YWS is growing to be pretty large, and since I haven't asked this question for a while, how'd you find out about us? Search engine? Friend? General word of mouth? Another forum? Let us know! Especially since almost thirty people have signed up over the past three days...

I guess I probably skipped over it on the search engine once or twice, but I mostly found this place from the many TYWC members who were often mentioning it. I was astounded when I got here at how awesome this place truly was.

I actually went looking for a writing site on Google because most of the ones I had belonged to had "died." This site was great! Everyone was active and welcoming. Even though I didn't get as many critiques as I had hoped for, it was still a really nice community and had great forums for things besides writing. Most of the sites didn't have that and I thought it was great because you could get to know everyone better; and see what they look like! :) So, yeah, that's how I found YWS.


P.S: I'm happy I did too, I love the members here. ;)

EDIT: And Nate too on RK. I had forgotten about that until Sam mentioned it. I still visit it sometimes, but it still isn't as great as this one. If I can even give it that...(RK, not YWS)

Honestly I cant remember how I got here, or why Im still here.
You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, instead, you should read every single book to see what every book is about before you even come close to judging its viability.

hehe. I found this place several times.. when Nate first posted the link on the now dead and deleted YFW, and then El and Crys talked me into joining. EBM was here then, and Arvy, too, I think, Tara soon after.. KayJuarn.. can't recall everyone else off the top of my head (I'd have to look at the member list, I've grown used to thinking of us as YWS, not as fragments of several decrepid writing sites).

Spoons, I invited you here! Hunter told me about it, just like every other writing forum I've ever joined.

TBR: It was ME who invited you to YWS? *Sticks out chest* *Feels Honored*

But yeah. I voted "Other forum" even though I really found out about it on the TYWC chatwall and we all know that TYWC is not a forum.
when there's nowhere to go, it's time to grow up.
