“It’s great to be surrounded by such a spectacular group of writers, and they are the ones who have created a second home for me here on Figment. I love the feedback I get on my pieces, and I love giving feedback as well. I can’t count the number of stories and poems I’ve read so far and thought, “Wow, I wish I could write like that.” I draw inspiration from my fellow authors as well, and I like asking for opinions on titles, character names, and plot twists. Without these people, these friends, my writings wouldn’t be half as much as they are now.” – E. Anderson Continue reading
