hey welcome!! I'm star and if you have any questions or stuff, feel free to pm me. :) . Anyways, giving reviews and submitting entries in contests is a great way to get your work out there and meet new people.

Looking forward to seeing your work,

Pffffft, yeah right...fat lot of help sour lemon juice would do. When life also throws me a bag of sugar, then we'll start talking.

Hello, Sakshi! Welcome to YWS. :smt039 I'm Searria, or "Sea" for short. :D

Why don't you tell us a little more about yourself? What's your favourite colour, book, food, animal, etc.? What genre do you write? Poetry or Prose? Do you listen to music? Do you play any musical instruments? Do you have any pets? How did you find YWS?

I'm sure you'll get the hang of YWS really quickly and be addicted in no time at all. ;) To get you started, here are a few helpful links:
1) The Official YWS Rules and Guides
2) Answers to Questions Everyone HasThis link is fabulous. It has everything you could possibly ask about YWS. (Or pretty close, anyway.)
3) The Information Desk This forum is a great place to start. Snoop around for a while, and you'll find it'll answer questions you didn't even know you had. :D
4) The Buddy System. This is a system where older members are paired with younger members and answer their questions, review their work, introduce them to other members, and so on. If you're shy or just would like a little extra help, your mentor will always be nice and helpful. :D If you post a request for a mentor, I promise you'll be flooded with lots of eager replies. :)

You can always ask any member questions. We're all willing to help. Moderators (the green people) are great people to ask, no matter what your question is. :)

Welcome again! Let me know if you need anything. Happy writing! :elephant:
'Let's eat Grandma!' or, 'Let's eat, Grandma!' Punctuation saves lives.

Reviews? You know you want one. :)

Hey, Sakshi! Mia here.

First of all, a grand welcome on YWS. I hope that you'd love coming here and learn something. It's a great place to learn and know people from different countries.

Don't hesitate in asking your questions because only after asking you'll learn. Plus, you can contact me for whatever you want.

Sierra has already told you some basic rules. Your name sounds Indian. Are you from India because I am. :D

Welcome to YWS yet again. :)
