How to Find/Advertise Undiscovered Works


#164

We thought about that, but we don’t want it to become filled with books over 1k because they forgot to remove the tag. So we’re thinking of changing the tag seasonally or something along those lines


#165

True. Yeah, I was thinking about it a bit more and I do see your point. I guess having the year in the tag also encourages writers to be active and readers to read more recent works.


#166

That’s the idea anyways, still a work in progress. I just made a post for the winter one, it’s for books under 500 :slight_smile: so we’ll see how it goes!


#167

Nice! Love what you are doing. Fingers crossed! :slightly_smiling_face:

Is the under 500 one on a separate thread? I’d love to check out those stories too.


#168

Yup! It’s in The Cafe


#169

Tagged my story!! This is a really great idea!! https://www.wattpad.com/story/168299168-their-purpose


#170

Just so everyone knows, there is a new tag and challenge! You’ll find it in the Cafe under the post Books Under 500 Reads


#171

I started using #2019undiscovered1k and got excited I was #1, then realised no one was using it XD :flushed::joy:


#172

Oh no! Haha yeah hadn’t started one for 2019 because I was figuring out ways to tailor it better so more people got reads instead of just a few people :joy: yay for being number 1 though!


#173

This is so helpful. I tagged the story I just started. :slightly_smiling_face:


#174

Right on! Be sure to check the one for Books Under 500 Reads (forum is in the Cafe) that’s one just started :slight_smile:


#175

I don’t know if I’m allowed to post my own story but I’m back in the wattpad scene dying to have my voice or words read once again. Please take a look, thank you!


#176

Over achiever lol.


#177

XD

Have you tried the “Share Your Story” thread here? https://www.wattpadwriters.com/c/share-your-story
It might help kick start exposure. You could also plug your story to the “Story Request” thread where relevant https://www.wattpadwriters.com/c/share-your-story/story-requests
I’ve attracted some interest on both.

Welcome to the forums and back to WP :grin:

[Edit: Did this thread just get moved to SYS and I didn’t notice :flushed:] Well, #awkward.


#179

Here’s the link to the other thread in case anyone was looking for a link! :slight_smile:


#180

Thank you!!!


#181

So considering its 2019, do we change the tag? I just set mine to both 2018 and 2019.

Its not considered wrong is it?


#182

It’s not, but we do have another one started for reads under 500 called 2019winterchallenge500. There’s a forum under the Cafe for it


#183

Oh sweet thanks, now if you don’t mind me asking. Is this for finished works only or do newly started works qualify as well?
