“Edit: from the responses that I got from people in this thread it made me motivated again and gave me many reasons to stay that I can’t argue. Thank you all for the responses and advices and I will leave this discussion like how it is and not close it. Maybe someone is feeling the same way and maybe after reading this, they’d decide to stay.”
Have you ever got into this situation when you are thinking to decide whether to stay on Wattpad or leave? If yes, how could you get over this idea and shake it off from mind and stay? Because I love Wattpad but the idea got me so bad to leave this time.
I’ve gotten into this situation several times and the thing that mostly helped me through was taking a break and going on hiatus. Whenever I returned from hiatus I was missing this place and was excited to write more and also get in contact with other writers. However, the last time I was on hiatus, I felt so much better that I didn’t want to come back to here and social media. My friends from Wattpad kept pm me and they brought me back.
Now for over a month, the idea of leaving hit me again and I’m afraid that once I take a break from here I’d not like coming back. I don’t know what are my reasons for real… it could be that I’ve seen some of my friends leaving Wattpad, could be because of a recent one she left and left a message saying that “I don’t have a good chance on here. It’s hard to get someone to read my books, people here mostly like to read romance or dark fantasy, with mature content whether it’s violence or sexual, and lgbt+. And I don’t write those. I don’t have audience for my genre I’m writing.” I tried to convince her to stay but I failed. After a while, I noticed the popular books that were shown on my home page for paid stories and none, mostly are rated as mature. I was shocked that what she said was true. I tried to shake it off and think like there are some also which weren’t rated as mature. Then probably this too, my friends brought me back here but now few of friends are either leaving Wattpad for good with informing me or not, and also my friends are in contact with me through social media mostly. They hardly get on the community here so when I got on here, it feels like lonely in sort of way. The only thing that making me hang in there this while, that I’d like to see Wattys results of this year to see who wins whether it’s me or one or few of my friends, because it’s near.
