    Hello Writers!

    I'm super new here (which is obvious, of course haha), and I'm so thrilled I found this place! I'm an aspiring writer with a crazy budding idea. The outline is finished, just gotta tackle it. But it's YA sci-fi/fantasy through and through, but I'm roughly 1000 words into 75000. Yikes. So basically the YA section of this site rocks my world.

    Hope to make new friends and get better at my craft! (Which is years down the road lol)

    Sincerely,

    Ashwood

    Welcome to AW! Its nice to see another North-westerner on the site. Good luck with your WIP!

    Well, you've come to the right place! The Watercooler is a super way to procrastinate (and to learn writing craft and publishing). Best of luck to you.
