  • You've written some terrific poems this year! Just wanted to let you know we're collecting some poetry for the "Best of YWS 2023" Collection in case you hadn't heard of it yet. There's more information right here: The 'Best of YWS' Poetry Collection (Deadline to submit is Nov 10)

  • Some prompts for writers who need ideas:
    1. You picked up a wallet from the floor. Being cheeky, you checked its contents, but discovered something unexpected.
    2. A secret note tells you to go to the arcade. It turns out someone has your favorite plushie hostage and you have to do a list of silly tasks to bring your favorite plushie back.
    3. On a train, you fall asleep. When you wake up and exit the doors, you enter a beautiful world that entices you to stay forever. But is it really all it seems? And can you ever get out?
    4. In a library, you accidentally meet your favorite book character/s hiding in one of the lesser visited aisles of the place.
    5. Every time your hair strand falls, you lose a memory. When a new strand grows, a new memory is formed or an old memory resurfaces. Apparently, your food accidentally has someone else's hair in there. And what happened next was strange.

    if ever you decide to use these, please tag me hehe
    I do want to see what you guys come up with this :)

  • Why are so many people writing about writer's block? That's incredibly interesting...Do people usually get writer's block around this time? (Because I have writer's block right now HAHAHA)

    IcyFlame I have writer's block more often than I don't

  • For me, birthdays are 80% gratefulness, 15% happiness from the greetings, 5% existential crisis because you don't know if what you're doing is right and at the same time you feel like you just winged it your way to the age you are now and you feel so old thinking that you're supposed to be matured at this age but you're not yet you feel a sense of loneliness at the same time knowing that a whole bunch of other people just had their birthdays on the same day so is the celebration really...

    (sorry random thought I had to let out. and yeah, this had poem potential lol)
    (and no it's not my birthday...yet)

  • The Hero's Dilemma

  • and once more the green room was filled.
    this particular knight was thrilled.
    though some works seem to be great beasts
    she was fine with their release.
    alpacaboss can't wait to see
    the green room again bare and free.
    Yet the green room was a symphony
    of the young writer's society.
    one day, she shall see that sight.
    For now, she'll let her works take flight.

  • LuminescentAnt Why do you you like alpacas? Like why not llamas.

    KaiaJersaga What attracts you and draws you into writing the types of poems you write? Where do you get your inspiration?

  • It's August! One of my favorite months <3

  • Quote by alpacaboss: I write to tame the flurry of thoughts in my head.
    Read by KaiaJersaga as: I write to tame the furry thoughts in my head.

    My brain already had me thinking alpacas XD.

    alpacaboss BAHAHHAH that works sooo well lol

  • you know you're a writer when you come up with three sequels, two side stories and two prequels to a story that you have not finished yet. (aka me with "An Intricate Symphony")

    GengarIsBestBoy Honestly sometimes I feel like I’m making fanfics and AUs of my own ocs
    Jul 28, 2023

    alpacaboss Same!

    Like fanfics of the Main OC and fanfics of the supporting OCS and AUs where it's more dramatic and AUs where it's not
