Since diving into sharing my own writing on Wattpad (that’s the only place you can read my stories at the moment) I’ve discovered a whole world of genuinely amazing fiction by incredibly talented writers from all over the world. I’ve talked here before about Wattpad’s wonderful community, but this post looks at it from another angle. For 2020, the only place I’m getting my fill of fiction from is Wattpad…and it’s off to a wonderful start!
If you haven’t spent a lot of time on Wattpad, you might assume it’s filled with fanfiction and teen romance. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of that there, but there are also stories – from flash fiction to novel-length works – in just about every genre you can think of. There’s a lot of high-quality, engaging writing on the site and while there are paid stories available, the vast majority of books are completely free (and even the paid ones aren’t expensive).
For 2020, I’m challenging myself to only read fiction on Wattpad. I mean, to read fiction only on Wattpad. Hang on. The only source of fiction I will be using is Wattpad. The English language is rife with potential ambiguity. Anyway. Technically I started this last year, but “My end of 2019 and 2020 Wattpad-only reading challenge” didn’t have quite the same ring to it.
Here are some of the fabulous books I’ve enjoyed so far…
In my next post, I’ll be sharing one of the most useful writing resources I’ve ever encountered. If you do any kind of worldbuilding for your stories, you’ll definitely want to see this.
