Tell me a story
If you like, I would love for you to tell me a story. Specifically, respond to the prompt: "What is the strangest thing that you have ever experienced?" Use the form below, or send me an email directly. Of course you do not have to share your name.
For more information, scroll down below the contact boxes.
Because I love hearing or reading people's stories! I just genuinely want to see how people respond. That's all.
What are you going to do with the responses? Is this for a project?
I am going to read the responses and, for now, that is all. I have no definite or specific plans to do anything else with them. If, in the future, I might wish to include any submitted stories as part of a creative project, the authors of those stories would be duly contacted and consulted during the planning of any such project.
Seriously though, you're a writer. Wouldn't you just steal my response to use in one of your own stories?
I am extremely flattered that you would describe or address me as "a writer!" I mean, I'm not, really. I am a schmuck who sometimes writes for fun.
In all earnestness, though, no: I am not out to flagrantly steal anyone's experiences or ideas. I think that wouldn't be a nice thing to do. And if you don't trust my integrity and don't want to share, the cool thing is that you don't have to!
This is a weird thing to do, right?
Yeah, I guess so. But I really like hearing people's stories, like I said, and I don't think there's any harm in asking.
Can I share something else with you that doesn't really have to do with the prompt?
I would prefer that you didn't. Thank you.
