What Is Wattpad?

What Is Wattpad?

The website that is changing the publishing game.

As a writer, the biggest struggle is figuring out how to get your work out into the world. Going the traditional publishing route can be rough and often takes multiple rejection letters to find that one yes. Then you have to go through the lengthy process of actually getting the book into print. Because the classic publishing track takes too long to get noticed, a lot of authors are opting for publishing their works on websites. From Amazon.com to Fictionpress.com, writers everywhere are publishing their work without the help of publishing companies.

Wattpad is a little different from the previous websites. In addition to fanfiction stories and writers' own works, Wattpad is a community for writers. Everything from forums to contests are available to help writers get their stories out into the world. Writers can create their own covers or they might even get chosen to have a cover created for them. There are amazing stories on there with readers in the millions.

Writers are flocking to Wattpad due to the rising popularity of their stories getting published directly from the website. Novels such as "My Life with the Walter Boys" by Ali Novak, "The Kissing Booth" by Beth Reekles, and "Nothing Left to Lose" by Kristy Moresely are all available for purchase in paperback thanks to Wattpad. The website not only has contests where the winner gets published, but publishing companies themselves have contacted authors from Wattpad to sign with them.

If you're not a writer, Wattpad is still a great website for the avid reader. With multiple genres ranging from Classics to Short Stories, Horror to Romance, there's something for everyone on the website. You can discover new authors every day. Plus, the website is a lot more readable than Fictionpress.

So if you're a writer or someone who enjoys the written work, check out Wattpad. It's changing the publishing game.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
