As some of you know, the Wattpad Block Party is an online event, held on the Wattpad profile of its host – USA Today bestselling author Kelly Anne Blount. Due to her participation in a program called Wattpad Futures, she had to remove the posts from the older Wattpad Block Parties from her profile.

Some of the tips will only be present in one category and some will appear in several categories.
