I’ve officially had this website for one week now, and it’s been an adventure!
So far I’ve had over 1,000 hits and followers and lots of wonderful emails, asking questions and/or fellow writers wanting to know me. (If you’ve read my About Me page then you know I LOVE talking to new people!). But I thought I’d thank you all by dedicating this post to one of my most frequently asked questions:
Where else can writers social network ?
There are quite a few places on the World Wide Web that allow writers to post their novels and get feedback, while all socializing and spreading their passion for reading and writing. However, one of my favorite websites for this is called Wattpad.com
Wattpad is a FANTASTIC place where writers can create a profile, tag genres, share stories, and provide fellow writers with their work. (You can also connect it to your Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr). You can ask for in-depth critiques, make friends, and even get book covers, fan art, and encouragement from your readers. And, if you just can’t get enough, there is an APP for your on-the-go cellphone needs.
Personally, I met some GREAT writers, including poets, who gave me unique and structural critique that I found very helpful.

I’m sure you’ll love your experience as much as I did.
