Magestorrow wrote:I agree with @Wolfical. I mainly made an account because my friends had them, and stayed when we were actively doing things together through there. But YWS is a better site for getting original works noticed, and I usually use Archive of Our Own for fic-related ones, since my fics tend to be for very obscure fandoms that members of YWS probably don't know about. I also think the quality of the stories aren't as good as they are on YWS - or, at least, grammatically. And I think that's one major aspect of being a young writer. You're only just learning how to write, and grammar can be the difference between making a story understandable (and therefore interesting) and turning off a reader. I think the site's done more for my writing skills than any other writing sites ever had. On the other hand, I've heard that Wattpad hosted a writing con last year that one of my friends went to, and I'd be down for that.
