Finally, I have found a place where I can safely post my writings up for critique. Having your reluctant friends crit your work just doesn't cut it, you get all sorts of fake opinions which aren't helpful in any way. Anyways, thanks Mercy for referring me to this site (:

My name is Sophia (:

Haha, thank you (:

Your signature intrigues me, your own writing?

Hell no, I can't write lyrics that well. XD

And an extra 10 points for the Plato quote. Though I prefer Aristotle's writings to his. :3

Well, Saint's clearly taken a shine to you, Z. It doesn't happen often. Savour the moment.
Welcome to YWO! What kind of things do you write and read?

Much grinnage!

Iridescence:: Thank you, I don't think I've received nice comments on my introduction pages before (:

I read mostly Classical Literature and historical fiction. I also enjoy folklore (:
My writings are generally just expressions of feelings I'm having at the moment, so I don't think they have much of a genre or category. I'm no good at writing stories, I generally stick to poetry or short writings. Not that I'm really any good at either, but I do try (:

Saint Jacky:: If not yours, than who's?

Ahh, the more head-centered of the two (; If we are going off preference here, I generally take more of a liking to Socrates than Plato or Aristotle. The quotes just an old favorite of mine, used to be up on my wall for about three years before I moved.

Majyk:: Thank you kindly (:

miss_smiley:: Haha, Perhaps he/she's just in a good mood? Nonetheless, I shall savor the moment, anyone taking a liking to me is worth savoring ;D

As stated above, I read more into the classical genre and write mostly short poems and emotional let-outs (:

Mercy:: Thank you Mercy, I have gone through the rules (:

listophergreene:: Haha, I'm sure I will, anything to do with writing generally means a good time (;
