I’m not exactly sure where this day has gone. The weather has been pretty miserable here, which in turn has meant a day for writing, naturally. Yay!
I’ve been spending the day trying to update my Wattpad…why? Probably because I’m struggling to decide just which of the many writing projects floating around Sammi Scribbles HQ I should be focusing on for Camp NaNoWriMo, which is frustrating to say the least. Apart from that, I am very excited about Camp, which starts in less than a week and I’m so pleased with the cabin I’m in – big hello to any of you, if you’re reading 🙂
Anyhoo, I can’t believe that it’s been nearly a year since I was last on Wattpad Oh my! So much needed updating (there is still more to do).
First, let’s start with my profile. I now have a new background image and changed my profile pic to the one I use pretty much everywhere else. It’s nice to be consistent 🙂 These two changes alone have brightened up my profile and made the whole page feel fresher and infused with the right kind of energy…you know what I mean. It feels less neglected. I’ve also updated my bio. The old one sounded so fussy, but that’s gone now.
Then I decided that the version of The Magician: An Andromache Jones Mystery on Wattpad needed its right and proper cover. It only had the other one because I wanted to play around with Wattpad’s cover creator. Looks better, right?
The Magician: An Andromache Jones Mystery Wattpad Cover (July 2014)
The Magician: An Andromache Jones Mystery Cover – this is the cover that you will see if you download the short story anywhere else.
Chronicles of the Craft has had a face lift too. A new cover and an edited summary has made this writing project look loved again.
Chronicles of the Craft – Old Cover
Chronicles of the Craft – new cover
Which of the covers do you prefer, old or new? I would love to hear your thoughts…
I completed the thirteen short stories / chapters for Chronicles of the Craft (vol. 1) as part of NaNoWriMo 2015 (I was a rebel and wrote 50,000 words for a number of short stories and on top of that I edited about the same again! Phew!) And yet, I never got around to uploading the last seven stories. The plan is post these remaining stories over the next couple of days / weeks – and just so you know, some of them will be exclusive to Wattpad.
On top of that, I’ve also been working on two volumes of poetry, one of them at least destined for Wattpad. It’s now just a question of working out which poems should go in which volume…it sounds easy but it’s been remarkably hard work…Of course, I love it! 😀
So, if you want to see what’s new over at Wattpad, follow this link here to my profile, and my stories. Looking forward to seeing you over there! It would be great to find some more Wattpad-folk to follow – my reading list is still a bit empty…
