Be the Change
If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?
|Just wanted to take a moment to thank Writing.Com for being my home for the last 5+ years, and congratulate the site on another wonderful year.
I guess I can't honestly say this is the best writing website out there because I've never visited another one. On June 20, 2004, I searched "writing exercises" and this was the first site listed in the results. After I graduated college (December 2002), I took a break from writing, and I had wanted to get back into it. The first item I posted is still here: "Shamrocks and Roses" . A short story I wrote from a prompt my sister gave me. I had a basic account until someone gifted me an Upgraded membership. Soon I was promoted to a yellow case, and I couldn't imagine my life without WDC.
I've never once felt even the smallest urge to look for another writing site. I learned more through reading and reviewing here than I ever did in college. I really freel that you'll get what you give here. If you want to improve your writing and if you want helpful feedback, you've got to learn to read and review others. I know that I learned the most from looking critically at others' writing.
And I've had fun here over the years. I've met some great people here and made some really good friends. One of the best things about this place is that it offers so much. It's not just a social site nor is it just a place for serious writers. I think everyone can find a place here.
I truly love this place!
Happy 9th, WDC!
