About a year ago, we talked about how the online writing community we all know as Wattpad has its pros and cons for the published community. Maybe you want to dive in and work on some short prequels. Or possibly write a quick spin-off for your begging readers. The site has wonderful resources to both expand on your writing abilities and become a platform for you to share the little details about your world to a new generation.
But it doesn’t stop there. Wattpad has had more than one success story.
There are authors who have signed traditional book deals for their works on Wattpad’s shelves. But just this past weekend, Publisher’s Weekly wrote up a great article discussing the most recent optioned pieces. You read that correctly: OPTIONED.
Hollywood has decided that maybe the comic book movies and remakes are not cutting it for the box office. It’s now very possible to be recognized by studios and producers who are trying to find the next big thing! All they have to do is refresh their page and see what everyone is reading!
So upload everything you can onto Wattpad. You’re (hopefully) going to Hollywood, baby!
Is it just me, or is there no body to this post?
You. Are. Correct. 😐
Fixing this right now!
It should be up and running now!
I posted my first short story on Wattpad a couple of weeks ago. I’m not doing anything to promote it though and so it’s not being seen. It was more of a test to see what would happen if I just posted. The result is, nothing. Nothing will happen. LOL Anywho. Great post! Thanks!
Haha! Who knows! Maybe in a year – IT’LL SKYROCKET! To be quite fair though, any platform will be up in the air. It always depends on the trends, the readers…oh, if I get into it, my brain will start to hurt!
Hurty brain is why I’m keeping the posting and promotion of my stories as simple as possible until I get the hang of this whole thing xD
Wouldn’t that be a kick! I’ll take a look. Thanks for reading.
This never occurred to me. Going to look at Wattpad ASAP. Thank you:-)
Of course! Even if Wattpad is a source for you to write prequels, short stories, spin-offs…it’s a WONDERFUL way to expose your writings on a new platform! 🙂
Done deal. Account started. 1st short posted. Thanks again.
I actually liked this article. Now and again I find articles that can make me want to get into bloggin myself. Many thanks!
Excellent post! We are linking to this particularly great post on our site. Keep up the great writing.
Thank you for the support! 🙂
