Melissa S: Not many people have been on here much :( Jul 25, 2014 17:25:20 GMT
Melissa S: I know! You are supposed to have more time... but I guess that just means more time to procrastinate lol Jun 16, 2014 18:24:18 GMT
estebanrg: the worst type of procrastination is that commited in summer... Jun 16, 2014 5:25:55 GMT
Melissa S: Wow, I wish I was more motivated to get things done. I'm in a summer break funk lol Jun 15, 2014 22:01:53 GMT
Melissa S: Haha thanks estebanrg and Amber :) sorry I haven't been on lately. Jun 3, 2014 22:23:21 GMT
Amber Skye Forbes: Welcome, bluebird! Help spread the word of writingthestars around! I've been a little inactive on this site lately, just because I've been prioritizing other things, but the more members, the more active the community! May 28, 2014 1:55:15 GMT
bluebird: Oh my. Hello everyone:) I'm use to hiding my writing but as of late I've come to realise that writing is a passion I hold dearly, so why not come out of the writing closet. I am more then happy to critique your writing. :) May 25, 2014 10:39:21 GMT
Amber Skye Forbes: Congrats! I know I'm late. I'm still in college, unfortunately, doing the final thing. I don't want to do the final thing. May 11, 2014 4:12:38 GMT
estebanrg: congrats May 10, 2014 18:22:24 GMT
Melissa S: I GRADUATED! EXCITED FACE! May 8, 2014 15:38:06 GMT
Mariah E.: Hi Jessica! :) I seem to be the resident poet. All the boards under the creative writing are locked away from the rest of the internet, so feel free to post your work there. :) I'll of course have a look for you. :) Apr 30, 2014 17:52:39 GMT
Jessica Melene: Hi everyone! I'm new here (obviously) but I was wondering if anyone is open to critiquing some of my work ? Uhm I write poetry and some of it is quite triggering for anyone who is suicidal or depressed. But yeah i'd really like some feedback on it ? :) Apr 30, 2014 17:38:58 GMT
Mariah E.: I'm here. I'm here everyday, but I've been busy with my poetry book and now a "new" WIP I'm writing. I hesitate to call it a new WIP because this is the third time I've started writing it. LOL Apr 30, 2014 14:58:44 GMT
bunni: Yes. Someone is here. :) I've been a bit dormant on the boards while sorting out a few things in my copyright, and I had to fly to LA for a while too. But back. Apr 29, 2014 5:19:58 GMT
estebanrg: is someone here? Apr 29, 2014 1:51:53 GMT
estebanrg: everyone is so busy :P Apr 27, 2014 0:07:22 GMT
Melissa S: After this next week I am hoping to be on more... this is the week before finals so everything is due and I am freaking. *inhale and exhale* hope all of you are doing well :) Apr 22, 2014 3:10:12 GMT
estebanrg: Hiii everyone Apr 21, 2014 2:46:05 GMT
Amber Skye Forbes: Oh my gosh, I have been so out of the loop. Well, at least the hectic week is over with. Now all I can do is pray that my mid-term can be re-scheduled because of misunderstandings with time zones. :/ Apr 21, 2014 1:28:16 GMT
