Good morning everyone! I found this site many years ago but have stumbled back upon it recently. I don't recall very much of how it operates, I don't think I spent very much time here in the beginning. My name is Cori and I am 28, old- I know. I'm currently about halfway through the second book of my YA series and am just trying to find a place of like minded people to keep myself on track. With children, work and classes I tend to be pretty busy and so joining local writing groups is out of the question. I hope to get to know some people with similar interests and ideals to develop a supportive and encouraging circle of familiars. Take care!

Welcome, Cori!

You've certainly found your non-writing-group-writing-group! Everyone here has the penultimate goal of helping others improve - with the ultimate being to improve themselves. Or maybe they're tied! Regardless, you'll definitely find bushels of insight here from reviews in the publishing center to our centuries-versed resources section. I'm sure you'll love it.

Let me know if you have any issues! My inbox is always open. :)

Hi Cori! Welcome to YWS!

You're not the only older member on this site! I happen to be one myself. Enjoy your stay! I hope we can help you keep on track with that novel. See you around!

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
