I started writing on Wattpad. For those who are unfamiliar, Wattpad is a social media site for writers. It’s YA focused, and requires a username/password to use. It used to be free, but times have changed. Now there’s a free side and a paywalled side.
My work is on the free side.
I first posted on WP in 2015. I had some minor success. Mostly I learned that writing is hard work, and that I really needed to take a few classes on plotting and character development. I will admit that classes have few and far between, mainly because I just couldn’t commit to a MFA program, but I have read a lot of books on the subject.
So, I popped in the other day to check on my author page. I keep meaning to delete it. I figured I’ve gotten enough out of the old WP.
Except, check it out:
861,000 views? What the Watt? I’m both surprised and flattered.
In the end, I figured I’d keep the page up and maybe someday start re-writing this puppy. I’m dealing with content fatigue, my creativity levels are low to nil. At the same time, it’s kind of fun to see if I can actually make one of those beat sheet thingys work for me.
Some day I’ll move content from there to here. In the meantime, links are below.
