Hi everyone. The Stories team was posed a question to which we debated, but couldn’t come to a conclusion. Should the site include fictional stories, fictional stories based in fact or purely factual stories? We invite you to visit and vote (and follow). Thank you!
Yesterday, I asked my Fish of Gold readers for guest posts on Stories That Must Not Die. I was asked whether or not STMND allowed fiction. It was a question we had never considered since no one had asked it.
After much debate amongst the admins, we’re a hung jury on the matter. We’re roughly half for and half against.
I was no help since I vacillated wildly on my answer. At first, I said I thought it would be alright as long as it was fiction rooted in personal experience, or what I call autobiographical fiction.
Then, I changed my vote to no, since perhaps this is more of a place for personal experience, not fiction.
Then, I changed my vote again, because some of my most personal stories have been written through fiction. Sometimes, you need that distance to tell it. So, my final vote was yes with caveats.
