Posted:Hey all, I am collecting stories for a show I am writing.
Here is what I am looking for, and please feel free to IM them or to email them to DivineWomenGroup@yahoo.com
They can be of any length and should be based on an experience of self-discovery that you have had, either good or bad.
It can be about how you felt good about yourself and someone spoke of ignorance and it hurt. How you tried something to improve yourself and if it worked or not. About the gender identification process. About discovering your sexuality, especially if you are gay. About your comfort with your body, size. If someone did something to you that either made your self-esteem and personal developement go forward or even move back.
I am looking for the positives, the negatives and anything in between. And more than anything I want emotions on it. What it did for your psyche, for your emotions, for your worldly perspectives.
If I decide to use your story I will probably write and ask questions and explain further what I will be doing with it, and ask for permission.
In the end the goal is to get people to see two things... How their actions effect others, even unintentionally, and to offer something for *almost* everyone to identify with at some stage of their personal growth. Real names will not be used.
