What's better than a romance between a girl and a werewolf? (Well, ice cream. I like ice cream more than romance... anywho.) The Outsider would very much appreciate any and all help she can get on her story "The Orphan and the Wolf" so let's all pick up our correction pens (or... computer keys...) and give a hand the best way we know how: Constructive criticism and a healthy dose of compliments.

Hop to it!

(P.S. This is not a swap request. If you would like to swap, then ask The Outsider. Please do not post on my wall asking for a swap.)

Hey! My friend Ali Hart posted a new story, and she would love some feedback. She hasn't been very active on Figment lately, and she'd really love if you could read/heart her story. It's called A Casual Explosion, and here's the link: If you want to swap, please reply on my wall, as she doesn't always check hers. :) Thanks, and I'm really sorry if she or I have already asked you or if you don’t like swaps!

Hi, I am entered into a heart based contest so it would mean the world to me if you would read my story It's Not Okay and heart it if you like it. If you don't do free reads then I am open to swapping. If you have already received this or don't do swaps I sincerely apologize for bothering you.

This a nice style to open a story, a vague, almost in-medias-res intro. However I'd continue saying “he” the entire time and never “the m... Read More »
