Well, I'm new here, so just trying to be friendly :D
What can i say? I love reading and have found a new love for writing. I don't know if I'm any good but thought there is no harm in seeing what others think and improving.
I'm more of a story writer, but have tried poetry.
I love music. There is just no hope in me writing songs though; the lyrics come out wrong. It's just not going to happen! :wink:
I can be random at times and find all most anything hilarious.

Hello to you both!

I hope you enjoy your time on the site. YWS is really focused on improving your writing, so coming here for that purpose is rather perfect. ;) A lot of us were readers turned writers, mostly to write something we wanted to read. Is that the case with you?

Hope to see you around! If you need anything or have any questions, feel free to PM me. :)

Welcome to YWS!

That's great that you found us to work on improving your writing! This is pretty much the best place for that. :) The majority of our members found YWS for the same purposes, and we have a great community built around improvement.

What sort of stories do you like to write? I'm also more of a story writer rather than a poet (I rhyme like a third grader xD), and I wouldn't even dare attempt lyrics haha!

Welcome again! If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a PM :)

Got YWS?

heyya :) thanks everyone, I'm pretty much finding my way around the site, but I will ask if I have any questions.

I'm not really sure what type of writing I would call it, just fiction! I jut write what ever ideas I think of, maybe things I would like to to read, I don't know :)

What type of writing do you all do?

Hello, everyone! *Waves* It's great to see new faces around here; I'm glad y'all have decided to join us!

@dark Sparkle: To answer your question, the points are mostly used for posting stories. It costs 100 points to post a story, but you can also donate points to other members, or use them to send gifts to people. To get points, you just have to review stories! A review has to be 250 characters to count, and you can get up to 50 points for a review. However, if you're the first to review, you can get up to 75. The amount varies on how much you write, but don't worry too much about it; it's quality of the reviews that count, not the size. :D

@MeganKat: Yep, it's pretty easy. The folks around here are quite friendly (some are a little crazy, but we are writers after all...), so I don't think you'll have any trouble. :D

Here's a topic with some questions and answers, if you're interested: topic54894.html

And if any of you would like a review on your work, just give me a holler. :D

See you around the site!
I aim to misbehave.

Welcome to Young Writers Society Dark! A wonderful place where you will be able to post your poetry, novels, and short stories. Others will be able to review your work so that you can get better at writing and get less and less errors in your writing. I tell all the new people when you click My YWS, scroll down near the bottom and you will see the word of the week. Incorporate that into your writing to improve your vocabulary and your writing skills. Once again, Welcome to Young Writers Society!
Writing your name can lead to writing sentences. And then the next thing you'll be doing is writing paragraphs, and then books. And then you'll be in as much trouble as I am!

Welcome and Hello! I'm Lizzie. (: I'm a dork, absentminded and I trip a lot, and that's the gist of the things one should know about me. I'm not one of those people that realized I loved to write right away either, I didn't even realized I loved to read until middle school, but once I did I couldn't get enough of it. So I'm a proud reader turned writer. I'd love to review your work if you'd want some of my commentary. So Let me Know! Glad to Have You Here!

First, let me say, welcome.

This site will help you with your writing tremendously and you'll have a great time writing and reading on here. I also love to write stories more than poetry, but this site can help us strengthen our poetry. Have fun!
