Book Review: The Outsider, by Stephen King

Hey everybody! How’s it going? I thought I’d post another book review. A while back, I read The Outsider, by Stephen King. We all know Stephen King. He writes very scary stories.

Reviews! On my birthday!

Okay, it’s my birthday, and all I want are reviews! There were over 200 downloads of my books; thank you all so much!   If you could get yer bad seff over to that corporate juggernaut known as Amazon, and write me a review,… Continue Reading “Reviews! On my birthday!”

Published!

Writing and Depression

What I wanted to write about today is writing and depression. Specifically, writing for depression and writing with depression. There is no question that, in the treatment of depression, that writing is an invaluable tool. I myself have used it countless times, and in… Continue Reading “Writing and Depression”

An anxious mind writes through the right lens

One of the things my therapist and I have been working on through recovery is seeing the world through a healthy lens. I’ve learned to apply this to my writing as well. The mind is constantly receiving information, and our consciousness routinely files it… Continue Reading “An anxious mind writes through the right lens”

Writing and Anxiety

Let’s talk about mental illness and writing. For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for my entire life. It can be a long, hard struggle. Recently, my anxiety flared up so much that I had to take… Continue Reading “Writing and Anxiety”
