Hi All!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my story!

Wow! This is scary. This is my first story on Wattpad...ever!  And of course, I had to make it tough on myself by publishing a somewhat unconventional story. Well, the story isn't so unconventional, but how I'm telling it is. It's written in script form (a modified script format since Wattpad doesn't support screenplays) and structured like a TV Show--with episodes and everything. I'm hoping this doesn't prove too challenging for folks to read. I tried to write the story as prose, but it just wasn't working because it's not how I see it in my head. So, since the story plays out more like a TV show for me, that's how I'm writing it.

NOTE - I do use script headers which provide you with the location of the scene and the general time of day. So,

INT. = Interior scene. I'll add the exact location and whether it's Day or Night or even sometimes things like, Moments Later

EXT. = Exterior scene. All the same information as above.

The Backstory:

So, the story -- The Otherworlders -- has been with me for a long time. Most of the main characters are as familiar to me as friends and family. The story's themes: striving for tolerance, exploring one's own identity, and pushing yourself far past your comfort zone, have been important themes to me and ones that I'm so happy and eager to explore on Wattpad.

And heck, if Lin-Manuel Miranda can set a Founding Father's story to hip hop music, why can't I put a script on Wattpad, right?

So, I hope you enjoy the story as it unfolds. Please don't be shy. Even if you're reading this as a Paid Story, I'd love to know what you think and how you're feeling through your votes and comments. I always make a point of engaging with my readers, and I'd love to hear from you!
