Just wanted to check in briefly and let you know that my “novel” on Wattpad is now completely posted! Check out the “My Books” tag above for the link, if you’re interested. 🙂
I’ve gotten a few more readers, some lovely comments, and whether new readers find it now that it’s finished or whether it floats away quietly into the void, I can say that I do not regret posting the story on Wattpad for one moment. It’s out there, and people can read it (if they want), and that’s better than my black hole of a hard drive any day.
I said at the beginning of this that if I got even just one reader who enjoyed the story, I would be happy. So I can say, unequivocally, that I am happy. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to give it a chance–I appreciate that so much.
As far as this blog… I want to get better about posting. And I keep saying that, and not changing, so I realize that’s a problem. But I’ve been in a difficult creative slump (more like roller coaster) lately, and it isn’t very conducive to posting writing “tips” like I know anything about anything. As always, my eternal optimism remains, so who knows what might happen in the near future… (Answer: nothing. Always nothing.) 🙂
I will do my absolute best to post more in the future, and if anything radical happens on Wattpad, I’ll let you know (for those interested in it as a platform themselves).
For now, I just wanted to say that my first novel, something I made, is out there in the world… and whatever happens in my life and career, that will always be awesome.
Yeah, that feeling of having something you wrote out there is great. Keep writing and posting on Wattpad. Keep writing and submit your work, as well.
For sure! Posting on Wattpad has been great, but traditional publishing is still my goal. Will do. 🙂
Thanks for the comment!
