The road to writing success is a varied one and on today’s show I talk to Leah Crichton about how she has found success via Wattpad. I’ve been interested in Wattpad for some time and, because of Leah and my friend Aaron Kite, I decided to take the plunge. You can now find Boyscouts of the Apocalypse in its entirety up on Wattpad. Just search for Michell Plested and you will find it.
Leah and I had a great discussion, which I am pleased to share with you today.
I also talk about a workshop I’m planning for school visits. It is about using your own experiences to create stories. I talk about it from a Young Adult perspective, but the technique works for all ages and genres.
And with that, let’s get this show on the road. I hope you enjoy it!
