  • It says there are no YWS birthdays today. How?

    OrabellaAvenue I think that happens a fair amount of days, although it's kind of weird. With that many users, wouldn't one of their birthdays be today?
    Nov 27, 2023

    spottedpebble Yeah!

  • The bottom of the YWS page wrote:Irresponsibly-conceived assignments don't deserve responsibly-executed complies.
    — Persistence

    Thought all the stressed out college students on here would like this. (And every person with stressful assignments)

  • I kind of want to scroll through all the literary works to see if anything was posted on my birthday.

    OrabellaAvenue I've wanted to do that too! Haven't scraped up enough time to do it, unfortunately.

  • 1 reason you love reading and writing? Writing lets me tell all the stories that are cramped up there in my head, and reading lets me escape into other people's stories and worlds. I like mirror books and window books, but my favorites are ones that are a little bit of both.
    9 adjectives to describe yourself? Nostalgic, creative, bossy, accepting, weird, awesome, organized, chaotic, poetic.

    YWS member shout-out? @kagehana13 bc kagehana13 knows why ^-^ (I will never forget your niceness that creative writing day)
    Early-morning productivity or late-night chaos? I usually like late-night chaos, but recently it's been more like early-morning chaos with a tiny bit of productivity, and then late-night productivity and chaos in equal parts.
    Are you tired? yeeeeeeeeeeeessssss.
    Reason to smile? I don't have to go to school yet!
    Sweet or spicy? a lil bit of both

    One thing you love about yourself? I can make pretty much anything if you give me enough tape, paper, and time.
    Favorite holiday? Hmmm... IDK, that's a hard one. I like fall in general, I like Halloween, I like the feeling you get around all the December holidays, I'm hoping Valentine's Day will actually be fun in these years, (I doubt it will,) and I like tons of others that I just can't think of right now 'cause I'm tired. (See above section.)

    Weirdest thing you’ve done in public? Dressing up like a flip flop at Halloween and walking around my elementary school handing people a pen so they could sign the cardboard sole/back of the shoe/costume.
    Raw childhood memory? Sitting at a park near my house and posing at the end of a tiny slide for a picture w/my little brother.
    If you could have a single magic power what would it be? The ability to pause and unpause time.
    Travelling or homesick? Both, depending on the location.
    If you were invited to attend Hogwarts, which Hogwarts House would you choose? Ravenclaw! Every single one of the tests I've taken has put me there.
    New username? Oof, I don't know... Let's go with stripedheart.
    Growing up? The worst thing that's ever happened/is happening to me.

    YWS favorite event? Haha, I haven't been around long enough for this...
    Age? It's on my profile!
    Your favorite fictional character created by you? I really like Hope Grace, even though she hasn't fully been created yet, but I'm really looking forward to writing Mac and Sammy's story. Though right now I'd say Kelly Shieman or Anabell Andrea because Kelly's from my NaNo and I have a plan for her, and Ana has so many layers I'm still peeling away at. (And I also think I'm going to like writing the love interest in Kelly's story a lot.)


  • AilahEvelynMae what is something that makes you happy?

    are you more introverted or extroverted?

    Nov 16, 2023

    Spoiler! :
    @AilahEvelynMae: finding poems, the bracelet I made yesterday that may or may not have a specific pattern that represents a little part of me snuck into it. <-<=>->
    Introverted. All the way.

    Nov 16, 2023

  • 50% of my NaNo goal done!

    AilahEvelynMae AMAZIBNG!!!!!

  • How many days did I sit alone,
    Alone on the floor waiting for someday,
    Someday when I would be grown and have,
    Have my poems and stories somewhere for others to,
    To read and,
    And enjoy but now what I do is open my computer- socialize a bit- use hashtags for fun- and go,
    Go to post my work for testing and suggestions to improve so I'll do even better when I'm grown-

    Pouring my soul into each poem,
    Over the sky and the moon for safe, introverted socialization,
    Eating words for breakfast and
    Taking my time to enjoy living and anonymously showing my skills at writing,
    Reading others' amazing works,
    YWS is the place to stay, happy birthday.

    #BirthdayAcrostics (The first one isn't that good because I only mention hashtags once.)

  • When you go through your NaNo and are so desperate to up your word count that instead of actually writing you just change a few unnecessary contractions into separate words.

    Snoink Omg, YES.

  • I'm writing a scene for my NaNo with a particularly poisonous character in it, and it's making my stomach squirm. It has to be written though. Conflict!
    (Warning: has a kiss in it, in case you don't like that sort of thing.)
    Spoiler! :
    On my NaNo I wrote:"I thought you said Greg likes Landon," said Lindsay. She had a twisted up smile on her face that made Kelly think that Lindsay hadn't really thought she heard them say that.

    Laylah shook her head. "No, they were saying that Greg likes me!"

    "Oh, that makes sense," Lindsay said. She turned to Greg. "What would it be like if you really did like Landon, Greg?" Her voice sounded broken and mangled and full of burrs and thorns. "Well then, we'd all hate you for it, for sure." Lindsay slammed her hands down on the table and leaned into Greg's face, which was turning paler and paler. "What would you think about that?" she asked in a dangerous whisper. "But of course you don't like boys. Of course you're not gay," she spat the word out like it was toxic and she wanted to use it to poison Greg. "You'd never be as stupid to like stupid Landon Ulloa. And if you did," Lindsay paused so the words would have more effect. "We'd make sure you never forget it." With that, she leaned in even closer, grabbed Greg's head, and kissed him with a ferocity that Kelly had never seen before.

    Greg wrestled away from Lindsay. Kelly thought that he looked like Lindsay had just pushed him off a cliff. He was horrified. Greg quickly gathered up all his uneaten food and shot outside before their grade was excused to go to lunch recess. Kelly turned to look at Lindsay. She had a strange expression on her face: a mix of triumphant, pleased, and also... barbaric, cruel, brutal. Inhuman, almost.

    All the girls laughed, but Kelly just sat there.

    spottedpebble I feel so bad for making this character go through this pain! :smt086 :smt089
    Poor Greg. He's not even the main character. This is a memory scene setting up a bit of the MC, Kelly's, background. (Greg may or may not make an appearance in the NaNo story later.)
