Exemption from the "too little content" rule?

    I just recently started posting my first hubs, part of a group/series called 100_Worlds: One Hundred Word Fantasy Stories.

    I'm wondering if there's any way to actually publish a hub containing only a 100 word story. So far I've found the only way to publish them is to either add a relevant public domain image, or append a description/history of the story itself. Neither of these is much of a hassle; I'm just curious whether this requirement will be relaxed for users with higher hubscores or older accounts.

      Use a link capsule in each of the hubs to link your stories to each other. Either leave the automatic description of the hub you are linking to in the link capsule or write a short description of the other stories. That should bring your word count up somewhat.

      I have the same problem with poems.

      To give yourself some more content I'd add an introduction to the 100 word stories. Put it either before or after. Maybe even if you do an explanation to the story form, or put more than one per post if they do follow on from one another.  Are you calling these drabbles like they do in fandom?

      What's wrong with having to add a photo?  A Hub with only 100 words is going to be a bit bland without one, IMO.

      You can get lots of photos on Flickr - use the Advanced Search, click "creative commons" and "for commercial use".  Then all yo have to do is credit the photographer with a hyperlink to their photostream (I usually put the photo credits at the end). 

      You could use a RSS capsule with a feed of your other stories - it would also act as a kind of index to your other stories and encourage readers to browse.

      Or you could put three or four of the stories on one Hub, if they're related in some way.

    Don't worry about it. I always write short pieces, less than 100 words poetry, doesn't really matter as long as you add a pic.
