  • So I know that my story "Man That You Fear" was deleted, but if I improved it somehow would it be welcome on this wiki?

    • It would need to pass a deletion appeal in order to be posted. That being said, reading your latest comment about how writing the story has affected you negatively, I would suggest taking a lot of time to decide if you think that's the best option as it would require a lot of revision and likely open it up to people reviewing your experiences and discussing methods of presenting it to help it fit in line with a horror story.

      Unsolicted advice incoming.

      As a survivor myself who knows how helpful the process of writing can be, I've found that it's not necessary (and often very difficult) for me to write autobiographically.  I find that trying to do this helps me far less than just letting my imagination go.  The ideas will be there.  The emotions will be there.  All that stuff inside you that you're trying to process is going to show up on the page, even if you write a story from a seed that has nothing to directly to do with your experience.  I think this can be so much more illuminating and healing than just recording our experiences (or fictionalized facsimiles thereof).  You can read back over what you wrote and say, "Wow, why did my mind make this connection?"  It can actually become fun, a safer sort of healing exercise.

      I urge you to give it a try.  Look for a writing prompt that excites you and say, "Where's the horror in this?" and then just let your imagination go where it will.  You may surprise yourself.  :-)
