My name is Joseph and I am only 15 and have been writing sense I was in third grade. I have writen almost three novels, now my first one was called Wormhole War and I found out that now of days publishers are looking for something different and that was about people with powers so that's not new. That's when I started my book I am working on now called Sleep Walk, the publishers love it and said it can be a great book but first I have to finish it. I play football and tennis but writing is my main hobby.

Hi Joseph!

I'm Mac, nice to meet you!

Seems like you've been busy reviewing lately, 14 reviews already! :D There's so much more you can do here, join clubs, chat, participate in storybooks (the link is on the black bar) and participate in reviewing frenzies at the end of the month (review days) - double points for reviewing and competition from other teams ;)

Tennis? Now THAT'S awesome. I'm learning tennis so I'm still pretty bad but it's great fun! When did you start playing tennis? And writing?

What novels do you like to read? Favourite genres or authors? I love thrillers, mystery and action. I read everything though, personally.

That's it, really! :D If you've got any questions, as Mikko said (Hi Mikko! XD), you can go to the Q&A forum or contact someone in green (a moderator). They're super friendly and do a great job of keeping the site running well. You can also contact me :) I'll gladly review you too!

I hope you enjoy your time here :)


P.S. Naturally you'll get addicted to YWS sooner or later XD

Hello JosephBohnenberger,

Welcome to YWS, it's lovely to meet you! Mikko's included some excellent links to get you started and if you have any other questions just ask anyone and we'll all be delighted to answer your questions! There is so much to do around here and pretty soon the Young Writers Society bug will bite you hard and you'll become addicted to our awesome site!

I have writen almost three novels
Wow, that's awesome you must be really committed if you have already managed to finish 3 novels! I can never usually push myself to keep writing something for so long so I tend to have lots of writing projects at once. But the fact that you've already finished a novel is awesome! I hope you get published in the future and I'd love to read your novels!

Anyway i hope you have an excellent time here and by sharing your writing and hearing other peoples opinions i can guarantee your writing will get better and better. I look forward to seeing you around.
