    Anything But Ordinary

    Bryce remembers it like it was yesterday. The scent of chlorine. The blinding crack and flash of pain. Blood in the water.

    When she wakes up in the hospital, all Bryce can think of is her disastrous Olympic diving trial. But everything is different now. Bryce still feels seventeen, so how can her little sister be seventeen, too? Life went on without her while Bryce lay in a coma for five years. Her best friend and boyfriend have just graduated from college. Her parents barely speak. And everything she once dreamed of doing—winning a gold medal, traveling the world, falling in love—seems beyond her reach.

    But Bryce has changed too, in seemingly impossible ways. She knows things she shouldn’t. Things that happened while she was asleep. Things that haven’t even happened yet. During one luminous summer, as she comes to understand that her dreams have changed forever, Bryce learns to see life for what it truly is: extraordinary.

Hello fellow Figment member! I recently entered the Kiss Writing Contest (or better known as the Patterson Contest), and I was wondering if you would be willing to give me feedback on my story Loving Shards.

Now, I know that the majority of us don’t particularly like it when people spam our walls asking for heart swaps. However, this is no way a heart swap; I would prefer feedback on this and would greatly appreciate any feedback you have to give me (though hearts/reactions are greatly appreciated :D)

Please keep in mind that I may not be able to leave a comment/review on your story; I’m posting this same post onto almost 11,000 different people here on Figment. However, I can provide you with services. I can either make you a cover, teach you how to make covers, or leave you with a full-blown review (after the contest is complete). You’ll have to join the groups I’m in to get these services =/

So, without further ado: could you leave me some feedback on my story Loving Shards (and heart/react to it if you want to)? Just click the cover below to get to the story. Thank you for taking the time to read this long post!

Hi, I wrote my story, It's Not Okay, for the seventeen magazine contest. It would mean the world to me if you would read my story and heart it. Reviews would be nice as well. If you do not do free reads then let me know and I will gladly do a swap in exchange for the heart. Thank you!
