Well I think I'm one of the only ones who have realished a reason that shes not 10. She has X in front and behind her name. That shows she's emo. I have never heard of a 10 year old emo. But atleast it's another emo on the site.

To be really honest, the thought of a ten year old with spelling and grammar such as she. . . scares me a little. =_=

I don't think I would have HEARD of the world Critiquing when I was ten. When I was ten/eleven, I remember asking my mum every word I didn't understand in Final Fantasy 7 (Including the curses).

Zombified is right. She can't be ten.

Relax, people! I am definitely and seriously ten! I thought this would be a bit like WW or KWC, because I got the link from WW, but if it's a more grown up site than I thought, I'm not so sure about it. Am I allowed to be on this site? I didn't really see any warning about age, so I assumed not.

Firstly, what's WW/KWC?

Secondly, you stay at your own expense. Hear something you don't like, don't come crying to mommy or anybody else. People won't make allowances for your age, especially in crits, so that's the reality.

But I still don't believe you're 10. What 10 year old can use semi-colons.

I thought you may have heard of them; some of their members come here, so they kinda shared the link.
Don't worry, I won't. And I just know how to use one.

Since there's no way to really prove how old she is, I'm just going to take her word for it. There have been newbs on this site in their mid-teens who write like they're fresh out of fourth grade, so I don't see why the reverse can't be true.

Still going on about that semicolon thing, are you?

Though I have to admit, I do agree with you.

...From your writing, I assumed you were in your late-teens/early-twenties like I am.

Welcome to Young Writers! I'll try to keep my cursing in check.

Well, 10 or not, welcome to the site. Folks are just being honest with you here. It's a writing site, so if you get some very direct criticism of your work, don't take it to heart. Most of us don't mean it personally. We just want to help .

So, welcome, enjoy your stay, and feel free to let me know if you need anything.

P.S.: I don't want to hear anyone saying "Oh, now I feel old," because just think about how I feel...
