Sorry! I fell asleep! But I’m back lol! Lots happening for me today. Church, a luncheon, a babyshower, and laundry… it’s sad I have to schedule that haha! Whatcha up too?
Not sure what to do tonight. Tried to write, but blank pages. D:
That’s the worst. Do ever have moments when you feel inspired to write, but as soon as you do all your ideas disappear?
Hmmm not that I remember, but I think it’s happened. I’m probably just too worried about making everything “perfect” and need to let go of my self-made demands
Yep, that’s another wall for me too. I want everything to be perfect from the beginning lol.
I always scribble down in my notebook when it strikes me. It’s mostly not perfect but when I finally get in front of a pc or in general the time to sit down and figure it out with whole sentences I have the notes which bring me back to my thoughts - plug in the earphones and let the music directly flow from your head into your fingers… perfect
Newly 27 and new to the thread. How do
Hi! I’m 26 and new to the thread too (and new to Wattpad, lol). I thought I was pretty old for the site but I’m glad to see I’m not alone. What’s up, guys?
I’m over 25 but not in the 35+ club yet—so I guess I technically fit in here, just about? I’m also new to Wattpad and looking to connect with fellow writers and wonderful creative types.
@stevetendo Welcome to both of you.
What kinds of stories do you like? Do you have a preferred genre that you like to write in?
I’ve been a sci-fi fan ever since I read my dad’s beaten up copy of Dune. Didn’t take me long to get into fantasy after that.
In recent years I’ve been reading a lot more horror, as well as books outside my favourite genres—just to broaden my reading.
I’ve written a few pieces of superhero fiction—a novel and a short story—and am currently querying a supernatural noir, so I suppose sci-fi and supernatural/horror are genres I prefer to write as of right now.
What about you?
That sounds awesome
I’m a sci-fi fantasy fan too
I love Star Wars, the Expanse, the Dresden Files and recently I’ve been digging into some of Neil Gaiman’s stuff. I just finished Stardust and now I’m reading Neverwhere. I like his stuff so far.
“Old man scifi” is younger than me. :< “old…man…”
I wouldn’t take it personally! It refers to the style of Sci-Fi I like to read! aka stuff from the 70-80’s
Hi everyone - I’m thirty three and feel like I’m in a bit of weird bracket when it comes to Wattpad (too much of a whippersnapper for the Over 35s and waaaaay too old for the young crowd (probably because I use terms like “whippersnapper”). Nice to find a spot for the middling lot
32 here, I feel you on this.
Oh so heinlein, asimov, orson Scott card, that dune guy, etc? It’s not my thing, but I’ve read a few asimovs.
That and Niven, Pournelle and LeGuin
I need to read LeGuin, but my to read list is… significant, and mostly current authors. Wendig, king, nk jemsin, a bunch of smaller names, plus some local authors
