  1. Just came across your exchange with another writer on WP and wish you’d have kept your account on there. It was a strange misunderstanding from what I saw and none of it your fault. But I found your blog and that’s what matters, so I’ll keep track of you and your writing here πŸ™‚


    1. Thanks for getting in touch. I had been thinking about closing my WP account for various reasons (mostly because for the amount of time I was investing I didn’t feel I was getting the benefit to my writing). That unfortunate exchange was just the last straw that convinced me it was the right move. Good luck with your writing πŸ™‚


  2. I was just looking for you on WP also, wanting to reply to a comment you had posted on Zombie Nights (you had a fine idea there about Princess and her potions – I wanted to say I wished I had thought of it myself) – but I’m glad to find you here at least so I won’t lose track of your great writing!


  3. Hey Melissa!

    I was about to start my critique of The Neanderthal Girl and find that you left Wattpad! I completely understand but I’m sorry to see you go. πŸ˜₯ Your comments on Ahnera always made my week and I’m sorry I never got to return the favor. I was really looking forward to checking out your work.

    If you’re looking for another site to host your writing, I have found a nice small community at scriggler.com. It is significantly smaller than Wattpad, but has a much less time consuming marketing structure. The owner, Dmitry, is super nice and advertises everyone’s work on twitter (I don’t know if that’s your thing but I’ve gained readers that way).

    No matter what you decide going forward, please let me know if I can help in anyway possible. Beta reader, critique, friend, whatever. πŸ™‚ You’re one of the nicest people I’ve met on Wattpad, it sucks that some people are dicks, but your network isn’t going anywhere. Okay essay over. πŸ˜€

    And I mean it about the helping thing. I feel bad that I waited so long to do your critique and I want to make it up to you.

    Okay essay really over now. πŸ˜€


    1. Hello Paige! Lovely to hear from you. I met some great people on WP and I’m touched that some of you have made the effort to look me up! Thanks for the tip about scriggler. Good luck with your writing. You are very talented πŸ™‚


  4. Hi Melissa, I just thought I’d leave my two cents here as well: we miss you and hope you’ll come back!!! I’ve heard from Pete @peerglen and Lina @linahanson who are also sad to see you go. You were a great new presence on the site and I can tell by this list of comments that you will be missed by many! I’m going to try to find the subscription button to your site (which is very cool, btw).
