Originally published on airborneorange. Wattpad is home to many aspiring authors, all of them bustling to gain some kind of recognition, make a name for themselves and stand out amongst the millions of others trying to do the exact same. For writers…not so much.
Until around two months ago, I used to house all of my fiction work on Wattpad in hopes of field testing my stories, seeing if others liked them, etc.
I did a lot of research, experimenting, and asking around as to how best establish my presence on the platform, and found but a handful of long, laborious ways. At that time, I was writing on Medium and my blog too.
And had about fifty other things to take care of. That obviously is not a good thing.
So, I decided to get rid of some avenues. Comparing the traction, interaction and success I saw on each platofrm, I found that Wattpad was doing the worst, despite me putting up the most work and putting in the most effort there. Now, I am aware of the fact that people have got actual publishing deals thanks to their work on Wattpad.
But the thing is, all that happens if you gain enough traction.
Wattpad is not a scouting platform. It can be thought of as Medium, but for fiction only other key differences between the two are that Medium allows all types of writing, whether fiction or non-fiction, and you have more chances of getting scouted on Medium than you do on Wattpad.
The key to getting mountains traffic on Wattpad is to be an active part of their clubs and other Wattpad communities and awards. It may need changing to fit in nicely with later events or re-sequencing so the story reads better. A backstory may need to be added so that the latter parts make more sense.
There are just so many endless possibilities! This may also discourage readers and cause them to quit reading due to frustration.
In short, these kinds of services are a terrible idea for two reasons: You need to invest a lot of time and energy if you want to make it big personal experience, as well as questioning a few successful Wattpaders, talking here. Long story short, though, start a blog and work on your book simultaneously. Read the post for more on this.
Weekly, I put up a new blog post on airborneorange. Elsewhere, I can be found on Twitter and Instagram ajinkyagoyal.
