Twice featured Watty winner (and you thought they had standards around here).
As an avid reader and an aspiring writer, it's great to be part of a community of millions of like-minded people. I've met a bunch of fantastic fellow authors and received some truly invaluable advice.
I suspect most of us have a pretty decent book (or two) inside of us; the challenge is getting it out. Well, and then getting somebody to read it. But anyway, one challenge at a time.
"The Four Baristas of the Apocalypse" has been my primary project/challenge, and is the story that the Wattpad pixies, in their infinite wisdom (and obvious good taste) decided to feature and award a Watty. It's complete (barring a little polishing) as of September 2018, plus - as a bit of a detour along the way - I've also written the "The Blade", which was my first foray into fantasy and wound up as a finalist in the Open Novella Contest. Both have the potential for sequels, but we'll see what real life has to say about that.
One of the main reasons I started writing on Wattpad was to see whether I could actually complete a novel, and I have to admit to being a little gobsmacked that it's actually happened. Even more so that people have actually read them.
With a few exceptions, my stories generally don't take themselves too seriously (real life contains more than enough serious stuff). If you're interested, some shorter samples can be found here: -
