Please read/heart my short story, "PERCEPTION OF DECEPTION"...I only have a couple days left to make the quota for this contest & I'm really trying hard to make it!

If you would like me to read something in return, let me know and I'll get to it ASAP. Please disregard this if you have already hearted-it's hard to keep track of everyone!

Thanks so much! ~M

Hi there! Would you mind checking out my story, “Never Break Me”? I’ll read anything of yours, just tell me what. Thanks so much!

Hey fellow Figgy, Wanna swap? I’ve recently written a short story for the Seventeen Magazine Fiction Contest called Nothing Left But You. It is a heart based contest, my story is roughly around 2min long and is about a woman named Raven who thinks she has nothing left to live for…but does she? It would be so great if you could read it and tell me what you think! I’m not asking for you to heart it but to simply read it and if yes, you do enjoy it than please heart it and tell me in the comments what you thought of it! I’ll read anything of roughly equal length! Please write on my wall what you want me to read! Thanks, Han. P.S. If I’ve already asked you or you already read it than I’m sorry for being a bother and I ask that you please ignore this.

Hi, I am here to see if you would be willing to read my story It's Not Okay. I am trying to reach a goal of 1,000 hearts, but only heart it if you like it. If you do not do free reads then I would love to do a swap. Thanks!

This was a good poem. The rhythm is fairly consistant, other than the last line of the first stanza. The message was well conveyed, and y... Read More »
