Alright, so last email David sent out talked about this endeavour that I'm doing.
It's a book of submissions from people on here who have struggled with self-harm. This ranges from the simplest of things all the way up to and including attempting suicide. I'm trying to gather submissions from people on here. There's already a group set up on here called Self-Harm. I'm trying to reach out to others on here who had problems with self-harm or those who are still struggling. I know I've struggled with it and it's not easy. I had to go it alone. Let me tell you it's not easy. My parents didn't understand why, or how to deal. They basically said stop now it's not good. But didn't support my attempts to stop, they just pressured me into stopping. This book and this group is to help people, in a caring a loving way. The best way to quit something successfully is with positive comments of "you can do it" "you're stronger than this" etc. I'm hoping that soon I'll be getting a large number of submissions from writing this, because currently I just have 2 submissions (not including my own) and it's not enough to create a book. Within the group I'm taking ideas for themes and ways to do layouts etc.
If you want to send in a submission you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org It goes straight to me, it's 100% confidential no one other than me will see it, if I want to use it to have an example for the submissions I'll ask you before hand. I've said before that this can be a poem, a story, a combination etc. What everyone is thinking is that someone writes a poem or sends in a drawing (what ever you want) and then writes a short story about this is why i started to cut and i'm still struggling or I've stopped cutting and I haven't for "X" years. (Now this isn't JUST for people who cut). You can also use your real name or use the user name you have on here or another name you have that you'd like. (IE Violet isn't my real Name but it's what I'm using for my submission) Hopefully putting this out there will help me get more submissions!!
