As much as most of us didn't want to leave WriteOn, it's quickly becoming a reality. Several people have been working hard trying to set up our own WriteOn community within the Wattpad community, and so this week we would like to encourage everyone to give it a go.
Several threads have been set up for us there, including this one to get you started:
Sorry, no idea. the one to ask is Michael or R.C. They are the ones setting everything up over there, and I know Michael did a lot of research first. A lot of our group have gravitated over to there, and Wattpad is trying to make our transition as painless as it can. I think they have thousands of members so I'm sure publication rights have been discussed. I don't know of any other sites WO people have moved to en masse, so I am assuming that Wattpad is our new home.
I went over there, searched for moving day and found the first story posted. I could read it, apparently complete. There were sign-up and log-in buttons, but I didn't need either. This could be a problem, since open publishing on a widely-read site does count as previously-published and matters to some agents and publishers. For a hobbyist this does not matter, for an aspiring 'commercial' author it does.
Is there some way on wattpad to hide work behind a password and keep it 'private within a club' rather than 'published to the world'?
Well, I had a look at the interface and it does not look intuitive to me. But if we are going there, then I will go. And I'm happy to be proven wrong. However, my professional training instilled a certain caution in me. Absolutely essential in my field.
As it is, I don't use password managers; rather the old Mk1 brain is entrusted to remember passwords. So, I like to keep the number I have to remember to a minimum.
That, and I have SA Wilson's files to download. She used a password manager, and I've had to crack the keychain to access her stuff. It helps that I set up the admin account on the family Mac.
Not intuitive at all! You're right.
My "password manager" is a little black book, updated by pen. I've had too many crashes happen in my life to trust these high-faluting machines. I don't rely on the cloud for storage, and don't understand why anyone would. Used to be a computer programmer, and know how fallible the whole system is.
I'm amazed at your code-cracking feat. Way to go!
