About Me: *deleted all the personal crap I put on here when I was 16* ___________________________________________________________ I'm 19, a lit and creative writing student, an avid reader, devoted writer, over-protective pet owner, literal OCD-ist, and occasional human being. _______________________________________________________________ I only post small pieces of work on here, so check out my novella "Tallulah" in the link below. I'll do swaps when I have time, and free reads on occasion (if I have the time and your work interests me), but I don't do heart swaps. I read and offer honest feedback just as I'd like my readers to do for me. ______________________________________________________________ Check out my novella on Amazon: Four-year-old Tallulah's life revolves around playschool, cBeebies, and her stuffed teddy, Baby-Bear. It also revolves around Mummy's Bad Days, the men that come to the house, and most of all, the mysterious "Papa". She doesn't know that other four-year-olds don't make their own meals, or hide from strange men in the middle of the night. She doesn't know that everything in her life is balanced on somebody else's decision: the right to keep her mother in her life, to leave her in her home. Nor does she know of the biggest decision of them all: the decision to bring her into this dangerous world, or to stop her before she can even begin. A decision that's still going on, every day of her life, in one moment of her mother's. __________________________________________________________ Tallulah by Rubie Mainprize http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00N5917AA/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_9X.nub013Y0S4

Hey! IF you could do me the biggest favor in the world and read this, it would be much appreciated. For free, or for up to three stories, I’d appreciate if you could do the following: My book Lots of Love, Gelato comes out in the next week. What I need from you all is to do at least two of the following. Heart my story Subscribe for updates on the book and my books generally at lotsoflovegelato@gmail.com with the subject line SUBSCRIBE Comment or review my story, (preferably a nice review, even if a little unrealistic, seeing as it comes out on Amazon very soon and there’s not much I can do to change stuff at this point, though the comments ARE very helpful [and have helped me in writing this book.]) Share the link to my page like crazy. If you’d like to do more than two, you are obviously welcome to. I would only ask that you would please actually read the first chapter instead of just reading the comments and hoping you can pretend you read the story. Especially for the price I am willing to do this at. If you have any questions on publishing deals, writing advice, or any other general questions, please email lotsoflovegelato@gmail.com as I check it daily and will reply almost immediately. Thanks everyone! Melanie Bukin xoxo

Hi. I was looking for your label theory piece but I wasn't sure which one it was. Can you tell me? It looks interesting.

(This is an open swap request to everyone. It doesn't matter to me if you're not the person I'm telling this to.)

Hey, there.

So yeah, I did the dreaded thing that you're not supposed to do on Figment: I entered a heart-based contest. The Brandon Sanderson one. I'm pretty sure you've heard of it.

*Takes a really, really, really long sigh*

Oh well.

Anyway, let's get down to business. I need to gain at least 250 hearts for my short story Demon in two days. A lot of people say this is impossible, but I'm going to try to accomplish this monumental task anyway. I mean, we're all writers, right? We'll do a lot of things that are hard to pursue this dream of ours. That's what I'm trying to do with this contest.

So, if you read my story Demon and leave a comment, then I'll read one of yours that is 1,000 words or less. And I'm sorry, but I will not go first. If you ask me to go first, then I will simply delete your post on my wall. I'm not trying to be harsh; I just don't have the time to read your story immediately.

If you do swap with me, then I'll get to your short story or poem before the new year if my story ends up getting 100 hearts or less. However, if my story ends up getting 200 hearts or less, then I will get to your story by the end of January. If my short story ends up getting 400 hearts or less, then I will get to your story by the end of February. I understand this is a long time to wait, but unlike a ton of other people on this site, I'll read your story in its entirety and I will give you a legitimate comment (or a review if I really liked it). Since there will be a lot of swaps I will have to complete, it's going to take me a while to read everyone's stories.

So yeah, if you read all of that then high five! You're awesome. And now I don't know what to say so . . . Yeah. Have a good day, no matter your decision! :D

[If I posted this already, then please delete this. I apologize profusely.]

'Ello amigo! Twas wondering if you could do me a little itty bitty favor and maybe do a swap? I'd be forever in your debt if you did, If you could read whatever story suits your fancy and review/ heart it i'd do the same to you with the story of your choice. However if you don't think it deserves a heart DON'T HEART IT im looking for an earned heart, not a click-and-go heart. Just let me know which story you want me to review and i'll do it within a day or two.If i've already asked you this then I formally apologize (*blinks puppy eyes sheepishly*) THANKS BUDDY!!
