This post is addressed to those of you that write/read web fiction. And who are interested in Reddit. The rest of you can just bugger off.
Ok, now that I’ve scared everyone away, I can continue this conversation with myself in peace.
I’ve been writing a serialized scifi blog as a for fun project side project. Lately though I’ve been looking into different ways to tap the very niche audience that actually follows web fiction. It’s been kind of cool! For example, there’s a whole web serial branch of NaNoWriMo called WebSeWriMo (Web Serial Writing Month). Whodathunk?!
Seeing as there was no Reddit category for web fiction, I decided to start my own: http://www.reddit.com/r/webfiction/
For those of you unfamiliar with Reddit, it’s basically a place to share links. So you post a link, people can vote it up or down and then comment on it. Think of it as a fast-paced hub for sharing the latest funny cat video.
If you’re an author it’s really not the best place to self-promote. Any attempts to sell your own work are immediately voted down. But blog posts that are fun/interesting are generally well-received. For awhile I had been posting under the science fiction category but I thought it might be fun to try and start this little web fiction community.
So if you’re interested, you should definitely check this out and subscribe to the group.
