I would just like to introduce myself. I am thewritersdream, I really enjoy writing through feeling and feeling through writing. I hope to have some wonderful conversations and improve on my writing skills, while sharing my own writing to the world. It is so good to be part of something like this. As a welcome gift to the site: here is a website that gives good tips on getting to know your characters ( Nice to be here :D. I would like you all to know that I believe poetry is a way to speak and books (novels) are ways to sing.
I believe in that, which is not seen.
I call it truth, faith, hope, life.

I used to be known as thewritersdream, but now my dreams have taken flight

Hi there, I'm C

Welcome to YWS. :D *Gives a jar of cookies*

First of all, I really love the topic you wrote for this. It's really unique and I did feel like I was going to read a story rather than an introduction.

I should tell you that, you'll be glad to have joined YWS as it's one of the best sites to improve your writing, plus you'll be among the friendliest people you'll find on the web. You'll really enjoy staying here and we are really glad to welcome you into this happy family of writers.

So, in YWS, there are several ways you can improve your writing, while helping others improve their's. We have a reviewing system here and when someone posts their work, a number of people review it, pointing out the flaws in the story, errors, places that need improve and they give a general overview of it. So, that's one way of improve yourself here.

Another is by reading the writing tips posted here. The tips posted there can immensely help you improve your writing, and by posting a tip, you can get point.

Oh! I almost forgot about points. So, when someone reviews something, or posts a writing tip, they get a certain amount of points. It's depends on the characters of the review. But a full review would get 50 points. If it was the first review of the work, then the reviewer would get 50 + 50% more points. If it's the second review, it would be 50 + 25% points. Don't worry about it too much. You'll get the hang of it.

Now, you said you wanted to have conversations with the other members. Well, for that, you can either visit the chatroom or you can visit the lounge to engage in some discussions with the other members.

Now, if you have any questions you can PM me, and I'll do my best to answer them. Also, you can PM the moderators (The green people) ;) and ask them any questions you have.

By the way, thanks for the site you mentioned. It seems extremely useful.

So, I hope you have fun here at YWS. :D

Good luck!

Hello there, Writersdream! Since you were in chat recently, I'd just like to reassure you that it isn't always like that!

As C said, we're about the friendliest people on the web.
