I don’t really need anything else to read. I have almost 450 books on my Goodreads To Be Read List, another 120 or so unread books on my Kindle that aren’t on Goodreads plus a large number of physical books, comics, graphic novels and magazines.
Despite that, I’ve joined Wattpad and started having a look round there as well. Lots of good stuff and I’m already building up a new To Be Read pile to go with all the others.
If you’re not familiar with Wattpad, it’s basically a huge online community where authors can post fiction and readers can…well…read. There’s a lot of fan fiction (particularly One Direction fanfic for some reason) but there’s a lot of other work there, including some big names like Cory Doctorow, Margaret Atwood and Hugh Howie. You can read the stories on PC but they also have some excellent mobile apps.
Not to be left out, I’ve started posting my own stories, starting with on old favourite – Cag: An Almost True Story.
I’ll be posting a few more over the coming weeks, including some new pieces. Sorry, none of it is One Direction fan fiction.
If you’re on Wattpad, and you feel like following my updates, I’d be very happy to see you there and I’ll gladly follow back.
And don’t forget, if you want more free fiction, you can join my newsletter.[Do You Wattpad? by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 24th July 2014]
