Girl, I relate to this so much!! I’m 21 and wattpad was my life from 11-15 years old. Came back around at 20 and saw a huge change! I find the content and stories are completely different from when I first joined. As well, some of my favourite stories are published which is amazing! I saw a series that I read here published in a Chapters/Indigoo in Canada, and I just had to buy it. Brought back so many memories of my friends and I dying over it! I remember why I loved wattpad so much! I found it cool going back and reading all the stories I loved so much when I was younger. It makes me laugh, as I would obsess over them!
For me what’s most amazing is that when I was 11, 12, 13 years old, wattpad was a way to find stories that could fulfill my child size fantasies. Now I find myself on wattpad looking for well written, thought-provoking novels. As I grew up I never would have thought that the same website at age 11 could bring me the same joy at age 21.
I do have to say, there are some amazing young writers on this site! Makes me wish I had those same writing abilities!
