I published in September but until now its still 200s… so its ok. some takes time but all that matters is that you dont give up. Even better is because I entered for a contest. Bum didnt win lol but its ok. Another thing is maybe you can try enter contests.

You have to keep promoting your story and it may not seem like it but every time you promote yourself it increases the chances of you getting noticed or your story out there to the general public for others to read. When I first started off I barely had any reads but I kept asking others to review my story, I did read for reads, shared my story on various social media platforms and eventually, my story started getting some recognition. I also created an IGTV page where I shared clips or spoilers to the story on Instagram. You may not think about to promote your story on social media platforms doesn’t help but it does since its a main took for promoting things and communicating nowadays. So keep asking others to review your story promote your story on here do more read for reads, share and promote your story on Instagram as well. It may take time but eventually, you will see the type of change you have been wanted to see when it comes to getting your story noticed.

I published in September too. I don’t even have a 100 yet. I’m not even sure when they have contests or if I could write a story for one. It would have to be something that appeals to me.


#49

I’d just like to say, Thank you all for your kind words and advice! You all have been very helpful and I’m hoping to try some of the things that were suggested. I am really glad for the forum. Thank you all for your encouragement and support! It’s very appreciated!

#53

I feel the same way! That’s why I always ask for screenshot, if you want we can do r4r (on instagram @/annat.stories or just pm me here :smile:)


#54

I would be happy to do a r4r with you. You are doing all you have needed to do to get the reads, remember your quality as a writer is far more important. It is understandable though as I place substance over reads but there are moments where it sucks to not see the read count increase for a while lol


#55

Yes of course. Thank you.


#56

Yes, I would like to do a read 4 read with you. I’m on IG: demon.buttercup_writes I will find you there for your story info.


#57

Yes, I will do a read for read with you. Are you on Instagram? I’m on there demon.buttercup_writes It’s easier to do on there but I can do it here to if you’d like. Just let me know.


#58

That’s not a problem, we can still continue the r4r if you want? Let me know :blush:


#59

Okay but I still only have four episodes. I have 5 & 6 done but I’m still waiting on background approvals. I feel like a broken record saying that. LOL
I could message you when they are published if you want?


#60

No problem, let me know when it’s out, dm me on instagram :slight_smile:


#61
