Hi there Layne!

This is a message from the admins of "Writing Partners" and we are sending you this message to let you know we are in dire need of new members. We'd love it if our group would expand, so some of our new ideas could be added to our group, but we need YOUR help for us to do that. So, all we're asking of you is to invite two (2) people who you know write a lot (novels especially) or like to do NaNoWriMo and are on Figment often. That is all we ask. If this works out, we may see a spike in members, and there may be a little more activity going on around "Writing Partners".

Thanks for being in the group, "Writing Partners" and remember, keep writing! :)

your admins,

~Lexi and Shauney~

At the moment I want to focus on kick-starting my writing, so I won't have much time for swaps, but normally when I DO have spare time I review for free, all the time and straight from the library. It's how I prefer to do things, since swapping, though I do a few, seems unprofessional to me. That is to say, I've been giving feedback somewhat, but it really need some feedback as well. For sometime I've given out free reviews but now... Well, you get the picture. Would you mind helping out a fellow writer? If not, goodbye, and I apologize for wasting your time.

If yes, I assure you that most works are around five minutes, until I either expand them or create actual short stories. The works on my first page, besides "Free Writes" (off limits), are flash-fictions that need feedback. I'd appreciate it if you would choose one of those, or a poem from the second page. Choose whatever you like, or don't read at all. I really need opinions, but if my work doesn't fit your tastes, don't read!

Thank you so much! Eternally grateful!

Hey, My names Bee and like many people on this site I want to be a writer. Also like many people, I have no idea if I'm any good. If you'd like to swap that'd be really great. Let me know what you want me to read and if you could read 'I just need to know that you know' that'd be really nice. I'm just doing my best to create a fan base to get my word out to people and figure out if I really have a voice. Please be honest, negative and positive. I'd also appreciate it if you'd follow me but of course, only if you think I deserve it. Thank you!

Hi there! I am a moderator for the group, "Writing Partners" and we are in dire need for writers who are mind-set on achieving their writing goals. Are you one of them? Well, I and all the people at "Writing Partners" sure do!

The people in this group are supportive and will offer suggestions or answer questions you may have if you ever need it. We are your place to go to when you get stuck.

We really hope you join us here at "Writing Partners" and we all look forward to seeing you around! If you decide to join, make sure to look at "Group Details" for more instructions and the discussion names "Welcome to Writing Partners"!
