    I am writing some short stories for the upcoming contest and I must say that I am having a great time doing it. After writing non-fiction for so long this has been quite fun.

    Now I am wondering of those of you that write fiction here at HubPages - do you let the readers know at the beginning that this is a fictional piece? Or do you write that in your disclaimer at the end? Since I am doing such totally different story lines ( I wrote 3 last night!) I am just using keywords as I would any other hub and adding appropriate capsules.

    Any advice would be appreciated hubbers!

    I don't have any fictional hubs up any more. I didn't write disclaimers. If, for example, people really did believe that you can have Dragon's living with you (at home) then I figured that something was massively wrong with their wiring, you know?

    Forget about the small print ... just write for the joy of it Dorsi. You'll do just fine smile

    I agree qirh frogdropping. I think you can let the readers interpret the work for itself. Good luck!

    I think that they have to be posted in the creative writing section, for the competition, not sure but when I read this that is what it looks like to me. I suppose that someone might not know it was fiction but that should give them a clue. Wishing you good luck for the contest Dorsi.
