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,
>Jen ///.0

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

Have a nice day/night!

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.

Welcome to the site indeed! Make sure to read all the lovely rules and what nots and feel free to ask any questions you might have.

On a different note, make sure to check out our magazine. It's called Survival By Storytelling and the first issue just went on sale in November. Buy a copy to support other YWO members and young writers like yourself (we only publish writers 25 and under)! Links are in my sig .

Have a good one!
