This is breaking my heart. Look, @ello, this is what you've created, this amazing thing.
"Dear Ms. Anske,
My name is [...] and I am [...]. I like to write about my life experiences and I'll post them on [...] from time to time. I has (sic) been going through a particularily (sic) rough point in my life and my writing showed this. One of my friends who I had introduced to [...] saw this and reported me to the school and they contacted my mother who then made me go to a therapist. As soon as I got the chance, I deleted my account. I had just recently stopped going to the therapist after [...] deemed that I was not a danger to myself when I created a new [...] account. (I'm kind of addicted to it.) The first work I posted was about everything that had happened and it was a closure for me. It helped me gain the courage to try and talk it over with the [...] that turned me in. That turned out to be a disaster. I was told no after asking them to meet up with me so we could talk and then later that night I found out that they had gone to the counselor about my newest work. I blocked [...] as fast as I could outraged about the whole situation.
I feel like no matter what I do when I write from my heart I'll always get in trouble and I don't know what to do. I really love writing and being able to share my experiences with other people so that maybe one person can know that they're not alone.
Anyway I'm sorry about how long this is and I know it probably doesn't make a lick of sense but I hope that maybe you have some advice for me.
Thanks a bunch."
"My dear [...],
I’m so sorry to hear about this. Sorry you weren’t able to share yourself as you wanted to. One thing you can do is write under a pseudonym. Invent a name, and maybe even change gender, make it a [...] name. Then create a new [...] account [...] and with that account—the one no one knows about—[...] start posting under a new name. If that doesn’t help, or if you think that you will be found out again, I have another idea for you.
I’m leading a writing community on Ello—it’s a new social network that is free of ads and doesn’t compare to what’s out there [...]. Let me know if you want me to send you an invitation [...]. Create an account there under whatever name you want (you don’t have to list your legal name). Then follow me or email me and tell me what your account name is. Then post your writing there and tag @ellowrites (the community I lead). Slowly you will accumulate readers. No one will ever be able to track you down there. A lot of artists are abandoning their social media accounts in favor of Ello. I’m loving it.
Let me know what you decide. I’d love to support you. And no matter what anyone tells you, NEVER STOP WRITING.
I love you.
