Hi, Wonka. :mrgreen:

No one has come to greet you yet? Allow me to do the honors. Welcome to the site! I hope you find your stay here at YWS a welcoming and fulfilling one. There's truly so much growing to be done as a writer when joining this site. I'm sure you'll benefit greatly as a writer in being here.

For the most part, the site operates pretty easily and self explanatory. Once you have a decent wander around that is. Though, if you happen to have any questions or are wondering how certain things work, you can feel to reach out to me with your questions. I'll happily answer them. Just post a comment on my wall or shoot a PM(private message) my way and I'll be sure to get back to you. This link here is also pretty handy for newcomers. Take a gander at it if you like. Or just feel free to go back to it for reference when a lost thought occurs.

Anyway, I hope you're liking the site so far. There's really a lot to love. Ask anyone around. xD Like I said before, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! Or if you're simply looking for a review on any new works you post. I'm pretty faithful upon following through with review requests. But yes, welcome again!

Paul is my little, evil, yellow bundle of joy.

Hi there Wonka, I'm C.

Welcome to YWS :D *Hands a cookie*

If you had a look around the site, you would have noticed that this is a uniquely created site with a community of friendly helpful writers. We help each and everyone in improving their writing skills by reviewing their working, by submitting writing tips and generally answering any questions that people might have. It's a very enjoyable site, so fair warning, you'll find your self hooked to it in no time.

Here in YWS, we have a buddy system. It's a system where an older (been here a while) user takes a new user under his/her wing and becomes a mentor to that user for a month. A mentor's responsibility is to answer any questions the mentee has, review his/her work and basically be a guide around the site (It's quite a huge site, so new people would definitely need some help in finding their way around) I can be your mentor if you want. Just PM me and I'll be at your side (figuratively :D) in a second.

Now, I'm not going to talk about each and everything on this site, but I have to point out the storybooks section. Here's where you make a character for a specific storybook that you've joined and plays a part in a storybook RPG where the plot is decided and twisted on the fly. It's pretty fun, so be sure to check it out.

Well, if you have any questions or want something to be reviewed, just drop me a PM and I'll do my utter best to answer/review them.

I hope you have fun on your stay at YWS.

Good luck :D
