I first met Stereo because of Reverb’ 10. I was a newlywed. I was living in a new country and I had just finished the happiest year of my life. Except that the prompts didn’t take me where I thought I would go and things turned darker than I expected. A beautiful shadow was cast over me as I wrote and I came to terms with a lot of things that had happened in my past. I learned a lot about myself during that year. And I met some wonderful people.
I, like many others, was heartbroken when there was no Reverb for 2011. I was sad to miss the sharing, miss the reflection, and miss the community. Very few people blog to a vacuum. We want to know our words are read and that they resonate with someone, anyone.
When Stereo announced that they were launching the Scintilla Project, I knew that I had to sign up. A fortnight of story sharing? It sounds right up my ally. There will be two prompts a day, with a promise that you can save a prompt to go back to later if you don’t like a future one. It’s only two weeks. But that time could change your life.
Words connect us to other people. Stories help us share our lives in such a way that we can actually reach out and feel others, understand them, know them. Will you share your story with us?
