Until today I hadn't really heard of Wattpad, but I just read an article about it on Wrtier's Digest. Am I missing out by not reading stories there or publishing my stories there?
Of course, the writer of the article made it sound as though if I didn't published on there RIGHT NOW I'd never be successful in life, but the other part of me thinks that I shouldn't post my work there for free - the work that I've slaved over for years - so people can just have it for free. However, I understand the usefulness in building a platform and audience.
Is it okay to post an excerpt? Does that sound like a teasing way to advertise?
Anyone with experience with Wattpad have any sage advice?
