(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.]

Hey Petty! The extended deadline in The Library for the fifth round is until Tuesday at 11 pm instead so that the judges can try to get in all their first reviews so you can edit if you'd like!
