Reading Plan: January 2015

So, as you may remember, I have a goal of reading 26 books this year. I've got about two weeks left in January to finish two of the books I'm currently reading. I've finished one, but I know that I have it in me to finish two more.

Don't you want to publish to make money? Wattpad doesn't hold the rights to your work, so you can publish it anywhere you want. Wattpad's aim is to find you an audience. I'm sorely lacking an audience, and to be completely honest, I'd really love to find my love of writing, and make it less of a chore. If I'm writing and getting immediate feedback, then it might reignite my passion. Do people really do well on Watt…
