I know, I haven't posted a story or anything forever... Sorry. But... I have been working on a story, LexieVamp(alexis) and I have been Writing Buddies and sending each other our work. The story that I'm working on now is about... Well here's the plot that I sent to Alexis:
It's about a girl (name not chosen) and her mother is extremely depressed. So depressed that she tried to hang herself. The girls step-father caught her mother (his wife) trying to do this and he decided to take her to a Treatment center to get some help. It turns out the mother is a little mentally insane, and it's worse than she thought.
Yeah, I know its kind of jumbled around but here is one that I'm writing right now:
Ambrosia (aka Rosie) is the daughter of a mentally insane woman. Or so it seems that way. Rosie's mother was caught trying the kill herself, because she is depressed. When Steve (Rosie's step-father) caught his wife and her mother trying to do such a thing he drove her to a Treatment center. She would stay there for a month or so to heal. The mother is just not crazy... she's truly mentally insane.
I already have a few pages written and I was going to post it, but I thought it might be...uh...well...you know...for some people and I don't want to make them read it if they don't want to or have it posted because they may know someone that did something like that or close to it and I don't want to hurt anyone.
So do you guys want to read something like this? Not like buy it offa shelf, I mean on here. Although, if you would/would not buy it please tell me! xD Anyway, thank you for taking your time to read this!

Yes, post it!
Many readers find strength and healing in stories that they can relate to so personally. And, of course, there will be plenty of people who won't relate to the situation, but could relate to the feelings of confusion and isolation the main character may have.
If you're worried about people being uncomfortable with the subject matter, feel free to write up a little warning at the very beginning of your post.

Thanks Brandi! I never really thought it could help other people relate... yes I still am a little worried about people being worried about the story, so I will put a warning up. Thanks again Brandi! I'll post the first page right now! I hope you like it!

By the way for anyone else that reads this, I'm sorry about the subject of this thread. You probably thought that it was a story... sorry!

You fooled us! But at least you described your story and didn't just post, say, a grocery list. Okay, I'm to look for the post with the actual story.
