It’s getting hard

I’m kind of at a loss on how to get my story out there anymore.  I’ve advertised on Facebook, Twitter, WattPad itself, and I’ve asked all my friends and family to pass on the link if they know anyone who likes that type of story, but the read count is still barely trickling up.  It’s sort of demotivating.  I guess it’s good that I’m not writing the story to gain anything like money.  I enjoy what I’m writing.  That’s what counts to me.

But one of the reasons I enjoy writing is so that other people can enjoy what I write, and I’m just not getting that impression.  I only have one follower on WattPad and that’s a family member.  I’m the only one voting for my story.  I’m at a loss on what else I can do.

This is definitely teaching me patience.  I was reading a book on how to get started with WattPad and the author said that the first story he posted had 13,000 reads by three months and that 13,000 is on the low end of what a successful story should have.  I’d die if I had 13,000 reads in three months!!!  (Die happy, don’t get me wrong.)

I just wish I knew of something else I could do to get this story out there.
