I cried for you, but you have done something beautiful here. I know when I shared some secrets of my own through art, I felt very free; I hope you found the same relief. :hug:

Thanks for reading and getting something out of this piece.  It's fiction, though. This didn't happen to me.

 I realized shortly after posting my response that it'd been classified as fiction, but I hadn't been sure as to whether that was because it was a flash piece or because it was truly fiction. Still, it's very meaningful.

nice.  you manage to give us hints of the obvious, without actually being obvious or graphic.

This is amazing, though. That's something like I was trying to type.
Anyway, congrats on a well-deserved DD.

I really like the writing style and the way in which you've portrayed the character. It feels like a very real account of a girl who was raped/molested as a child, to me.

PinkyMcCoversong Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Professional Writer
Thanks. I'm glad it felt real to you, though I assure you, it's fiction. Unfortunately, there are people out there for whom this wouldn't be fiction, which is part of what inspired me to write it.

Well, you nailed it in a way I would have thought only survivors would know- but it's nice, because it means there's understanding among those who haven't been through the same. :la: It even lent insight into my own struggles with sexual abuse, which is really awesome. So a DD well deserved, yes.

What is this about? I have a bit of a problem comprehending prose sometimes, it'd be helpful for you to explain.

I tend not to explain my writing, as I feel it's up to a reader to decide what a story is about.

Pardon my french, but I have no fucking clue of what the deeper meaning is and it is awfully confusing. The writing and layout of it is beautiful, but I am so confused by it. Who is the man that was Googled?

I interpreted it as a story about molestation, and she found the guy on Google later, which solidifies his existence when she's been telling herself it never really happened. :B Of course, if you saw differently, you're not wrong either.

part of the power in the piece is that the secret is maintained even through the catharsis of the chalk writing and that the chalked words, while apparently a bit freeing, reaffirm the self-made promise of keeping the secret.

Very effective and compelling narrative - I always fall or this type of confessional style. Congrats on the feature!

Thanks! Though I'm not sure I'd call it confessional, since it's fiction!
