To be clear: the depressive lens does not preclude hope. Hope is a feature of it. Continuing to write when stopping is easier? Hope. Writing this essay or submitting a story or slipping in a stealth rhyme and believing someone will catch it? All hope. Because I’m starting at a deficit, I’m generating buckets full of hope to wake up, to get up, to put words on screen.Writing Through the Depressive Lens | Spoonie Authors Network
There is a lot of good information in this post about the challenge of writing through depression or, frankly, any other kind of ongoing health issue. I appreciate H.E. Casson for sharing their wisdom with readers today.
