So, yesterday I mentioned my idea to make Stigma Fighters into a book. Then last night I talked to Sarah Fader about it and it’s happening. Stigma Fighters is becoming a book!
Currently we’re compiling everyone’s essays for editing. The deadline to send things in is January 1st.
I started working on all of the editing this morning. In reading all of the essays that everyone have written I had forgotten how interesting everything was. I mean, I read them all as they were posted but I didn’t remember every little detail. It would be impossible to retain everything they expressed in their work.
The editing process is a new thing for me. I’ve never done this before. It’s honestly quite scary and overwhelming, but I’m excited about it.
If you receive a message from me asking you to look at certain parts of your essay, please do not take it personally. Sarah and I are simply trying to make this the absolute best that we can.
I am so incredibly excited about everything that we’re doing. I can’t wait till it’s done and we have something we can show people. It’ll be especially exciting when we start our college campus tour.
This book would be the perfect thing to sell there. If students have one before Stigma Fighters come to their school, they could ask for a certain person to come speak. It would be amazing. They would have the opportunity to kind of help plan what the event at their school would be like.
