Hi, I'm Aelita.

I found this website through a friend during NaNoWriMo when I was seriously frustrated. The writing tips are amazing.

I write fiction, surrealism, and poetry. I am really not a novelist, I find that short stories are a much better medium for me. I have gotten into scriptwriting though and I hope I can improve...greatly.

Anyway, I love the site already and if you have any tips/tricks or whatnot that you'd like to share with me, please do!

Surrealism, ah! I expect some dreams turned to words from you dear!

Oooo! I love your avatar, Aelita! I'm Aloha, wonderful to have you aboard!

Surrealism, poetry, fiction.....sounds like you can whip up something real interesting! If ever you need a review on a piece, PM me, I'm totally happy to read! How long have you been writing?

As for YWS....

You're only going to fall deeper in love with it hopefully! I certainly did, teehee! It’s like the fountain of youth; an endless abundance of knowledge, tips, tricks, etc, of every avenue literary works have to offer.

There are storybooks where you can role-play with other YWSers, those are fun! :D As for reviewing, here's a simplified thread explaining how it works exactly.

You can also jump into the chat for instant conversation! Or lurk around the forum and jump right in there -- party at your leisure! :D

For anything specific you're curious about that may not have been addressed yet, don't shy away from sending a PM to a moderator - their names are high-lighten in green.

They can most certainly point you in the right direction, and as a whole, YWS is an open, fun and friendly community willing to help you if need be. That's the purpose of the site, right? Writers helping writers. :D
Point me to the beach!

Hi Lienne! I'm Amy. :)

Welcome to YWS" You've joined at a really awesome time, as the site has recently just been renovated to become YWS: Apollo. It's all new and shiny, which also means that new and old members alike are finding their feet. :wink: If you want to find out more, just click on the big red button on the right hand side.

If you're confused about anything, just drop me (or anyone in green) a PM. We're all happy to help, it's what we're here for. Also, if you want anything reviewed feel free to ask me, too. I enjoy it. :)

See you around. Have fun!
