Looking for a captivating romance story you can't put down? Check out Tamara's work @TamaraLush
" I was too afraid to write fiction until I was forty-three! Once I did begin writing fiction, I realized I was a writer when I was thinking more about the characters in my book than things that were happening in real life. I got back into Wattpad when I posted a long serial fiction romance. I love serial fiction so Wattpad is tailor made for me. It's a wild feeling when readers discover and "get" my stories. Readers really connect with my heroines because they are ambitious and real, and that's quite satisfying.
Paid Stories allows me to actually pursue fiction writing as a full-time job. Now, I am creating entire worlds AS A JOB. I am so blessed to have this in my life. I have a community of writers who are eager and excited to talk about writing. Not marketing, not industry, but craft. It's a place of sharing ideas and feedback. The ability to write what I want symbolizes freedom to me. Words should be valued. Content should be valued. But well-edited, well-thought out books should be celebrated. There is power in words, and we should treat them as such."
