Figment is a personal space that allows you to promote and showcase your writing, in groups, on the site and on your blog.
The layout is very user friendly and easy to understand. I signed up yesterday.
I create a profile, joined some groups containing potential readers of my favourite genre for writing and then I posted a flash fiction.
For you writers out there who are dying to get some feedback on your writing, there are a few things you can do. Have a friend read it. Or, post a synopsis on your Web site and hopefully receive some responses to your upcoming work. I did that at my Web site and I did receive some nice feedback. See how it looks using WIX gallery. Another way, is to create some writing that showcases your style and talent and post it on Figment.
The Figment writing tool allows you to create a cover, choose limited styles of text and layout and then make it available to the many readers on the site. See my example below. Notice how many response options there are for readers.
Next step is promotion. Go into the forums. Study the highest number of responses. What does the post have that makes it so attractive. One thing I noticed is "games". A lot of the site members seem to be young and they like games or chain activity. Come up with something and get readers moving your way.
