I just read a post by Marisa and she said traditional publishing houses wont touch anything which was previously published online. Okay, I get that. I can deal with that - except...does this count if it's incomplete? I'm working on writing one of my hubs into a full-length book - should I take it down since I want to send it to a Publishing House when I finish? Basically my hub is a primitive outline...
If you are converting a 1500 word idea into a 60k to 120k word project, it will no longer be the hub. Frankly, I'd be surprised if more than a line or two was left from the hub by the time you finished your revisions etc.
You may want to be aware that ideas - as opposed to manifest expressions - are not protected by copyright. If I was serious about a project, I would consider obtaining private critique instead of posting the outline here.
Not quite sure what you mean....the hub reads like a short story not an A. B. C. 1.2.3. type outline. So, anyway, I might want to consider removing the hub? It makes sense.
I was referring to that you called it a "primitive outline." Now that I understand better, I am more in line with what Shadesbreath says. I think that publishing short excerpts can be a useful way to receive some feedback, and there is no reason to be getting overly cautious either.
