yr readers to keep reading yr other interesting hubs. Hope my tips are useful.
Good advice here. 1000 words is probably the upper limit for a single page of writing on the web, just due to the way the pages are formatted here and how people generally read electronic content. With 10000 words, you will do your readers (and yourself) a favor by breaking it into multiple parts. Just link them up with one another so your readers can easily find the next page in the series.
It would be better to brake down your hubs, some people avoid reading too long hubs and look for concise information, in addition to that if it is a story, it can be in two hubs to create a second part just like movies.
Thank you everyone, this confirms what I was thinking...too long = less views. I appreciate all of your comments thank you very much!

what factors help you decide if a hub is too long? I know different styles of hubs based on topics and what not help determine how long it is going to be. I worry about what is to many words though.
