    "Picsart is the best app for Wattpad covers in my opinion. It has all sorts of options to make your cover super cute. I wrote a cheesy fanfic and I managed to make the cover in sync with my story, a lot of people love both the cover and the story so i'm thankful."

While it is true that storytelling hasn't gone way past the print and paper medium, it's definitely found a new platform: the internet. This especially holds true for Wattpad. Positioned at the fore of storytelling, the site is an avenue for people to read and create stories of different genres. And with a growing number of Wattpad stories in tow, it is set to take publishing to whole new heights. This has propelled users to find different tips to gain increased readership in the platform. One of the most pragmatic courses of action for this is to use the best apps to make book covers. If you pay close attention, you would know that each Wattpad cover maker plays a crucial role in catapulting your stories into the limelight. In other words, if you do not put an enticing book cover, there's a big chance that your craft would fall beneath the radar of TV producers. After all, first impressions really do matter.

But that's not the only thing you should pay heed to. Did you know that impeccable use of language is of paramount importance? Yes, as Wattpad gears toward a newfound partnership with Sony Pictures Television, more stories are prepped for some screen time. Well, in case you didn't already know, the story-sharing platform has long set the Philippine TV industry abuzz. Some works have also been turned into Netflix movies and Hulu TV shows. See The Kissing Booth and Light as a Feather. This time, Sony and Wattpad's partnership is aimed at identifying up-and-coming stories that could be the next big screen hits. Sony will analyze sentence structure, word use, and grammar to tap the potential of a story to become a fad. Now it might be time to ramp up your writing skills!
