Nick from Wattpad By nick Updated Sep 14

I've been on Wattpad for 6 years now. I came here as a writer, and today I'm an employee. Half of my time has been spent behind a desk here. I've never stopped being a writer while I'm here, and I'm always on a quest to figure out how to write, what to do, and how you find success here.

I want to take everything I've learned and cover how to write, how to use Wattpad, and how things really work.

Great breakdown, and you state it clearly. Thanks for writing this!
Glad you differentiated between purposes for books. Many I write for the feedback. Until I write an original fic, I will never be published, but I am a feedback junkie for my fanfics. :-)
You see I joined because my friend told me I should. I know I'm not the best writer, but I needed a place to write my thoughts and ideas down
Sounds clever without being too daunting!
                              
                              I'm certain there'll be much to look forward to and learn from here ...

I can feel the essence of the writer when I read a story, it's a very intimate experience for me.
