The subtle scraping of metal on tile is brain boiling. The shifting, grunting, sighing, laughing... All of it can be quite distracting as one stands, walking to the podium and tapping the mic. "Mic check - one....two....three..." That's all a distraction really. All things one does so they can prolong talking as much as possible. The speaker inhales once. Then opens their maw. "Uh, hello." They swallow. "My name is Bojana...." The audience repeats verbatim. Hi Bojana... "And I...." Another inhale. "I have a identity complex." You aren't sure how you ended up in a 'self help' group, and yet, here you are - about to tell an odd bunch of people about yourself, and possibly learn things that you didn't even know existed in your own personal being. NO GOD MODDING. I really shouldn't have to explain this one. DON'T BECOME YOUR OWN MARY-SUE. We all have problems, and this is a way to be able to talk about them in detail - but no one likes to hear someone that constantly moping in their own misery. BE COURTEOUS. People are going to be talking about some of the personal stuff that they've been through in their life. If you don't agree with some of their choices, and you wish to give advice, or help in any way - present your opinion in a respectful manner. If you cannot comply, it's immediate determination. STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF. This role-play is about YOU. Not one of your characters. It's an outlet that can make you really get into the nitty-gritty of yourself, and help you personalize other characters in the future. Play as you will in your real life - and don't be afraid to add your own personal habits and such into the mix. POST IN THIRD PERSON. The best way to learn about yourself is to post as if you were a character. Plus, it makes the story flow much better.
