Okay, so I feel like I’ve beeb seeing a lot of negative things about wattpad recently. On here, about like glitches and changes and stuff and off wattpad about it just being fanfiction (not saying ff is bad). BUT I want to share what I love about wattpad. I’ve been on here only for a few months, and I think it is amazing the amount of high quality stories there are on here with diverse and underrepresented characters in them. I’ve read more diverse stories in wattpad than I have traditionally published books in years (and I’m a heavy reader). For example, I’m currently reading two ongoing stories with asexual characters (check out the eagles arrow by @Xenoclea or Un-titled by @LanaJoKing if you’re interested) . I’ve read maybe one or two trad published book with a character that could be considered ace in my life.
TLDR; it makes me happy that wattpad is a place for amazing diverse stories that haven’t yet found a place in trad publishing.
