I am looking for volunteers who want to share.

As some of you know, I am participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year, so I decided to take this opportunity to write a novel that I have been thinking of doing for years.

I am looking to do a book about/by people who self injure. I have been a cutter for 13 years and I firmly believe that there is not nearly enough awareness for something of this magnitude. There are a few books out there that touch on the subject and even a couple that are specifically on self injury. Most if not all of these books however, discuss self injury from a clinical point of view, not truly discussing individuals. I am hoping that by collecting stories and creating a compilation that focuses less on the "illness" and more on the "you aren't alone"ness we will be able to create something that truly helps those who deal with this every day. Consisting of 30-40 individuals, this compilation is aimed to raise awareness and disprove the ideas that are so prevelent in todays society.

If you choose to participate you will have the choice of having your name changed and your identity protected, or using your own name. I have come to terms with my self injury and everyone in my life is aware of it, but I remember when I hadn't told anyone and I understand the importance of privacy and confidentiality. If you choose to participate please message me and I will provide a questionairre which will be followed by more personal emails, and if you feel comfortable phone/skype/msn interviews. If at any time you feel uncomfortable, you are free to decline to answer questions or ask to cease participation. NaNoWriMo is in November of this year, and I am hoping to compile the book at that time. After the book is completed, it will be edited and if you would like, I will send you a copy of your chapter for approval.

Please think this over and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I truly hope that we can work together to raise awareness for this cause that is so important.

I would like to participate, but self-injure in ways other than cutting (although I cut for a while). Now I struggle with hitting myself. Can I still participate?

Yes. I would go into more detail about what I'm looking for, but I dont want to make this triggering. Let me just put it this way, the only thing that I feel is no on the lines of what I'm looking for are E.D., not because its not a form of self injury, but because I am really hoping to focus on the more, I dont know, physical? forms of self injury.

I'm recovering from self injury, and I attempted suicide. I'd be happy to share my story with others. I'm currently 17, so it would give teenagers something to relate to.
