It’s Watty season and with that comes a lot of stress, happiness, hype and general excitement.
Last year @poznati made the amazing Wattys Support Group thread, so I’ll carry on the torch and make another this year.
Do you have any grievances? Is the logline killing you? How’s the editing going? Are you a maniac and writing a full submission in less than two months? Do you just really need a hug?
Come in here and get supported!
Shake yo’ hand back and forth to let the energy out
Stick out yo’ bouncin’ booty; move it all about
Stand up, squat down so your legs don’t fall asleep
When you’re working on word counts you’re trying to beat
Raise yo’ arms so you don’t get carpal tunnel
While writing so much feels yo’ brain’s in a funnel
Sway side to side when you’re feelin’ that groove
'cuz you know to write you gotta MOVE!
instrumental music and some yeah yeahs
This is the Wattys (what) and we ain’t goin’ down
We’re Wattpad writers; we own this town
We’re tired, stressed, but our writing ain’t shoddy
Now who of us is ready to WIN THAT WATTY?
I just really want to know how people get inspired by the Wattys so I can get in that mindset. What about Wattys season gets everyone so amped up and confident?
I was feeling really good about everything but it took a nosedive once the Wattys were announced and the hype started. I want to know what other people are focused on that keeps them confident instead of getting insecure?
Oh dear christ, lord knows I have my issues with battle scenes. And I write Action Fantasy
I’m just procrastinating on the summaries for two of my submissions tbh. I can’t be bothered to do them right now and I should probably reread both of them to see what actually happens. Because I’ve forgotten.
