I gotta be honest. I don’t know what they mean when they say that something sounds like or would be good as a #Wattpad
does a Wattpad story look like? I mean, sound like? I mean, feel like? DO I EVEN KNOW WHAT I MEAN?!!
I suppose it’s, normally, love stories because people make comments like that after watching videos or reading plot ideas for romantic stories. But when I see or read them myself, they’re not really stuff that we haven’t read yet or watched before. How effective they are/will be should depend on the execution of the work.
So I just keep mum, wondering to myself what a Wattpad story really is other than it being published in the platform. I haven’t read much from it. Some that I saw online before were…hmnn…I don’t really know what to say. I remember this one story that actually got published as a book (not by Wattpad, that’s all the info I will provide). I got so turned off. It was very…I guess, the word I am looking for is “pretentious”. The worse part is the publishing company did not do its job. No one edited the work to make it better, especially to correct wrong grammar, misspellings, and typos. It was like they just copy-pasted everything and hit print! I don’t blame the writer for those. Writers make mistakes. It’s the editor’s job to correct them.
Anyway, I am not, in any way, hating on Wattpad. That’s why I’m there now, to try it. A lot of the books do seem good. I don’t really know yet. I’ve had the same book on my reading list for years. I have never read it. I still may not because I’m trying to be busy writing.
I am curious if my writing would be worthy to be called a Wattpad story. But it’s okay if not. That’s not my goal. I just want to create and, hopefully, my efforts will not be in vain.
