So, the title basically says it all. I've been looking for a site like this for a while, but for some reason never thought to google it...My slowness is a different story entirely, though. I hope to have a great time reading other people's work and posting my own. Mostly, I write fiction and, occasionally, romance. Anyway, I hope to finish some of my stories (I've started way too many...), and get to know other writers.

Over and Out,

Welcome to the site! What genre of fiction do you write (besides romance)?

Have a nice day/night!

Hey Newbie!
Welcome to the YWO! Glad to have you with us
If I had endless resources, and a lot of time to spare...
I would buy all the copies of a detective novel, and rip out the last page in every one...

Since Iri stole my question, I'll have to keep this simple. Welcome to YWO!

Hey, welcome to the site.

Be sure to read the rules and critique guidlines and try not to spam, and you should get along fine here.

Although I primarily critique fantasy and Sci-fi, be sure to PM if you would like a run through on some of your work.
