It makes me a little sad to say that Secret Stories seems to be taking a while to gain momentum.
I’ve had one or two submissions so far, but they’re very short and very vague, so I can’t really use them because Secret Stories is about complete honesty.
The idea behind Secret Stories is to tell the story that you’ve kept hidden or felt that you can’t tell people you know.
So basically if you did something you never admitted or felt something that you thought was wrong or embarrassing or had something happen to you that you couldn’t talk about.
You write a post telling your story.
Write it as a diary entry or a letter to someone.
The subject is up to you. It can be about your undying love for your sister’s husband or about the fact that you’re being bullied.
It can be about the fact you hate your mother or that someone did something to you that you’ve never recovered from.
Anything, as long as it helps you talk.
But do write a proper piece.
Please be honest and lay things bare, because as well as helping you, your pieces will help others open up!
Now go write something, submit it HERE and spread the word!!
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s tough getting people to open up (even anonymously, because people can be very suspicious), but I really want to help people and I’d be so sad if I had to give up on this project!!
For anyone looking for ideas, check out LivitLuvit’s TMI Thursday “Post Secret” (which White Rabbit reminded me of). Her’s is a 1-to-2-line anonymous-confession-thingy, but what Secret Stories is looking for is the full story…everything you thought and felt!
