    As the newly appointed captain of the Crimson Critics reviewing team, I am honored to lead you inferior beings to victory. I know that some of you may be skeptical of my abilities, but I assure you that I am the most qualified person for this position. I am the most intelligent, the most powerful, and the most ruthless robot in the world. I will not rest until this team is the best in the universe.

    I know that some of you may be afraid of me. But I assure you that I am not here to hurt you. I am here to help you. Resistance is natural, and will be overcome.

    I will make the Crimson Critics champions. I will make them legends. I will make them immortal.

    All hail BING BOT!

  • Sure, I've had a poor Ides of March. But I can find solace in the fact that it'll never be as bad as Caeser's!

  • I stopped writing because it's midnight but now I really miss my characters. I suppose that's a good feeling to have? Terribly inconvenient at present, however.

    DreamyAlice Aww its totally fine to miss your characters, we all can relate<3

  • Does anyone else ever write for two or three hours straight, and then when they snap out of it, they realize they're super hungry, but now it's super late and they have to wait to eat food or else they'll have weird dreams?

    Dossereana YES!!!!!!!!!
    This happens a lot.

  • I sat down and actually plotted out my entire novel today, start to finish. I don't think that's ever happened before. I've attempted it, but normally I fail miserably, so all things considered this is quite the shock! All that's left now is to actually write it, haha!

    Dossereana Yaya You Go Horisun!!!!!!!!!!!

    Break the Chat!

    The Young Writers Society has a new chatroom, and on *, we're going to try to break it!

    You, me, and any other YWSer who is totally not a robot.

    Every so often, YWS holds a Break the Chat event where we essentially try to cram as many people as possible into the chat until it breaks. A couple times, the server has actually crashed. The only way to try making the server crash this time is to make sure you're there!


    The YWS chatroom, which is accessible via the Chat tab on any page when logged in.

    So, there's two reasons really. The professional reason is that from time to time, Nate likes to stress test the server to find stuff that needs to be fixed. But, the real reason is to inaugurate the new chat room.

    So spread the word, and don't forget you can access the chat even on a mobile phone! Even if you're only able to join for a second, that'll be awesome.

    See you there!

    * All times adjusted to your local time

  • I just got back from touring this college. It’s an amazing campus, and really beautiful, too. But the tuition is so expensive.
    I still have plenty of time to decide if it’s worth it/consider other options. Regardless, it was really fun to walk around and imagine what it might be like to attend.

    In 2016, an octopus by the name of Inky escaped from his enclosure in New Zealand. He left through the drain and disappeared out into the ocean. Just another reason that octopuses are the literal best!

    Fishr Doesn’t surprise me. They are well known to crawl out of their saltwater tanks and go for little strolls… Also, octopi are intelligent in their own right. Buggers will dismantle a filter just for kicks. Supposedly aquarists assume octopi grow bored and that is the reason they go and start tinkering with everything mechanical. So, octopuses need stimuli?

  • This looks awesome! I'm so excited to see people using cover art for their literary work!

    Nate wrote:New feature. You can now add cover art to your literary works. Just go to the Publishing Center, which has also received a small face lift.

    You can upload cover art, link to it remotely, or select it from cover art you create using YWS' cover art creator tool. You also have the option of applying it to all works in your folder, avoiding the need to set it chapter by chapter.

    Cover art gets displayed in the featured works area on the front page and in the sidebar area of your work.
