Is it possible to publish a short story in here? I have a tiny and funny one I wrote that i've just translated from Italian
I would imagine it's possible...theoretically it's possible to publish anything you want to here; just be advised: if you want to do anything else with it like submit it to a literary 'zine or for an anthology, a lot of them require that the work be unpublished.
Indeed it is possible. Be mindful, however, that if the content is duplicative it will be penalized.
I don't see any reason why you can't publish a short story. After all, a lot of poetry is on hubpages.
I published some fiction I wrote as well as peotry. Sure you can publish it and there will be people that will read it.
Could I ask for a quick favor? Could someone proofread it please? It's just 20 lines long... normally I wouldn't ask for this but short stories like these need to be almost perfect in grammar or they're not worth anything

I have published a few poetry hubs and one very short story with a sting in the tale http://hubpages.com/_sharethehublove/hu … ction_site the short story gets a few hits now and again but nothing major, it can get no hits one month and 50-60 the next.
publish your stories, and try it for yourself, you never know until you try, good luck.....jimmy
I like to write short memoirs. A bit like stories but not fictional.
I really loved your story. I am just going to give you a few rewrite suggestions on the first paragraph.
"So it's probably not as bad as they say, you think to yourself" .....I would drop (So)....It is.......
"But then after a second, just one single second, you'll start feeling the pain". I would not start with a conjuction.....I would rewrite However after a second,..........
So you try to think of something else, (to distract) in some way. .....to distract the pain.....I would either drop so from the front or attach it to the preceding sentence.
I would rewrite (mostly just syntax)
You think of the green grasslands of the Kahlo and the docile animals quietly grazing there(.); (Y)ou think of the boundless ocean of Bolm, wondering how many secrets its deep and spellbound bed is hiding(.) (Y)ou think of the women in the Desert of Hursh, (with) all of their seductive dances, and the liqueurs of their men that would wipe just anything off your mind(.)
then you don't think of anything, really anything, because the pain is too strong and you won't feel like thinking anymore; and then... (I would try revising but I don't want to change the meaning).....Finally you don't think.................
I really loved your story so I hope these suggestions don't seem overly nit-picky. I am not an expert on syntax and structure. I am making a few suggestions based on what I see.

Sometimes I burn myself out drawing inside the lines of science. I need to exercise my creative side. I seem to get blasted with really great sci/fi fantasy ideas in the shower, at the gym, before bed... but never see...

I truly love the short story, and often wonder why there aren't more authors in the genre. Is it a lack of interest by the readers, or the writers, or both? Am I wrong, and why? Any thoughts on this subject would be...

I have started writing more short stories recently, but always seem to struggle with the tags. Anyone got any suggestions for the best sort of tags to use on fiction hubs?

I'm just wondering if the Hub would be a good site for me to post short stories I write or is there a better site I should be using. It seems as if the Hub is more for just opinions.
