There comes a point when others’ opinions do not solely govern what you write but you are still humble enough to take constructive advice. Work hard and write what you love!” – Eastlyn Ullmann Continue reading

“I enjoy that everyone here is so supportive. Everyone is here to support you and actually help you to become an author… which, of course, is a dream of mine! Also, unlike other sites, it is much easier to get constructive criticism here. Those are probably the two most important things a writer can have (besides an ice-cream break now and then, but you get the picture).” – Stormie D. Continue reading

“The more you read, the more you open yourself up to the endless possibilities. If you’re unsure of what you’re writing, ask help from a trusted friend. If you don’t want your friends to know about it, share it on this wonderful site and ask for a swap. Just never stop writing, We all have that story we aren’t sure of. But don’t let that stop you. Happy writing! :)” – Unmasked Dreams Continue reading

“I find inspiration in situations that cause a lot of emotional turmoil. I like to try to capture the specific emotion or the struggle of multiple emotions with words. I am also a part of a small community of writers; we all motivate each other when we are having trouble or get writer’s block.” – Kaylee Herndon Continue reading
