    wakarimasen No worries! I used to take screenshots every time one of my stories made the front page. ;)

  • I can't believe I'm the featured member. I actually feel kind of bad because I haven't been reviewing as much lately. But holy crap. I'm blown away by this. I've only been a member for 2 months and I already have done so much and made so many friends. Thank you, YWS and all of its members. This community is amazing!


    ScarlettFire Congrats on FM!

  • I want to start plans for a new novel... But I don't know what to go with. I have 2 ideas that I would be interested in seeing how they develop.

    1) There are these twins and one abuses the other. It's really messed up and I think it'd be pretty sad. (the only reason why I wouldn't want to do this one is because I'm already working on a serious novel and I'm not sure how much angst and pain I can take)

    2) there's a smol, angry pianist. I don't really know what else, but I just like the vibe this thought gives me. It could be a romance. Not some serious romance, but a fun, lighthearted romp. Only thing is I know very little about romance and don't like it as a genre (so I'd feel like a bit of a hypocrite if I wrote one)

    Tell me what you think of each idea. I just need a push in the right direction.


    BluesClues I've been leaning in the direction of fun, lighthearted romps lately. With a dash of seriousness thrown in for balance.

    inktopus That's the way I've been leaning too, but I don't want to be biased and rule out my other option.

    I just posted Scolopendra chapter 4 I'm at 15k words now! Yay! @Zoom @Apricity @Ventomology


    Apricity Hey Storm, I know this comment is super late. Have you considered making a folder of Scolopendra in your portfolio section, that way all your chapters are nicely grouped together, and it makes them easier to find as well! c:

    inktopus No problem. I'll be sure to make a folder for Scolopendra when I have time

  • In my composition class today:
    Person 1: Is jellybean capitalized?
    Person 2: Yeah, because jelly is the name of the bean.

    Probably the best thing I've heard all day.


    AlexOfLight XD!!!!!!!! Lol!
