Hi dear figgie friends. Since the sad news that figment is closing I have felt guided to create a writing project. It would be geared toward writer, aspiring authors and book lovers. I just wanted feedback of what sort of content you (as a reader and writer) would be willing to read. Down below I have some ideas: Be willing to give me more feedback. - Book recommendations?

- Author's Q and A

- Must read list

- Can we just talk about one of our favorite MC?

- Self Publishing 101

- Publishing House 101

- Devotionals

What else? and would you be interested in image/video/one paragraph blog? Please be honest.

Thank you for your time

Lauren, I just wanted to thank you for all your effort in trying to keep Figment alive. It is because of the people such as yourself that I was still able to call Figment my home these past couple of years. It hurts me to acknowledge that Figment will soon disappear forever, such pain I know you can relate to. But I won't ever be able to forget what all Figment has done for me in those same couple of years, the happiness I have felt in finding people who enjoyed writing as much as I do, if not more. If nothing else, being here gave me an excuse to write down what I couldn't get out of my head, and I dread imagining what would have happened to me otherwise. I guess, in conclusion, I would just like to begin to express my gratitude to you for playing your part in making Figment my home, and give you my sincerest wishes that there will be another door opening while this one closes, both for yourself and the rest of those that would call themselves Figgies. Best regards, Dustin (in case you ever need an opinion on your work, or if you just want to share where the winding road takes you)

Hello everyone, 

I feel a need to update you on the happenings around Figment in case you don't frequent the forums.

  Figment is shutting down.   

There are no words for the gap in my heart at this news. To outsiders, this may just be a writing site, but I have grown and been welcomed here. For any of you feeling the same, you aren't alone in that regard. I am happy to give out my email to anyone that would like to continue swapping stories/writing ideas in that way. Just let me know.  

I have one final request- I want to know what Figment means to you. What have you learned? How have you grown? Feel free to leave your response on my page.     

I love you all to bits. Your writing never ceases to amaze me, and, from the bottom of my heart, I wish you all the success in your future endeavors. Do not ever let someone tell you that you or your writing is inferior. We are writers.

This is our expression.

This our story.

This is our home.
