    Haha! I heard long ago how useless a writing degree alone is. Thankfully combined degrees are much safer...but hey, we'll see!
    just incase you do end up being a toilet attendant do you want to join my society? basically at the university im going to along with other people i know who will be at different unis we will each be setting up a society in each uni for potential cleaners/toilet attendants so they have somewhere to go when they finish their degree.

    Just wondering what experiences people have had with publishing their own content online? I've used Authonomy and Wattpad in the past and I've had a blog for the last four years. Does anyone else struggle with how time-consuming it can be?

    Also, what sites do people use and what have you picked up on over the years?
    I've had a really positive experience writing online I used to use Wattpad and Figment a lot, but now I mainly use MissLiterati.com, it's a much smaller community, and is not as social as Wattpad (but they're working on improvements now) but it also means it's easier to get noticed unlike Wattpad where it's very difficult. I've yet to experience plagiarism which I'm thankful for lol.

    Oooh, interesting! The problem I've had with wattpad, and the reason why I've only just gone back to it after a year, is that there was a really unhealthy atmosphere and the system for getting noticed was so corrupt and immature.

    Tell me more about MissLiterati? :-)

    Ohh right. I've only recently joined back up again, but I'm still not feeling it.

    Miss Literati is more of a female based writing site, so it's aimed for teen/young adult girls. Even though for some reason there's been a rise in younger girls which can be quite annoying... It's a very easy layout, easy to navigate. But like I said they're working on improvements after putting out a blog asking what we want. They do some really good monthly competitions, and an annual one called Story Of The Year, where everyone's able to vote for their favourite story. It started in 2012, a friend of mine one the first one and I actually won it for 2013 2014 starts November and ends next February. They've also introduced Story Of The Summer, a similar thing to Story Of The Year but it's a little more low key. I suggest at least checking it out and seeing if it's something you might like

    it is quite straightforward ; you will need to provide bank codes ( if you intend to make money ! ) and there is an American Tax Declaration thing to fill in but not too complicated.
