Two famous local writers were invited to share their Webnovel journeys on the stage next to Webnovel booths (NO. 2-74 to 2-76) on September 13. Both writers started writing on Webnovel for less than half year to reach an income of millions of pesos. TheBlips is a 26-year-old-housewife, she now considers writing on Webnovel as her dream job. Popular works from TheBlips include: THE CEO’S WOMAN with 12 million pageviews and THE VILLAIN’ S WIFE with 3 million pageviews. The other writer, Kazzenlx is a primary school teacher who used to feel depressed for years before she started writing on Webnovel, now she constantly encounters readers publicly confessing their love to her and her book. Writing helped Kazzenlx imagining funny and romantic scenes; and as a result, she’s filled with hopes and happiness. Kazzenlx’s famous novel I LOVE YOU MONSTER received 14 million pageviews.
