All writers need a Wattpad Moment


I attended a talk at our local library last Saturday in Kenmore, near Brisbane City, Australia. I was with six others from our Creative Writing group. We had all been reading and writing fiercely, and were excited about learning to E-Publish.

As it turned out, the Kenmore Library talk, given by the Queensland Writers Centre was valuable and inspired all of us. Although we were all ‘pumped’ by the talk, some members were not too comfortable with self-promotion and general socialising on the internet and E-publishing.  Some of course (all total of three of us) raced home and signed up with Wattpad to begin writing our stories.

I was working through my drafts and trying to choose what I would like to write or publish on Wattpad. I also looked up general information on Wattpad and read other stories written by various writers. It is too early for me to know whether this step would assist me with my plans to publish some of my work but I will share more later.

Amongst all the information I read and saw, I came across this short video – which made me laugh. This video is not only about what a writer does in Wattpad. This is what we all do in Wattpad or WordPress or even other social networks – we are eager to get some response, feedback or praise when general advice is ‘write for yourself’, or ‘don’t expect’ anything or ‘believe in what you are doing’….. after all, writers are human.

  1. Sure! I will check it out – do you have an email address? If I have a big long feedback, I will email it to you. 🙂 Now if you search for “Unwanted Fall” on my blog, you can see the story I am thinking of posting.

    1. Hi LucidLeoLady, thank you for commenting and sharing. My name is the same as this Blog Tribal Mystic. I have not posted any stories yet, just reading what others are posting. I am thinking of expanding the short story I have published on this blog called “Unwanted Fall” into a book. I want to publish some of my Memoir stories, but only bits and pieces. I think I will post the “Unwanted Fall” this week. Then, I can add chapters to it.

  4. I just recently found out about Wattpad myself. I put one story on there, but don’t think anyone has read it yet, ha ha…I did something completely different (sci-fi/horror) than what I have ever done. I plan to also put some more short stories on there….
