      "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 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 Bright Writer "

      "I have only been on here for two months, but 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. is the best!"

      "I have been a member of 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 for a great six months, and many more to come."

      "Hi, 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 There are lots of other sites too but none authentic. 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. focuses on the writers and helps them evolve as authors. Thank you so much "

      "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 for the chance to write. "

      "This is my third incarnation on WdC. I was {b}Mr. Crusty, Blimprider,{/b} and now {b}Compass Rosie.{/b} 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 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. 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"

      "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."

      "I came here to improve my writing skills. I have been given many honest reviews. I have found many of my poems have gotten a lot better from listening to members advice. I still write a dud or 2 but with the advice and encouragement of members here many of my mediocre poems have become ones I am proud of. Thank you WDC for your support and honesty. "

      "I have just celebrated my second anniversary with Before coming here, I had completed only one story and was shy about anyone reading it.I was lucky to stumble on this site and discover that a lot of people are apprehensive about putting up that first piece. The genuine acceptance and encouragement I have received from the members has made my portfolio blossom. I now have more confidence in what I produce and eventually hope to publish. Thank you, "

      " I witnessed a murder. The police didn't investigate it. I gave them a written account of what happened and I was told I was illiterate. I didn't have $14,000 to pay a ghostwriter to write a book for me. In my search of trying to find someone to do it for me I ran across this website. Now with the guidance of published authors I have paid pennies to, I've written a book that is near completion. I pay people with GPs to view my story and make comments. I have tried finding local real people to read my book and make comments. The problem with is you get a more truthful answer by anonymous people who know how to write than a beta reader you have met in person. This website give me a place to post my writing that gives me a shield of protection. I can see the ratings of the authors who view my work and can see whose advice to follow. Here I am getting the services a publishing house would give me. There are many people in this world who give bad advice for the fun of watching people destroy themselves. There is no way I as a learning writer would just take anyone off the internets advice. It would be the same as going onto youtube and looking up how to make flying shoes. There are many people with videos who give step by step instructions on how to make flying shoes, but you can't get off the ground with bad advice. I get great advice here that's why I'm here to stay. "

      "I've been a WDC member for nearly 6 years, and I find it to be a wonderfully creative place. I am amazed at the huge variety of opportunities to be inspired to write: prompts, contests, review requests from fellow authors, and many more. I have always found the peer-peer reviews to be helpful and respectful, especially when pointing out something that didn't make sense, or to offer a suggestion for future efforts. If you like to write, this is the place to be!"

      " has the best community of any site I've ever seen. The support and helpfulness of its members transcends anything I've witnessed before. When I joined the site a couple months ago, I wanted to get insight on my writing and read other writers' work. Since then, I've come to find that this site is so much more than just another writing site. There may be other places you can get reviews on your work, but you will not have the dedication and attention to detail that you get on this site. I don't have to be here for years to see that WDC is what you make of it. It can either be a place where you go to read and maybe get some reviews on your work or it can be a place where you feel at home. You wouldn't think it would be possible to make so many friends in two months on a site, but I've already met so many great people that I consider actual friends here. You can be as social or reclusive as you want, but you'll always get respectful and encouraging treatment from the members. Plus, the site owners actually play a daily role on the site. They're constantly coming out with improvements. I can't think of another site of the same caliber where you can have interactions with the owners like it's nothing. Really down-to-earth people here. I have so much appreciation for this site."
