I was curious if anyone had checked out our Games section? You can reach it by clicking Info Center and then clicking the link at the bottom:

http://www.youngwritersonline.net/games.php

They were custom-made for this site. What do you think? Awesome, Interesting, Useful, Meh? Any ideas for other simple games like those?

Custom-made? o.O

They're all awesome. I'm going to have to being spending my free time with those, instead of chatting with friends. I'm sure my friends would understand. -cough- Okay, maybe they wouldn't.

For the spelling bee, I get the 'easy' and 'hard' words very easily, but for the 'expert' level, the only word I've gotten so far is 'monosaccharide', and I only got that because I just took notes on lipids from my science textbook today. I think I need to learn about Latin/Greek/whatever else roots first before I attempt that.

Ah, I misspoke: the spelling bee and daily stuff are not custom-made - they're free for all websites, courtesy of The Free Dictionary. I agree that expert is insanely hard. Now and then it shows a good word that can actually be used in a story without confusing a majority of readers.

But Write Down and One Word were made by me - I took several chunks of code and made them writing-oriented with a couple adjustments.

Oh yeah -- I was a bit suspicious on the spelling one. But good job on the other two! I could never write code, so --

So I could never write code.

I tried the games and they're fun! Write Down was especially amusing because I typed a story about-
Well actually I won't tell you what I wrote a story about because I highly doubt that it would make any sense at all. But ok enough rambling! All I wanted to say was the games are good and I'm sure they'll be great help to someone with a serious case of writer's block.
