  • Spearmint people can compete to write as many words as they can in a certain amount of time, like 30 minutes or something! :D you can grab a friend or ask someone in a wfp to do a word war with you, and it can motivate both of you to write =P

    hello!!! Candy Part Seven is up now :))

  • Does creativity burnout exist? Because I think I wrote too much.

    BluesClues It definitely does, in fact! It's called "creative burnout" and can happen when a creator does a lot of creative work constantly over a long period of time (or even a short period of time) with few or no breaks. Sometimes, switching it up with a different creative activity (like painting instead of writing) can help, but often it means you need a break!

  • welcome to YVS!!


  • What do you do when something so supremely embarrassing happens to you that you feel like you just want to die there and then because you can’t face the person it happened in front of ever again?

    avianwings47 Honestly...just wait it out. Chances are that in five years, that person won't even remember that interaction. Trust me, I've done too many supremely embarrassing things to count.

  • I want to join this so much, but I'm fifteen and I've got school and I cannot be awake at two AM which is what it will be in my time zone.
