Also, a shout-out to Cee Wilson and Apocalypse Stacia Moon! I originally had twelve finalists, but I had to cut it down to ten. Sorry.

All finalists must post the following on my wall so I know they've seen this list: Hi, I read the finalist list and I am one of them!


  1. The only Figment contest promotion you are allowed is to share a contest entry with the group in Member Books. You are not allowed to submit your contest entry to any of the Swap Circles, ask advice for it from the Writer's Steps, or make a new discussion promotion it.
  2. Be nice! We are all here because we love writing. While honest critique is always appreciated, personal attacks on the author or extremely harsh critiques are not.
  3. You are not allowed to cheat in the Swap Circles. 
  4. Have fun =D
