    happy birthday!

  • Happy cake day!

  • Happy birthday!

  • Hey, YWS. This isn't really an "I'm back" post. I'm not back. I just wanted to open up a line of communication for anyone who wants to talk. I've grown a lot politically and gotten really into feminism since I've left. Specifically radical feminism.

    I've really started to come into my own and learn how to be an adult human being with all the stuff that comes with that. I'm graduating at the end of this semester, so it's been quite the journey. Meanwhile, feminism has really opened my eyes to just how much my life is affected by being female and all the stuff that comes with that. Even if I'm disillusioned with the state of mainstream feminism and liberalism, I still think there's time to make positive change, and I'm proud to start to be a part of that change when I turn 18 and register to vote.

    Anyway, I'm probably not going to be back here, but you can catch me and all my radfem nerdiness (or my writing or just to talk) on tumblr @dy-quill. I'm almost always up to have a discussion. I don't think YWS has a lot of diversity when it comes to viewpoints, so I just want to share my point of view.

    Hey ink,
    Just wanted to say good luck wherever your life-journey and your writing take you. Whether you're taking a break for good or for a while from YWS - I wish you well. :)

  • I'm never on here anymore. Uhh, for anyone who cares (so probably no one), I'm vaguely considering trying to edit and publish a children's book. And I'm planning on coming out to my mom even though she's a homophobe and I'll probably cry. But what can you do? Other than not come out. Which is still on the table for now.

    It's really hard to find a good community of writers, and I'm glad I found on in YWS. I don't know if I'll ever use this place again, but I appreciate what it's done for me.

    I don't really know if this is like a goodbye post or whatever. I've kind of been removed from the site for a while now, so it's kind of belated if that's what this is. I just feel like I need to say something. So this is my something and a tentative goodbye

    I hope you're doing well! I haven't talked to you in a while. :/

  • Happy 🎂 Day, 'topus

  • Happy Cake Day!!

  • Hey! Have't seen you around for a while! Happy Cake day to You! :)

  • I might have had a strong first day of NaNo, but that's all over now. Hopefully I can catch up and make my goal for the month!

  • Doing NaNo as part of my creative writing class. We write all period every day we meet. My personal goal is 20k! If I can actually finish this novella, that would be even better

    keystrings Good luck with that! That's really neat.

  • I think I might actually be able to start writing again. It feels like it's been a long time. Maybe I'm ready to start again.
