writing

#663

Probably. The guy who runs this is all over the forums.


#664

Lol okay this is going to sound arrogant but… a wattpad genre account qouldn’t add my book to their reading list even though I thought it was quite a good book?

Now I’m questioning my writing quality and stuff >_<

Idk what to do


#665

What book is it?


#666

You mean, like, the specific title? >_<


#667

Yeah. I wanna check it out.


#668

You don’t have to check it out lol but it’s nice of you to offer.

It’s called the infraction of Magic and I’m probably missing something (?) Because it’s my first attempt at fantasy


#669

I tried sending mine either, and nobody even deigned to reply, so… I think they have so much fantasy they don’t even read applications, tbh.


#670

That’s comforting to know ^-^ Which Fantasy account did you send yours in for?


#671

The one they advertised as the ‘new rules’ for featured, and the fantasy list i found under the orange Wattpad drop down menu. I dunno, there are some other ones floating around, but the Asian one is dead, so…


#672

Assuming y’all are talking about getting featured in stuff.

Getting featured, they don’t do applications anymore, I don’t think. Nowadays, you have to tag your book to be feature? Don’t quote me on this, but I think it’s clear now that you don’t send applications in to be featured.


#673

They had started a thread on this very forum like three weeks ago, opening the new application and queue for featured list.


#674

So they’re bringing back the application process to get featured?


#675

Yes, they did. They even gave statistics, etc of the applications. it looked pretty impossible to make it in fantasy.


#676

About fucking time. I got featured in fanfiction through the application process when I first started in 2015. Although it took me three times to actually get accepted, it’s vastly more on the fair side then just tagging the featured tag on your book, which gets you lost in a sea of shitty books anyway. The application process is the fairest way to do it. I thought it was stupid to get rid of it in the first place. But, then again, Wattpad’s been making a lot of stupid decisions as of late.


#677

I don’t keep up enough with Wattpad to know. What does Wattpad even do?


#678

Readers are going to have to start paying to read books. Some already have to.


#679

Well, that does not concern most of us anyway.


#680

Perhaps not, but it will soon.


#681

Why? It’s just for popular authors. And if not, when there is always the press-whatever dot net.
