Things on Wattpad are going quite well where my Wingborn/Overworld tales are concerned, so to celebrate it, I thought I’d add a few short stories and deleted scenes around the place. On Wednesdays, since I’ve stopped the extra chapter updates.
I needed to make up this cover for Wattpad, but I’ll probably also make an ebook out of it one day when I have enough stuff to pad it out.
For now, I have a handful of short stories and a scattering of deleted scenes and alternative chapters. I’ll be starting with Wingborn related things, but I’ll probably move on to Rift at some point.
In the meantime, any requests? So far I have first meetings of Cue and Hurricane, Lyrai and Stirla, plus a Stirla survival lesson and a longer story about Stirla and Milli, but is there anything else people would like to see? First flights? When Stirla met Atyrn? Derry making the decision to join the Riders? Kilai’s first day at Aquila? Mucking about at Wrentheria? Downtime at Aquila? Something with Myran or Hylan or the dean? Maybe more Corin, Mouse or the other students?
I’m open to any and all suggestions. I can’t promise I’ll be able to actual write them, but I will definitely give it a go.
In the meantime, I shall go kick things off with when Stirla met Lyrai…
Merry Wednesday, everyone!

I used to be active on Wattpad, but I found that site has mostly poorly written stories and the readership there doesn’t care for decent writing. Unless you write teen fiction and romance, it’s hard to get reads. My original stories have been posted there for over a year, and only I have is
Wattpad is something of an experiment for me right now. Years ago I started out by posting stories online at a site called Elfwood, and when I think about how bad my writing was then and how popular it was, it’s kind of embarrassing. But these online sites are often about how good you are at networking or how much time you have to make friends and read other stuff as it is the quality of writing. (Continued on the other comment :)
Sorry, my comment cut off.
I only have is 69.8 reads, which is nothing compared to some writers there.
69.8 thousand reads is pretty impressive! Way better than I’m doing. Sure, compared to some it can be disheartening to see some One Direction fan fiction at way over 1 million, but you’re clearing doing something right if that many people are reading and liking your work.
I only look at Wattpad as a way to raise the profile of some of my stories before self-pubbing anyway. I guess it all depends what you’re hoping to get out of them.
Still, you should be really proud of what you’ve achieved. That many followers and supporters is no small feat – especially when you think about how many stories are out there and how many other things people have to spend their time on. Clearly, you are awesome :)
I don’t think it’s impressive at all, but you are right about online writing not being about quality – that is very, very true.
