The write life

So I had a dream a few nights ago that I figured out how to write my book. I have been struggling with a book idea for months now, unable to find the best way to approach it, and basically scared out of my mind to put pen to paper (or fingers to keys). In my dream, I wrote out a list of questions to answer and then began writing the answers one by one, this turned into my book. 

Once I woke up, I realized I had dreamed up a brilliant idea. And decided that was the way I was going to write my book! I wrote out a huge list of questions yesterday and answered my first one this morning. 

My book is going to be a sort of guide for people dealing with depression. Not a medical guide, not a therapy guide, but a day to day guide. A help for the little things no one really thinks about figuring out. Like how to get out of bed in the morning, or how to get through an anxious day. I wish I had the answers to these questions when things were really bad, and since I've dealt with depression for over ten years, I've had plenty of time to answer these questions for myself. 

Another twist is that I'm thinking about writing it in a sort of diary format. My story will be intertwined as well as adding maybe pictures and art work. It will give a little insight into my life and brain, and hopefully help and inspire. I'm excited about it and hope I can make it work!

So I was wondering if you had any questions you would want answered about dealing with depression or just hard times in general? If so, leave them in the comments, I would love to have your insight!

Wish me luck and vision and fast fingers for typing!

  1. All I can say is WRITE WRITE WRITE! Even if all you ever do is keep a notebook with notes and ideas. I have been writing all my life. Back in my 20's I even sent off manuscripts to publishers, knowing full well that I would get rejection letters- and I did! But it never stopped me from writing. I too struggle with it- I have a novel that is "almost" finished and I just can't seem to get the ending right. But I still think about it and edit what I have. Even if no one ever sees it, write for yourself! You can do it!


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
