Get It Out of Your Head, And On To Paper



On Friday, July 14th, I had the pleasure of speaking with colleagues from the Civil Service Race Forum for South Asian History Month. I've been busy growing the BlindianProject community IRL, so I have yet to do a lot of workshops/presentations lately. But, I must admit that I miss sharing the why and how backstory of the BlindianProject.


Today, the event organiser kindly emailed to share some of the initial feedback she'd received from colleagues who attended, and I couldn't be happier with the comments.


Here are a few initial takeaways:


  • The world would be a kinder, more empathetic place if more of us openly shared our stories and experiences. But the masses think no one will care about what we write.

  • Many people believe that larger publications/platforms are out of their reach. Self-publishing on their own means a limited reach = will anyone see this?

  • There are circa eight billion people in the world (2023).

    • 5.18 billion, or 64% of the global population, use the internet

    • 4.8 billion, or 59%, use social media.

  • We NEED to believe in the power of our stories.

  • If your words or story can impact one person and help them feel like they aren't alone, that should be considered a success.
