hey hubberinos. i was just curious. can any of you tell me if storyimp.com is a great place to publish short stories or not? i know i can probably do a lot of short stories here, but i'd rather diversify each site i write on with different things, so it'll give people reasons to read my stuff on other sites. i was thinking about writing short stories again, but they'll be exclusive on that site only. however before i do that, i was just going to ask all of you what do you think about the site first. does it work?
I would be concerned about copyright. How can you protect your work so that noone takes your stuff to a publisher?
yeah, that's true. however, so are you saying i'd be better off publishing short stories on another site like say snipsly or xomba? i have accounts on those too, but im still struggling on what to write on those.
Steven, creative writing is so personal, it can't be reproduced but so easily stolen. What if someone uses your writing as a starting point and was able to sell the story to a publisher? I think you have to be protective of your work. If you have short stories, consider going to a literary agent.
really? hmm...i'll definitely have to consider that then. thanks flightkeeper, for the tip. how do you find literary agents anyway? do i just use google i take it to look them up?
From what I understand, literary agents prefer that you've had some work published in a magazine to start. If there are any writers groups near where you live, I would suggest that you be part of it so that they can give you some ideas of which literary agent to go to and how to write the query letter.
hmm...good point. okay. i think i'll look into that then. thanks flightkeeper for the great advice. I appreciate it.

Hi, I was just wondering if hubpages is a good place to publish short stories? If so, what kind? Would there be an interest in Christian short stories?

I try unsuccessfully every day, and I need to enter more bookmarks at this site owned by a hubber. I can't remember his name. An answer comes up that they cannot locate it.

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...

The reason behind writing stories is to stimulate dreamy part of your mind. Each person sees the story using his own imagination. So far I am able to come up with 13 short stories that was a big experience...
