“My advice for my fellow figgies is, look around you. Everywhere. You can find amazing things in every corner if you just stop and look. Use memories and emotions as inspiration. You can turn your worst day into something uplifting for someone else through writing. And reach out to others. The people that care about you as a writer, who respect you, give the best advice.” – A. G. Bennett Continue reading

“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

“One of the pieces of advice that I find myself constantly giving is to read your compositions out loud. This helps me to find mistakes or awkward phrases. Also, just continue writing if you love it. There comes a point when others’ opinions do not solely govern what you write but you are still humble enough to take constructive advice. Work hard and write what you love!” – Eastlyn Ullmann Continue reading

“I enjoy that everyone here is so supportive. Everyone is here to support you and actually help you to become an author… which, of course, is a dream of mine! Also, unlike other sites, it is much easier to get constructive criticism here. Those are probably the two most important things a writer can have (besides an ice-cream break now and then, but you get the picture).” – Stormie D. Continue reading

“I’ve found that a lot of us are alike in ways that I didn’t expect when I first joined [Figment]. Everyone critiques in such a polite and respectful but totally honest way without crossing over to trolling territory, and that’s something I really appreciate and haven’t found on any other writing website before.” – Madison L.H.

“The more you read, the more you open yourself up to the endless possibilities. If you’re unsure of what you’re writing, ask help from a trusted friend. If you don’t want your friends to know about it, share it on this wonderful site and ask for a swap. Just never stop writing, We all have that story we aren’t sure of. But don’t let that stop you. Happy writing! :)” – Unmasked Dreams Continue reading
