Hello, wonderlandians! Thank you for joining me here today. How is your Monday night going? I came home from work and cleaned my apartment for two hours. Adulting is fun. I swear I have had more caffeine today than I have had all week. Getting to bed at 3 am when you have to get up at 6:30 in the morning is not a good idea. In my defence, though I had gotten into this really cool story. This caused me to look like a zombie. The result at the end of the day looks something like this
I have had a problem over the last few days where I have not wanted to read anything. This makes me turn to the internet to help me find something to distract me. I think I have been cramming in a lot of reading in these last two weeks. I have basically finished a book a day. Which is great though sometimes the mind needs a break. I have found that watching Youtube and taking a break from reading is a good thing. A lot of the books I have tried to read over the last few days have not held any interest at all to me. I found myself on wattpad last night at about 8pm. See this was my first mistake. I wanted to read something that I could skim over and make my eyes tired. Usually, when it comes to sites like wattpad and fanfiction.net I tend to skim over the stories there. This time, however, I did not find any fanfiction on wattpad last night that help interest to me.
I fell down the rabbit hole of original stories on wattpad. It did not look good with everything that I had started reading. Then right as I was about to give up I found a dang story with over 35 chapters. I was reading that story for 8 hours and I am still not done. I want to finish this story tonight. It is called Midnight CEO. It is by a wonderful author on there named AluraJasmine.
I have not in a long while that down for 8 hours straight just to read one story. Typically I’m listening to an audiobook so I have the advantage of moving around while I’m listening to the book. I did find myself switching between my phone and my laptop to read this story. I believe the story has over 63,000 views on Wattpad. Going into the story you think it’s going to be one thing and then it turned out to be something completely different.
I know that there are a lot of authors on Wattpad that get a lot of heat for posting their stories there. I have read a lot of books that have started off on Wattpad and then got pulled to be cleaned up and then published traditionally or even self-published. I believe the book called Beautiful Bastard was started on Wattpad and then was pulled. That book has now been optioned for movie rights.
So I have a couple questions for you guys today. What do you guys think of Wattpad authors? what do you guys think of sites like Wattpad? have you found any good stories on Wattpad?
Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of Wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. I saw that they were giving rides to anybody who gave them a treat. they’re also hanging out in the waterhole with some mermaids. They can be a little bit tricky so be careful around the mermaids.
Until next time
