Hello lovely readers,
I wanted to talk about the reason I have been MIA lately. Besides school, work, and daily life, I’ve joined the social website called Wattpad. Have you ever heard of it?
Wattpad is a social platform that allows you to publish your stories daily (full books, short stories, poetry). You can update everyday, once a week, or whenever you feel like it, plus you get to interact with other writers and readers through club chats. Also, your story can be voted and commented on, some people even reach a million views and get deals to get published.
Since I was feeling a bit distant from the writing world, I decided to join in and publish my first completed book, and start writing a new one. It’s been a rocky road, since Wattpad has a lot, and I mean A LOT, of writers and books.
Sometimes you can get lost with comparison. Some books have millions of views while your still struggle to reach 1K. However, it’s a great way to put your work out there, get quick feedback on your story, and just force yourself to actually write.
Some people post their first draft chapter by chapter, while others post the whole thing at once. You can delete your story and start fresh or even edit as you go. It has many possibilities, besides you can create a fanbase for you as a writer.
It’s a great platform for beginners and even professional writers. Why don’t you give it a try? Perhaps you will find the motivation you needed to finish that story you’ve kept in the drawer.
Here is my Wattpad Profile
