Wattpad’s official site says that "it is social platform that connects people through words." We totally agree. It is a place where you can post stories, poems, and articles. Its popularity is growing rapidly because new writers can also get acknowledged. The first step to using this site is to register yourself by choosing a username. This Penlighten article gives you some unique and great username ideas.
You may have thought of a name, but chances are that it might not be available, so try altering it. Use meaningful numbers, underscores, or simply change the spelling without changing the meaning. Draw inspiration from your favorite book or song. You can also use something related to the genre you want to write on.
Wattpad is a community where anyone can register for free and write poems, stories, or articles. It was launched in 2006 and has given many new writers a chance to showcase their talent. Members can submit their posts through the website or the application. It also provides options to view others’ books, like them, or comment on them. This community has a “What’s Hot List” which features stories that have been viewed and voted the most. The “Featured Story List” is mostly written by professional writers or are self-published. It also provides members a chance of winning the annual “Watty Awards” contest. Some are held for poetry and some for books, but anyone who has an account can participate. The best part is that some renowned authors are also members, and they hold contests where you, as a member, can participate.
A username is the first thing a reader is going to read so, it is going to attract a wider audience if it’s catchy and cool. You can choose to be very random and pick a name about anything under the sun. You can keep band/music-inspired names. Some would prefer a cute name, while others may prefer something that is related to their genre. No matter what you like, here is a list of mixed name suggestions.
- Vindex (Latin)
You can alter these names as you like or combine them or add any other words. Don’t miss a great opportunity to make good use of your writing talent and join Wattpad.
