Writing.Com has helped me emancipate from Microsoft Word into the world out there. I always had great ideas that I wanted to type down, but I never felt like doing so, since I'd never feel the courage or disposition to show it to anyone else. This site has allowed me to feel freer and to exercise writing in a language that is not my own from birth. I can't thank the webmasters enough for the site's existance. Thank you!
I have just gotten started on writing.com and I absolutely love it. It has exposed me to thoughts and ideas that I never would have thought of. The reviews I have received have been both encouraging and challenging. Writing.com has greatly enhanced my ability to write.
Writing.com has provided a special online home where I can dispense my creativity. The feedback I receive from readers and other writers has been instrumental in my quest for publication. Reviewing other people's work also helps me to see, in my own writing, where I am making mistakes. I just received my writing.com ball cap and gift and I love them!
Several months ago, I searched the internet for writing groups so I could get feedback on some of my stories. Though I wanted the feedback, I was a little nervous to have them critiqued and I knew it would be hard to get out of my comfort zone. I stumbled across this website and have had such a great experience since! I love the encouragement I have received from those who reviewed my stories and especially those who gave me tips and pointers on what I can do to make them better! It made me want to do the same for others. I like the exchange of reviews that happen here. I can honestly say that I have learned so much here and have increased my writing skills.
I've been a member of WDC since Jan of this year and was impressed from the very beginning at how everyone here is willing to lend a hand and more than happy to help with whatever you need from basic questions to multiple posts asking for thoughts on a story or poem. I have yet to encounter harsh comments about anything I've posted.
A little over a year ago I stumbled upon WDC on Google. I decided to join because I needed a site where I could write and store and share my stories. As a Newbie I was a bit nervous at first, but soon I was writing and reviewing and gaining confidence. soon I was publishing article in a local newspaper and actually getting paid! I'm so happy I found this wonderful site;it is an encouraging, caring community of writers and I'm delighted to be part of it!

I found this writing site 'writing .com' while I was browsing the internet. I find the site very challenging, but interesting, and there is lots to do with competitions to test your inspirations. Thanks for sharing this site with me.
I have been with WDC since April of 2014 and my experience here has been amazing. I have been writing for my whole life and it was not until I was referred to this site from a friend that I have been able to grow as a writer. This is the first place where I received feedback from my writing. This is the place where I won my first writing contest. This is also the place where many long lasting friendships have begun. This site is more than just the writing. There are activities to participate in such as the interactive stories, crosswords, surveys, blogs, reviews, helping others, and much more. I feel like I have come home on this website. I would like to thank everyone who participates in keeping this website going and for having all the activities that we have here on WDC.
I have been on WDC for a little over a month now and I have no intention of getting off anytime soon. I love how kind and polite the members of this community are! It is nice to submit your work and actually get some useful feedback to reward your hard work. And, on top of getting feedback, the review reward system is super cool! I get rewarded for helping fellow writers perfect what they love and I have to say…I like that feeling. It seems like a solid community of people who have one HUGE thing in common no matter how different they are…we all love to write.
I joined Writing.com about one week ago. I proudly accept my status of "NEWBIE". I have jumped into the deep waters by creating portfolio writings totaling four items; I have completed seven writing reviews, entered a writing contest, and signed-up to join one of the many available writing clubs. In this short period of time, I have established friendships with some authors and already see some subtle improvements with my writing. I fully expect to write a book someday. My eventual success in that venture will surely be due in part to the feedback that I'm receiving on Writing.com. Bright Writer
Hello to all. I have only been a member of WDC sense 1/28/15, but what a blast. I have been encouraged every step by everyone here. I have joined blogs, gotten helpful reviews on my work and feel as if I have become a community member. That is what it is like here, a community, WDC is a gem for writers of any level. -Taz Koby, Embracing & Feeding the writing addiction
Writing.com gets better every year! The bells and whistles just keep improving! The people you meet are amazing people and lasting friendships develop! If you are not a member of Writing.com you are missing out!
Writing.com was one of the best things for me. I've made lots of new friends and I've become a better writer. I love you all!!! :DDD
I have only been on here for two months, but Writing.com has some of the best members I have found, as compared to other writing sites. They are helpful, they critique honestly, and they are writers, also, just like you. I have finished a short story on here, and have started a second, and some of the technical stuff in my story, if I didn't receive the help I did, I would still be on the first story. There are also games and contests you can enter. Writing.com is the best!
Write On! It has been 6 years or better as I have come back a few times, It is the perfect place to write, practice writing and reviewing! I had to realize there is not a happier place on earth than doing what you love!!!
Thanks again and Write On!
I have been a member of writing.com for a little over six months. My sister told me about it, and I knew I had to join. I thought I would love it because it was a good place to put things I wrote. But it's so much more than that. WDC is a place for people to go and write, yes. But it's also a place to get people's honest opinions about things you've written. There are contests and activities to participate in. But the best part for me has been meeting so many people that are kind and encouraging about me and my writing. I've received several honest, helpful, and positive reviews since I've joined WDC. I have made many friends who have inspired me to write. So I'd like to say thank you to writing.com for a great six months, and many more to come.
I am Jasmine. To be a writer- is, was and will be my breath. I don’t remember dreaming of becoming any other. But I have always had this fear of dying a dreamer. That was until I found writing.com. There are lots of other sites too but none authentic. Writing.com is ‘the place where writers go’ each word is as true as gold. Writers are respected and encouraged here. Fellow writers at the community provide honest reviewing and inputs for improvement too. There is no money involved which eases the burden off me as I am not the earning member of the family. Thus I need not provide any explanation to follow my heart. Writing.com focuses on the writers and helps them evolve as authors. Thank you so much writing.com

