Stressed! Such an overused and cop-out word, but that is definitely what I’m feeling. It’s blizzard-ing. I can’t get out and I have no supplies.
How do I possibly put this together? I think part of it is in the nature of my topic. Literally what is a secret. AND how can I narrow down such a large, personal idea. I’m writing this blog post in somewhat of a panic, because I’m quickly realizing that people aren’t going to want to tell me, a stranger, their biggest secrets. This was the original idea, to get people to talk to me about their secrets and what came of their situation. But they’re not going to say it to me. I mean who even am I? A crazy girl on the street asking for people to tell me something they’ve never told anyone.
Thanks to Mollie and Christina, however, I’ve come up with a different idea. Instead of making podcasts that are just one person, and asking them about their secrets, I’ll collect secrets anonymously. Then, I’ll have other people read the secrets and record them. I’ll compile the secrets into podcasts with around 15 per podcast, and then pick out a theme. I still plan to interview people about secrets and get some stories from those who are willing to share, but my original plan is simply not realistic.
I’m wondering if anyone has any other ideas for podcasts that I can make? Or if I can somehow still do my original idea? So far I’ve only interviewed my friends, and I had a hard time getting anything out of them. Granted, I think it might be harder for me to get secrets from people I know than from strangers, but maybe I should just be giving it another shot? SOS. Still snowing.
Let me know if you have any other idea! (Please) Thanks friends. You rock. Never change.
