I have opened an account in scribd, a friend suggested and after a cursory appraisal it appeared nice. Promised a solid number of readers, who may try your works if you have that magic in them. After all, i believe if you dont have that zing, no matter how hard you try to push sale your work wont stand for long.
I opened a free account (Dont have money to offer).
I loaded 11 posts (some containing multiple stories or poems)
some for free and some for their minimum charge- 0.99 USD
i categorized them under creative writing
I added a few common tags- sharmishtha basu, poems, stories, mini stories etc..
The questions are,
Am I walking in the right track? I wont mind earning from my writings as long as they have my name when they are published.
I will certainly love to be noticed by some literary agent or publisher.
How will I know if someone has bought my work and what will that buying mean?
How can I interact with other writers there? I tried to find them but could not.
my profile there is-
Any help will be a great help.
thanks and love.
