Wattpad is a place where you can read, write, give critiques to other writers, and talk to other writers like you. Some people have gotten publishing deals because of Wattpad, but I'm not so sure about it. You can upload chapters of your book whether that be all or a little bit. Every book on there is free to read. That being said, will this wreck my chances of being published? If I post a book on there and then decide to trad publish it that is!
