I'm just throwing it out there, but I kinda think a sort of sister-site with fiction (short-stories, poems, etc) would be a neat idea.
I've been trying for two years to get HP to put together a QUALITY fiction section. With Kindle and Ipad and all the writer-friendly aps for cheap publication, and with the writer lure that HP has, it could be awesome and popular.
The American Idol of online fiction.
Not like they don't have all the talent they need in every aspect of it right here already. All the technical people, all the literary qualifications, etc.
I'd even run it for them if they'd respond to my suggestions in these threads or the two or three emails I've sent. Eventually they'll see it, or someone else will see it and, with a little "re-invention of the wheel" pull the creative writers off.
Well, I'm glad someone agrees with me. I think a fiction section would be a great addition, since I know personally, I love writing, but articles and I don't get along.
I know I'd be much more active if I could post some of my short stories, or poems.
You can still post your stories and poems - a lot of writers here do.

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...

It is in HP's interests to reassess the policy about DMCAs. For years we've been told hubbers are responsible for filing DMCAs about individual copyright infringements. But I've looked at the DMCA documentation and...

Let's support our own efforts by reading each other's short stories, then leaving a comment at the bottom of the hub (pro or con). I have three stories posted at jfrankdunkin.hubpages.com. They are,...
