I’m just trying to come to grips with how things work on Wattpad. I’ve never used Wattpad before so I’m trying to familiarise myself with the site before I go throwing my words around the Wattpad community.
Have any of my readers or followers used Wattpad before? If so, do you have any advice for a newbie? I don’t want to screw up even though I know that the only way to learn is to try it out for myself. I just don’t like feeling unprepared. It makes it that much harder to just write, you know?
I am looking at my star wars fanfic and I am thinking the way I have formatted it is just not going to work for Wattpad. The journal entries are far too short and I can’t call them chapters with less than 500 words. Most of the forum posts I’ve read say a chapter should be at least between 500 – 800 words and then others say it should be however long you want it to be. I dunno about that. I doubt my format would work well, I just get the feeling that if I want this story to be read, I have to flesh out the journal entries as full-blown chapters.
I’ve got some serious writing to do… I really want to be able to do this.
