  • Remember to draw on your observations of real life rather than how things are in fiction! There is no better way to create realistic characters than to pay attention to real people.

  • congrats on the star!

  • This is your friendly reminder that the writing process does not finish when you reach the end of the story! Editing is VERY important.

  • Hi and welcome to YWS! I'm Mage. If you have any questions about YWS, let me know!

    (And if I'm ever not online, junior moderators, global moderators and admins definitely would be able to help you out with any questions or concerns you have. Other YWSers would be happy to help you as well!)

    Before you get settled in, you might want to swing by the rules thread to see what's allowed on the site, and the FAQ thread to figure out how the site works. It explains a lot about the basics of the site, like how to post your works and how to get points. It was really useful to me back when I first joined the site, so hopefully it'll be just as useful for you! :)

    Some fun areas of the site you might want to learn more about are the forums, blogs and Roleplay Section. The forums have fun games, writing activities, and places to talk about whatever writing project you're working on. The blogs aren't used as much as the other sections of the site, but you can post little life updates there. And the Roleplay Section is a place to collaborate on stories - either by roleplaying or co-writing novel-style stories.

    (We actually recently revamped the RP Section, so there's lot of cool stuff to check out there!)

    I hope you enjoy your time on YWS!
