    Oh of course! I really did enjoy it ^_^ And I completely understand your nervousness. Writing is a very intimate form of art; it's like giving a speech or singing a solo. Sharing it with others can sometimes be the most terrifying thing ever, but the more you do it the more comfortable it eventually becomes. This community is very kind and helpful when it comes to advice. They've definitely helped me out, and I've no doubt you'll gain a lot of knowledge on how to better your writing and to learn your own style.
    Aaaaaand I've written an essay. Sorry about that >_<" I guess just remember it's okay to be nervous, cuz honestly, we're all nervous too ;P

    thanks! I've kind of been jumping from website to website looking for a place i would be comfortable putting my stuff. the community is great and the terms of service agreement doesn't claim ownership to my writing, so i guess i might try to amass a following here. i really like your poetry to by the way. one question should i stick all my poems into one Movella/Story/whatever you call it or should i make separate one for each poem/short story i right? (heres an essay right back at ya 8')

    Ah, I see. Well, I'm glad you finally found a website you like ^_^ This community is perhaps a bit on the quainter side (don't quote me on that tho; I'm not 100% positive), but it is a very well-laid-out website for the most part.
    Also thank you very much! That really means a lot ^o^
    As for the poetry question: it's entirely up to your own discretion. Some people prefer to have just one movella (that's what it's called I think :3) for all their poetry, especially if they want to clearly separate their poems from their stories. But for people who primarily just write poetry, or if someone writes longer or more elaborate poems, they might prefer to separate each poem into its own unit. And there's also a feature that was just recently added: when you create a new movella, you are able to make it part of a series that includes similar movellas, so that a reader can just hop from one story/poem/novella to another easily. (That feature is under "Story info," and at the bottom of the page is the icon "Create a Movella Series.") So that makes the latter option a bit more convenient and organized. But again, it's just up to what you want to do. Both of them work well, but it depends upon what you think looks best.
