Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Vay, Jan 31, 2011.

  1. Hello writers, this week you may be wondering why things are slooow. I'm sick but not too sick to give you some work to do! To if you're new, old, Asmo or Darkness, give yourself something other than trolling to do and write me a post! DO IT! NOW!
