Hi dear figgie friends. Since the sad news that figment is closing I have felt guided to create a writing project. It would be geared toward writer, aspiring authors and book lovers. I just wanted feedback of what sort of content you (as a reader and writer) would be willing to read. Down below I have some ideas: Be willing to give me more feedback. - Book recommendations?

- Author's Q and A

- Must read list

- Can we just talk about one of our favorite MC?

- Self Publishing 101

- Publishing House 101

- Devotionals

What else? and would you be interested in image/video/one paragraph blog? Please be honest.

Thank you for your time
