    Perchance to Dream

    Lost amongst the waves with little left to guide, the money has deserted and the dreams have withered and died.

    This is a repetitive list poem, which is as it sounds. Each line starts with the same few words and lists various items and objects.

Figment is moving to Underlined! Either transition when Underlined opens or find a new writing website. Save your writing!

Hi John,

I saw you on the 'Crafting Science Fiction' group and decided to pop on over. I don't normally to swaps (as I'm swamped with real life most of the time and whenever I get a break I have the choice to either write my own stories or read someone elses...guess which one usually wins), but I really, really need a fellow Sci-Fier to read my story and tell me what they think. up for a swap? I'll read anything of yours, provided it doesn't include the few items I won't read (slash, rape, suicide, or really foul language (ie God's name in vain or the like)). In return, could you read Seeds of Treachery? I'm looking for an honest review here. If you like it, tell me why. If not, again, tell me why ( I know that not everyone will like it and I'm okay with that). If you're so-so, tell me where you think it went wrong. I've got a thick skin, so fire away. Also, if you do decide to agree to this, please tell me what kind of review you would like for your story. In-depth (grammar and all) or medium (just plot and character)?

Anyway, thanks for your time.

God Bless, Rachael

P.S. Because of my afore mentioned hectic life, my reviews might be spaced pretty far from each other. If you ever feel as if I'm taking too long, post on my wall. It could be that I'm so busy I've forgotten about Figment and your PM will alert me. :D

Hello most excellent person in the entire world. Too much? Sorry, I'll tone it back a bit.

Hey, it's Tibby here, just dropping by to see if you'd like to swap. If so, it would be lovely if you read my book 'Angel of Despair'. Keep in mind that it is a heart based contest, but also keep in mind if you don't think it's worthy, don't heart it. Simple as that. I don't want a heart just because it's the thing to do.

After you have read and reacted as you deem appropriate to my book, please drop a comment on my page to let me know what to read. It may take a moment for me to get back to you, but fear not, I will return the swap. On my honor, I swear it so.

Thank you for your time, and I'm terribly sorry if you're not into swaps. Having a splendid evening (morning, afternoon).(:

This isn't a swap request. Do you have a story you want edited? Do you want detailed, in-depth critiques? I hope so, because I'm a freelance editor.

I run an online business called SoPro Critique. I accept nearly any story - even novels - for editing. My mission is to help writers across the internet, one typo at a time.

To submit a story, please send your name, your story, and the word-count to If your story has a title or an intended genre, please include that as well.

If your story has more than 3,000 words, please read this. Here's my FAQ. If you have any questions that aren't listed here, feel free to comment on my wall or email me.

Looking forwards to working with you.
