Hello to all young writers out there!
I'm Megha, and I've just joined YWO. I'm hoping to improve my writing in the time I'm here, and I'm not sure how long that'll be. Anyway, I'm from London, I'm 10 years and 9 months old, so don't expect Shakespeare from me.
I like critiquing, and I seem to do it more than actually writing.
I like to write short stories and poems, because I usually give up on novels. You may have guessed; I want to be an author when I grow up.
So, I'm hoping to get lots of crit on my work, and am more than welcome for it.
See you around!
XxX

Wow.

I hate to be the mean guy but...

Site policy says you've got to be at the minimum, 12 years old to participate in activities here.

I dunno if that policy has changed but...geez.

You're ten.

You sure you want to be on a writing forum?

Wow, you surely are young...

Hello, little one, welcome to YWO.

It seems that you are so excited, and that's good.

It's good that you like to crit, because that's what you have to do to gain points so that you'd be able to post your work.

Anyway, make sure that you check out the FAQ & Rules as well as the Critique Guidelines

Also, feel free to PM/VM any member here for extra info/help or if you need a critique later on. [Including me]

Have fun and hope tha you enjoy your stay here.

You really don't sound like a ten year old.

I know ten year olds... and well, meh. You can spell "critiquing". I can't even do that on bad days.

Em, be prepared for "harshness" crit wise. And if you come onto chat, be prepared for swearing and you-know-what shmutty...

Have fun though!

EDIT: I like the Kingdom of the whatever series. I read them. They were good. Imaginatively good youn'un fantasy.

EDIT: I'm not human. Memories of Being Human, though.

Chat... is definitely sometimes not appropriate for ten-year-olds. But we will try and be good.

And yes, be prepared for harshness. Most of us try to be nice while critiquing, but I think we can still come off as pretty mean. I know I do sometimes...

Oh, wow. Wish I could express myself that well when I was ten. I was a nutjob when I was ten. xD I've been trying to write a novel since before I was ten, so don't give up on them if you have ideas! That's why we're here -- to help. Send me a P/VM for crits on anything but poetry.

....Okay, I'm not going to flip............................I lied. TEN YEARS OLD?! WHAT?! *insert grownup words here* Okay, wow...

So, that puts you in about fourth or fifth grade, right?

Her grammar is impeccable for a ten year old.

You guys smell that?
It's...strong.
It's in the air.
Smell it yet?

It's bullshit.

You ain't ten.
You're at LEAST 13.
