Hey everyone! It has been a long time since I came here. I thought I should give this another try. I'm hoping not to get dissapointed again.
Well, I'll see you around and I'll start posting again. Fresh start. Let just pretend the previous works never existed... ! :D

Hi everyone!

I've tried to come back before and wasn't too successful but my first year of college is almost over so I think I'll be able to devote some more time to YWS again :) So yeah, I'm back!

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

I want to read your work!

Ask me anything. Talk to me about anything. Seriously. My PM box is always open <3

Don't hold your breath anyone, but I'm back for at least a little while. Perhaps I'll stay if I have the time. I haven't done any writing for about 10 months because I pushed myself too hard and got sick of it. Now I'm starting to get together some ideas for a fresh project, but this time I'm going at my own pace, and certainly not with dollar signs in my eyes.

I'd like to say that the time I was away was some sort of journey of self discovery, but really all I did was mess around, dabbling in some other art forms, and playing video games. But I did read plenty of books, so I suppose I might have a few more tricks up my sleeve when it comes to writing. We'll see.

I wonder how many of my old friends are still around here?

Hey Carlito! I 'member you! *nods*
Hola Hippie, don't think we've met. *extends hand*

Turns out Junior Year is just as bad as everyone said it would be. I haven't written anything since September. But here I am. I'm back and I'm glad! Hopefully when Summer rolls around I'll be able to really return. Helloo everyonee.

I am also back. Again.
'Tis entirely possible few (or none) of you will remember me because:
a) I've been gone since September-ish and
b) I wasn't that huge to begin with.
But that is inconsequential now. What really matters is that I am here now and will be until the end of summer at least. maybe longer. Depending on how busy my life is and when I am struck with a nearly permanent crippling case of writer's block.
But the nit and gist is this: I am pretty much in the same boat as LittlePrincess...
My sister: I'll never forget that day... It was raining wasn't it?

Need a review? PM me and I will take care of it. :]

I'm here too. :D
Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said, "Goodbye!" and you were like "NO WAY." and then I was all, "We pretended we were going to murder you."
That was great.

Hello writers, readers and reviewers!
I haven't been at YWS for... 2 years! But I'm glad that not much has changed - it's still a very friendly creative community I'm proud to be a part of! ;-)

Will be glad to review your stories, just poke me!
And I'd be very grateful to receive any feedback on the story ( I just submitted for the BIG contest!

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

And Immortality.
