Hey! :slight_smile:


#43

That sounds awesome! I have to upload my last chapter today and I dont know if i can handle it


#44

Hey!


#45

You had me at Melbourne.


#46

I’m trying to figure out how soon is too soon to write a new story


#47

There’s no too soon :joy:


#48

Aww congratulations on finishing your story!


#49

That’s what i was thinking


#50

Ah thank you so much! It’s a bittersweet thing


#51

I know the other post got flagged but I changed this to a sys thread so it should be ok now so if you want you can link your story and we can have a ‘book club’ and just hype each other up. It’s hard first starting out on wattpad so it might be easier with some friends to give you feedback etc etc


#52

It does get me upset from time-to-time. But at the same time, I have to be thankful. I work overnights at a gas station and during my downtime, I pull out my phone and work on my latest stories. I only work on 1st drafts while I am at my job. Editing while at work is just way too hard.


#53

Hmm, i think i like this idea of thread.


#54

Ah I wish I could finish mine already haha


#55

I’m glad you do! As a new author on wattpad I’m struggling to get feedback so I cant improve and i figured that other people who had the same issue could come together and work on improving together!


#56

You’ll get there! It took me about a week to write this but I’ve also been working on one book for about 5 years too!


#57

A week!? Ah I take a week to write a chapter lol but I don’t wanna take so long either


#58

Seems like a great idea

@MissyFloral13 Hi there, thanks for starting this thread because it allowed me to check out your book! I love gritty stuff and it can be hard to find it on this site. I’ve given you a bit of advice too, hope it helps.


#60

I’m curious, what do you mean by gritty?


#61

In my mind, grittiness most strongly relates to the ‘toughness’ aspect of realism. So when something is dark and violent often in a realistic way, I’d call it gritty even if it’s fantasy. Sorry to ramble, but does that make sense?
