How old do I have to be


#1

How old do I have to be to create an episode story?


#2

You have to be 13 to read stories on the app, but I don’t think you have to be any age to write a story. :slight_smile:


#3

Oh, I see that many authors are in there mid twenties and I’m quite young compared to them. I wouldn’t get into trouble for being a young teenager?


#4

You have to be 13, as long as you follow all of the guidelines then you won’t be in trouble. hope this helps.


#5

It does and I turned 13 a few months ago thank you :joy:


#6

The app is 13+ there are bunch more people under 20 don’t worry yourself about it, as long as you’re over 13 you are free to write your own story.

GOOD LUCK!


#7

There are lots of us 20+ writers, but we always welcome some younger people! You have to be 13+. If you are and you ever need some advice, I’m sure some of the older writers would love to help you out - including me!


#8

That’s very nice of you! I am 13 but I have been reading since I was 10 lol. I finally got to write last year so I am experienced you could say!! I absolutely love writing! Is it just me or is writing an escape from pain??


#9

Oh well I am just scared people will judge me off of my age and not read my story just because of my age. Should I reveal my true age or just say I’m 20-22?


#10

I would say you don’t need to divulge your age at all! Most people don’t!


#11

I agree!


#12

And I think if anything, people would be pleasantly surprised if you write good, grammatically correct story with a nice plot because of your age!


#13

Yeah, I wrote a story and the readers were like what age are you and I tell them 13 they are like, “What? YOU are thirteen?? You write like you are 22!!” And I’m like, “Well, I pay attention in Language Arts class so, yeah!” but people get surprised because how good my grammar is.


#14

That’s probably because there are people who are native English speakers and seniors in high school, yet their spelling and grammar is equivalent to an elementary school student😂


#15

SO true.


#16

I started writing nearly 2 years ago, when I was 12. I honestly don’t think I even fully proof-read either of my stories. They were awedul, I don’t know what I was thinking back then.

Closing due to one month of inactivity :slight_smile:
