A story about CSP

Hi all. I'm a writer and I have been for as long as I can remember. This year for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) I think I'm going to use my writing skills to get the word out about CSP and write a novel about a fictional character who suffers from it. What do you guys think of that idea? Would any of you be interested in helping me? Not with the writing of course (haha) but with like... quotes and stuff, you know, getting other people's perspectives and whatnot on what it's like to live with CSP? And maybe there would eventually be a scene where the character meets up with other people who have CSP and you guys could help me with that? I really think this would be an awesome way for me to get the word out, you know? Thoughts?

I think this is a really great idea! I just finished up the book Kissing Doorknobs, a fictional book about a girl with OCD. CSP is something people rarely hear about because we are all so reluctant to discuss it out in the open. We're ashamed and scared of judgment and I think having more literature on this particular subject would help keep us from feeling like we have to keep our issues under wraps, you know? It won't be quite so taboo I guess. I used to write for the Coterie Theater in Kansas City, Missouri (my freshman and sophomore year in highschool) so I definitely would help you in any way you need! please feel free to email me - (My name is Chelsea by the way).
