Would it be better to pull a lengthy short story and republish it in parts?
When fairly new to Hubpages, I posted a couple of very lengthy short stories, one of which was over 5k words. I was wondering if I should pull the stories and re post them in shorter parts to make them easier to read, but I am not sure if that would be a wise move or not. Any thoughts?
I wouldn't advise it. Once you post content its never a good to re-post. In the future it might be better to break it up if the word content takes you over 700 words. Honestly 400 words is my mental limit before I stop absorbing what I'm reading.
'm getting towards the end of a story, which, so far, has five (5) chapters, but apart from some good friends, no one is reading it. Maximum is four (4) Ha Ha. But as those readers are extremely capable writers themselves, I am still a happy man.
I know what you mean Twilight. If a reader is into shorts, like I am, you really don't have a problem with the length. I have just noticed a lot of writers publish theirs in parts and was wondering if it would hurt me on HP if I did the same?
I think so, people have no time in this fast speeding and fast living age, short story seems to do much better, break it up and each part finish with some question or thrilling part to follow in to attract readers to come back:)
