My dad's friend gave me some advice on how to get a fan base, which turns out I am doing way better than he did when he first started out with doing the media out pour of his book. Just by me going out to do Open Mic night at the coffee shop is producing word of mouth demand of the story. He told me to return to the first chapter after I had gotten it edited by my beta reader and go from there.

He says when you do Open Mic night at any shop that allows free form recitals, take your story chapter with you and read it. People will either like it or really like it to where they ask you about the story that you read if there is a book to it and where can they buy it at. Turn those people into your fan base and you will be one step ahead of any normal writer.

hey :) a quick question. You accept deviations only in English? or it can be in any other language?

It can be in other languages, not just English.

I'm very open to other spoken languages as writing is universal as it brings many people from other countries together. We may not know what that person looks like or how they behave but their writing draws us in and that's what I love about writing, it brings people together in ways that some people don't understand.

Hello! I am Medi, and my partner is Strong. We are looking to join contests, participate in trades (Sorry, we only provide literary deviations!), receive prompts, or anything else that will challenge us. There is a general consensus of things we will and won't do on our profile, don't be afraid to throw ideas! Ideas that are used will be credited by whomever gave it to us.

Usually when we get contest news from our affiliates we will post them in the group's journal informing all members of contests. We may hold our own soon.
