  • When you start a new book without finish an old one... In my defense, I had it for over a month and had to return it to the library (I read sooo slowly). It's so sad because I liked the old book and I was almost finished with it too...

  • Man, I haven't published anything yet. I have this story I've been holding onto because I've planned literally none of it. I didn't want to post it in case I had to change something, buuuuut, I also really want to know what other people think about it. Maybe I'll polish just the first page or so and post that.

  • 1k words into my WIP... I'm not actually sure how long to make the first chapter. I've heard 3k words (6 pages), 5k words (10 pages), even 8k, words (16 pages). Technically a chapter can be any length, but still I'm debating on how long to make it.

    Hey MagicMilk! Welcome to YoungWritersSociety!

    My name's looseleaf! If you need any help navigating the site, feel free to ask me. Junior moderators, other global moderators, or an administrator would be happy to help you as well!

    To start you off on your YWS journey, here's some handy-dandy links:

    - following guidelines are important, so please stop by the FAQs and rules threads if you have the time.
    - to earn points to post your own works, you have to review! the Green Room is a great place to start, since you get extra points for reviewing works in it!
    - speaking of reviewing, writing good reviews is essential! the YWS Critique Sandwich S'more explains how to write a good review.
    - YWS has some very lovely people, so hop by the People's Tab to get to know them!
    - sometimes YWSers get together in write-ins to write and discuss our writing! check out I'm Writing, Come Join Me! to see if any are currently running!

    That's all I have for now! If you have any questions/thoughts/concerns, please feel free to PM me or any other moderators. Have a wonderful day!

Don't sit down and write because you're a writer; sit down and write because you have something to say. And if the sea of ideas isn't flowing, well, just tell me about your day.
