Over the last few weeks I’ve gotten asked this question a lot, or my friends who I talk to do not know what Wattpad is. So I thought I would write a little bit about the platform for writers and readers alike.
So what is Wattpad?
Wattpad is an online community for authors and readers. It’s interactive so readers can comment on their favorite books while they are reading, and the authors can see those comments and feedback the fans give. Fans can also message and talk to the authors through comments on their chapters or in private messages. Authors also can send out a mass message/notification to notify their fans when a new chapter has been written and posted.
I really like the fact that as each chapter gets published to the website you can see the improvements these writers make. Most of the authors on the site are beginners. So working through chapters can take some time as they are writing them.
I recently just found out that Wattpad is based in Toronto, which is awesome since it’s not too far from me!
Wattpad is a great online tool for anyone who wants to write. There are different books and groups available to the beginner author too. I’ve just recently checked out some of them, because I am in the mist of writing my own novel as well.
Did I also mention that Wattpad is free? Well if not I am letting you know now…… and yes you got it, it’s FREE. I honestly have been addicted to Wattpad since I joined last November (2017).
Are you on Wattpad? I would love to connect with you; You can find me here.
