My new years resolution is to write two chapters a month, publishing on the 1st and 15/16 because i write around 3k words per chapter. i used to have chapters already made but cirrcumstances butchered my back up chapters so i’m kinda writing for each deadline now. but i don’t really mind, keeps me on my feet but it is annoying sometimes. ( I gotta sort that out sooner or later though.)
i have tried networking but i hate the whole advertising my stories on other peoples work, it makes me feel kinda scum-like, but i do comments on peoples works. i want to stop using critiques because it feel like nothing has changes during that period. i keep getting the same or similar responses. I also have two social media’s for my work, twitter and Instagram. I’ll try talking on threads more but i’m a student so i try to balance my school life with my leisure as it is.
I’ve been told my grammar is well up to par but some say its fine, some say it needs tweaks so i’m thinking of using the software called grammerly.
and the the last piece of advice is an easy check.
i’ve thought of doing competitions but those only really come round during summer and there’s not much in the UK compared to the US. The Wattpad ones are not really active right now either so that’s a disappointment too. I don’t know many sites outside of Wattpad that have similar formats for me to gain an audience.
