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.

I am just curious to see if it's a good idea to write short stories on here or if writing different parts of a story and then publishing it? I write a couple of different things but I love to write short stories. Any suggestions? I want to succeed in my writing.

Write a Hub that is outside your comfort zone in 2015. (If you normally write informative articles, try a short story or poem. If you're a creative writer, consider a tutorial or explanation Hub.)This above sentence was copied from the Weekly hub news we received today. I started writing on...

For those who follow my hubs you are aware most of what I write is silly stuff. But I have always been interested in writing short stories. I have a few short stories I have written of late that is not humorous at all but lean more toward the dark side of my personality.I am wondering should I post...

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.

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 for me.
