Paid Stories Update ft Nick


#124

The metaphorical table of ideas is my favourite place to hang out at Wattpad HQ. The chairs are really comfy and there’s tiny baby goats that jump around the room.


#125

I knew the goats went to a petting zoo at HQ!


#126

This visual pleases me greatly.


#127

marketing is one of the few teams that consistently gets to live in that metaphorical table of ideas and bring them to life


#128

How do you feed the goats tho?


#129

Also, something that kinda bothers me a bit. In the application, it says that those denied applications will not receive any emails notifying that their application gets denied. Any particular reason why? A stock response would be nice.


#130

Broadly, scale and size, there are a few other reasons too.

There are specific reasons too. I don’t send responses to scissors-themed stories, for example. Point of pride.


#131

Scissors-themed stories do tend to be a contentious point for some. Dance based stories, however, I find more tolerable. But I get it. Its maybe too big of an operation to pull something like that. Would be nice at some point tho!

Hire me Wattpad. No resume needed. All of my necessary qualifications are right there :point_up:t2:

Okay, back on topic. I’ll leave now.


#133

Scissors stories know what they did


#134

10/10 would totally hire.


#135

Unspeakable horrors and Wendy’s advertisements to name a few.


#136

Hj there! Do the books stay in the program for a specific amount of time? Like three months? Six months? A year? From what I understood, there are limited spots in the program. Will they be refreshed from time to time or will they stay there permanently if the author wants so?


#137

So long as the other wants to participate and we also feel they’re a good partner, we would continue. But there is a minimum commitment with the program (so authors cannot join, clean up issues and get feedback and then immediately leave). We ask for that time commit as part of our time commit to the authors.


#138

can i pay for stories with goat sacrifices @nick :goat::goat::goat:


#139

You can’t even buy my love with them


#140

mon dieu, nick, you break my heart how could u do this to me, i am shocked and slightly disappointed


#141

I think the most atractive part of that program for me would be the feedbacks I could get. I think I seriously need some profesional advice if I wanna take my writing to the next level


#142

gasp


#143

Makes it transparent. You have “Mature” and “Not Mature”, so it’s clear to have “Paid” and everything else that is freely given by the blood, sweat and tears of a person.
