Concept of this project:
A My Life Story is a brief moment, a fragmentary story told by a person about that captures some part of how they see themselves. Something in the story appeals to the person because it reveals an insight into their character or their life.
The simple reason is that people are fascinated by other stories. If that is all the project achieves, that will be sufficient, however it offers the possibility that a suitably qualified person might offer commentary on what the stories reveal (overall, rather than individual stories). Word limit might be around 2-300 words.
This project aims to gather as many stories as possible from a diverse range of people. They would be published initially online and, if it gains enough interest, potentially could be published in a more ambitious form such as a book. Writers can remain remain anonymous and include an alias of their choosing.
