How it works

The Story Insights report is generated using a machine-learning algorithm, unique to Wattpad. It evaluates your story against Watty Award winning stories, Paid Stories, and Wattpad Books, to rate your Writing Complexity and Reading Accessibility. It also scours over your story to highlight Reading Time, Sentence Length, Adverb Usage, and Word Repetition by part, while giving you benchmarks for each of these metrics. Having this feedback will help simplify your editing process, and enable you to improve both the quality and success of your storytelling.

What Wattpad writers have to say:

I couldn't ask for more writer-friendly help from Wattpad."
