There's the cutest little story posted on Everydayfiction.com called Conversation with a Giant:
Of course you should all read the story because it's cute, and give it a good rating because it's cute. But let's focus on the more important things here - me.
You see, the author, Kate Sheeran (who is clearly now famous, being a published author and all) is my critique partner. Which means I critiqued that cute story. Which means I am famous by association. So make sure you read it and give it a good rating because it makes me look better. Thank you very much.
