Hello all! Time for a blog post about none other than my creative writing and how my current works are going. So, I joined Tablo Publishing two months ago and in that short amount of time, I’ve uploaded and written short stories, poetry and my ongoing YA novel that I started for Nanowrimo. Because there has been some interest surrounding my writing, I decided to make this post and hopefully answer the questions that you may have that you wanted to ask me.
Q1- Why post works online?
For the very basic reason that I just couldn’t keep my writing to myself XD but on a more serious note, I wanted to see what total strangers thought of my writing and the quickest and cheapest way to do that was to start posting online.
Q2- Have you seen a strong interest in your works?
There have been some Twitter followers interested and the beauty of being on Tablo is that you don’t need an account if you actually just want to read my works. You only need one if you would like to leave a comment on any of the chapters or follow me to be notified of new updates.
Q3- How have your family/friends reacted to your online works?
I don’t really show all of my writing to them but the parts that both my Mum and boyfriend have read, they have enjoyed but obviously their feedback will be a bit biased since they’re my loved ones and even though it’s scary to ask for constructive criticism, you kind of need that as a writer.
Q4- What are your current stats?
Across all of my online and publicly posted works on Tablo, I have 406 reads and a total of 18 followers. The most buzz has been on my Nanowrimo novel Letters To Myself which has 266 reads and 17 favourites, which shows that lots of readers have been giving my writing a try.
Q5- Do you have further plans to continue posting writing online?
I do have lots of stories and poems that I would most definitely like to bring to life to an online audience. It will take time and patience in order to succeed but due to the stats I mentioned in Q4, I think my current method is the right way to go about promoting my works to others.
Q6- What has it been like posting your Nanowrimo novel?
Terrifying, I won’t lie about that but what I will say is the best way to get over that fear is just to keep writing and posting, not suddenly stop. I know unexpected things get in the way of life but keep your readers posted and uploads regular.
Q7- Have you finished your novel yet?
Not at the moment but I hope to by the end of January 2018 to kick off the writing year on a roll with a finished novel and exciting plans to develop and promote further with new storylines and characters.
Final question, where can we support you and your writing?