I have been writing a long time, and this is the first place that I have found that has been well organized for writers. I have never seen such great people, strong energy geared to help writers instead of break them down, the encouragement of kind words and recognition for their work. I am glad I returned to this site. It has been one in a million, and there is nothing else like this site that is any better. (And in my travels I have been on a few but nothing measures up). My thanks to Writing.com for the chance to write.
Hi my name is Kye and I've been writing since I was 10 as a hobby. Now that I found this site I've been inspired to start reading and rewriting my own work. Hopefully you all will enjoy my work just as much as my two good friends, Onnie and Sean aka the rat, whom i convinced to join writing.com.
This is my third incarnation on WdC. I was Mr. Crusty, Blimprider, and now Compass Rosie. My first mission was to gain confidence; done. My second was to help others with theirs; in progress. Now I am publishing a series, and there is no place I have ever found that provides more, more useful, or more accurate advice and suggestions than writing.com. I can honestly say that I would not be a published author today without this family of writers. "Thank you" seems like such an easy, throwaway thing to say, but I'll start with that. As for rest, I'll try to pay it forward. Thanks for everything. I'm having a ball!
I am more than addicted to this site, and could ramble for hours about all the reasons. The people here are the biggest attraction. You'll never find a better bunch of people. Here, it doesn't matter where you're from, what you look like, how old you are, or what disabilities you might have, because on WDC it only matters what sort of person you are inside - your character and personality. It doesn't even matter where you are on your writing journey. We don't become friends with great authors - we become friends with great people.

I want to thank all persons at Writing.Com who reviewed my Bible stories. My book, "Bible Stories Told My Way," will be released by Tate Publishing in August 2014. Writing.com members made a huge difference in that accomplishment. I am working on another project which is being considered by a different publisher, which deals with controversial Biblical subjects. Writing.Com via its members has made the difference in how quickly I have learned to master this art of ours, and encourages me to continue enhancing it. Again Thank you Writing.Com authors.
I joined WDC in March 2013. I was very quiet, lacked confidence and did not mix with people well. I still am quiet and still find it difficult to communicate with people. However, since joining this site, my confidence has grown a tremendous amount. I have had work published , I have done a whole term in an English course and won an award for student of the year. All of this in little over a year. I believe this has been made possible through joining WDC and I hope it will continue for many more years. I thank everyone who reviewed my early works, if not for your encouragement and praise I may not have carried on with my writing. I hope everyone who reads this has as much success as I have. Sanita

I love Writing dot com! I found the website in July and signed up . Looking through story Titles and reading and reviewing them each day has been very helpful for me as a writer. I just this morning received and Upgraded Membership. For this I am truly grateful. I don't know who to thank for the gift was anonymous. But Thank You so much! I'm thinking now of friends who like to write so I can share this site link with them too! A grateful heart here with smiles :).

Out of all the sites I have tried, this one is the most supportive and helpful by far. I have learned so much and written pieces I would never have dreamed of. It's not a mere writing website - it's a family of writers.
