Good to know you're willing to dive right into writing and posting! For essay topics, you might want to start a thread in The Lounge to get suggestions. A thread there is visible for longer than in Welcome. :)

Also, in order to receive reviews, it's best to give them! ^_^ You give reviews by going to the Read/Write tab, picking a forum you'd think is interesting, finding a thread that looks interesting and reading the story in the first post. Once you've read it, just hit "post reply" at the side or bottom of the thread to give your feedback! It's as simple as saying what you liked/didn't, and why you liked or didn't like something. :)

As for where to post your essays, I'd suggest General Articles. But, remember, review lots to make up for all the posting you're doing. ;)

Hope to see you around the site! :D PM me if you need anything.

Hi Drizzles! I'm Drama <3
Like Rozeh said, if you need essay topics, it's best to post in the lounge!

You're seeing YWS as a half redone site, and some of the things that we had before aren't back yet! Our wonderful site-creator and head man, Nate has been re doing the site for us! So you're lucky! You get to get used to YWS in this form, and take the new things after getting used to it!

Anyway, your challenge is so cool! I respect you for your goal. I would never be able to do that! I struggle writing WEEKLY essays for school... XD. It's great to see you're so open to reviews and critiques too! :)

But remember, since you're going to be posting so often, to do lot's of reviews. Before the site got re done, we had a point system, and Nate's probably going to put it back in. Back then, we had to have 100 points to post something, and it took either two reviews or greets to get 100 points!

So, review review review!

/says the girl who didn't review for a month/
Don't follow my example, XD.

Anyway, enough of my silly ramblings! Good luck on your challenge, and if you need ANY help, just shoot me a PM, or-- post on my wall.

Hope to get to know you better!
