I joined hubs mostly so i could get my fiction out there. Does anyone else write a lot of fiction?
i have written a few creative writing hubs, but i am afraid to put any of my books i am working on. thieves, you know. (not at HubPages but outsiders
I have not done much of that yet but I might.
Does poetry count? It is based on truth, but not what you'd call factual. I also have one short story which is fiction.
The majority of my hubs are fiction. I don't earn a lot in Adsense, but that is not the reason I joined. I enjoy fiction and it is a lot of fun.
For some examples you should check out dohn121 here on hubpages. I think he has the best collection of fiction on this site.
I write more non-fiction than fiction on HP but one of my books in production is fiction and I removed 3 parts of that book from HP due to publication. must65gt, Dohn121 are a couple of great examples.
You are great fiction writers too! Everyone knows both of you and you are truly loved and admired.
@Dave-Just to hear it means a lot. Seriously, thank you.
I am writing a series of stories told to me by someone else. I just started, but I also plan to write a variety of other hubs.
Your first story is impressive!
I don't do it regularly but I have done a couple of things. I am currently doing a series mixing historical letters with some fictional scenes.
I've done the odd bit of fiction just for fun. I've also done 'tongue in cheek'(that sounds explicit!) romantic serial called 'Coffee'. I publish another episode if someone bothers to comment on the last one. I got to episode 3 and the comments stopped for well over a year but I now need to publish episode 5 (in time for Valentines Day). Who knows if I'll ever complete it?
Fiction on hubpages won't make you rich but it is nice interacting with your audience!
well, just came home with another cup of coffee, ric, so you know I'm waiting for episode 5. I want clive to find true love.
Hi rebekah - I'm on the case I promise - I'm not sure about true love. Perhaps a big disaster ending with the appartment block collapsing or a murder - Jean Claude lying in a pool of blood? No, just kidding - I think true love and instant coffee sounds better!
life is fiction = depending on your point of view - it is all fiction! so enjoy! if you think you're writing factual stuff, look at it very, very closely! (my humble opinion)
Some of mine are fiction but a lot or nonfiction. I will be getting into writing more short stories soon. I already have on brewing in my head but I want to finish editing my novel before I write the short story Welcome to hubpages by the way karlbot. Enjoy writing your fiction on here! I'll be watching for it myself. I love good fitcion
I don't write fiction on my hubs. A lot of people would say what I write on the forums is fiction But there are several who have great fiction, dohn has been mentioned but manlypoetryman, crazdwriter, tantrum, invictus, poppablue, gosh those are off the top of my head, that I read. There's a lot more...
aaaaa gosh Flightkeeper you made me blush when you mentioned my name and you write fiction on the forums? Where? I wanna see lol just kidding.
You're a good writer Crazd. Have you got the book from neneoromunina(sp?) in final form?
umm...no not yet it is taking a lot longer than I thought. i sreiously think I need someone withe a whip telling me to work because some days I just don't feel like editing the darn thing but I am on page 113 finally...of 196 pages
Oh, I define poetry as part of fiction cause it's creative.
Thanks i don't think it is since I started last month but thanks for the encouragment. I will keep you guys updated most definitely especially when I finish. I'll run into the forums screaming on the top of my virtual lungs
@ Charlie - definitely NOT Kosher, more like Sweet Mixed, or my granny's best relish! Glad to see you back, my friend.
Also check out Enelle Lamb - and ME! I write fiction, too!
Seriously, though, you could also look at theazorean, as well - she writes historical fiction.
I write a little bit of fiction, poetry and humor mostly. I like it when I see some authors publish bits of their book projects, I might do that in the future....
I have tried but fiction does not make any money. Its fun but for all the work involved in writing what can you sell? This is not to say that one just writes for money but its nice when you can kill two birds with one stone.
I'm posting the first draft of my vampire novel in addition to the other stories I've posted.
But I agree with a previous poster that fiction very rarely makes money. Even Sherrilyn Kenyon, a well known author once told someone that non-fiction was the best way to make money with writing.
I've written a few short stories as hubs. They score ok, and the one about my mother in law's diamond ring actually made some money.
Is there an upper limit for hub wordcount? I have a couple of sci-fi short stories that I'm tired of trying to get published conventionally. I was thinking of turning them into hubs but they're pretty long.
Hi - you can split them and post as parts or chapters; then add links at the end of each hub to the next one in the series or all in the series. Remember when arranging it as a hub that people read differently on a computer to a book. They need places to pause more frequently, and also a few images might help.
If you really want to publish it yourself you could go to a site that will publish for you either on line or in the format of your choice. Not talking about vanity press here I mean sites like the one with a woman's name. Search for a hub on this for more info I am sure someone must have written one.
Good luck with this.
I posted a 60,000 word novel with no trouble. I was immediately informed by all 7 billion world inhabitants that doing such was a poor idea however.

I'm not sure how I can contribute, I like writing fiction but the only thing I've ever felt confident about was my religious belief but even then, I haven't read the whole bible. I was a cook for years but I still don't feel like an expert. Do you only want people who write about facts. Thank you...

Over the years, I've often been told that the things I write in fiction are the things I think and believe. Nothing could be further from the truth. If I have a murderer as a rogue, I do not draw on my own experience. What I do is read endless books on the topic and then insert that knowledge when...

Which do you find easier to write: fiction or nonfiction?Do you write both or just one in your hubs?

Do you prefer to write fiction or non-fiction?

Which do you feel produces a better piece, writes resulting from real experiences and events from the author’s life though they may be hidden in a cloak of fiction or writes that are purely fiction having no associations to the authors real life or experiences and why?

I know it sounds cliche, but when I choose to write fiction, not necessarily my views, I worry that I'll be judged. It is fiction, but does anyone else struggle with this?
