    Is it a good idea to write stories on Hubpages?

    If i were to write little stories on hubpages that me and my friends came up with, would people read them? Is it even a good idea?

    Provided that such stories are not pornography and sadism,...
    Good luck

    As se7en2t indicated, make sure you all follow the HubPages Terms of Service (TOS) and you should be fine. Several authors publish stories and book chapters here on the site. New authors MAY even have their stories selected as HubNuggets Wannabes - check the HubPages Forums front page and look at the stickied entries at the top under HubNuggets. And look at the Leaning Center: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/hubnuggets/

    Best wishes and Merry Christmas!

    Yes it's not sharing your insight or your ideas but also it's a good outlet for stress.

    I think if you are just looking for an audience to read your writing and maybe even critique it, then yes, it is definitely a good idea to submit stories on Hub Pages.

    But, if you want to make money or get Adsense clicks, I would guess that stories probably aren't the best method.

    I could be completely wrong though.

    Yes, I believe writing stories on Hubpages is a good idea.  I love reading short stories.  Publishing your short stories here in HP gives you a good feeling that your friends and others will read your story.  Try it, you might like it.  But as some people here say, if your purpose here in HP is to earn money, then there is no money in that.  But, if that is not the case.. then go ahead, write write write.

    Have a nice day,

    If you seek an audience, it is probably a good place, but if you envision a career in writing short stories then I recommend that you start submitting to magazines whether online or in print. You can find a huge list sorted out by genre in Duotrope.com. Otherwise, if you consider honing your skill a bit through joining workshops, you can cast a look at www.critters.org.
