Young Writers Project recently had its 19th birthday -- 15th as a web community. Imagine how many words y'all have written in that time. Mind-boggling.

Wow! Happy 19th ywp :) just thinking of all the past ywp'ers that have written and shared their creativity on here is so empowering

It is mind boggling actually. Thousands upon thousands of kids. Speaking. Finding voice. Rattling cages. Moving us to tears. Or laughter. Music. Art. Sound. Also.
As you know I founded YWP and, as you may not know, I stepped away to devote energy to my own writing project -- a novel, which I will be publishing as a serial, online, with audio (and other digital attractions.)
But from time to time I jump in to see how y'all are doing and I so appreciate your effort Treblemaker -- your writing is wonderful, evocative, fresh. AND you comment. A lot. And that builds community. Thank you. Be well.

Indeed it is and no, thank you! because you managed to create the most amazing, community oriented, inspiring writing platform on the internet! (at least to me). Also its great to see you hop on here and leave inspiring comments on our stuff, it makes my day.
Best of luck with your novel and I'd love to read it sometime. All the best!
