Hello, people of this website that actually read this. I have been writing for nearly seven years now, and have improved a lot since my first work. I know my work needs revising, (more like a team of professional editors) and there is no possible chance of me getting published for several years, but please read my writing, as I have worked very hard on it.

Yours Truly,

Hello, Robin. :mrgreen:

First off, I'd just like to say welcome to the site! We're glad to have you and I'm sure you'll find yourself just as glad to be part of the YWS community soon enough!

I find it downright awesome when younger writers such as yourself join the site. There's really so much growing up to be done as a young writer! We're always busy morphing in and out of our own thoughts and passions. Here at YWS I think you'll find you'll be doing a lot of growing as a writer. Since joining the site myself I've found myself so influenced by the atmosphere of the forums and the many helpful writers about me. There's really a lot of fun to be had, what with storybooking, joining contests, and simply receiving reviews and reviewing others work, as well as so much more. I encourage you to take advantage of all that YWS has to offer!

If you ever find you have any questions at all, you can feel free to ask me by either posting a comment on my wall or shooting a PM(private message) my way. I'd be glad to help you out with whatever. Though I'm confident you'll do just fine on your own. Just remember: good grammar, plagiarizing is evil, and always brush twice daily. ;]

Look forward to seeing you around the site, Robin!

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

Welcome to Young Writers Society Mantisrox! 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!

Why hello mantisrox!! Welcome to Young Writers Society! My name is Sara, and if you'd ever like anything to be reviewed or have any questions feel free to ask :)

I can say that YWS is the definitely the best website and writing community you could ever turn to. I have been a part of numerous writing sites in the past, but I have stayed committed to YWS the longest simply because it can't be beat!

Here's a little tip: If you want reviews, a good way to do it is by giving reviews. People like to give back once they receive!

Have fun!

<3 Sara.

Well, if you guys would like to, I have a story already up here. It's a little long, I know, but all my other work is still being processed and revised by me, so that's all I have. About those questions:
1. I like writing suspense/horror and action novellas and short stories. I can't do romantic stuff, so bear with me during romantic scenes of my stories.
2. Hobbies... well, I like to write, paint, read, draw, do gorey make-up art, and make videos. I am the make-up artist andd writer in my film trio.
3.Food? I don't where that came from... but I do like mexican food :3
4. Improving. Well, I'm not very good at romantic things, and that takes away a lot of options for excuses in murder and psychosis. I am also bad at inventing characters, so I usually have at least one character based off of myself, in order to have at least one character's complete mindset known to me.

I really appreciate all the support and am excited to see all of your work and see what you think of mine!
