There are multiple purposes for this blog. First, I'd like to share with you how mental illness can interfere with or enhance the writer's life. Second, I want to explore a more disciplined approach to the writing life. This blog will hold me accountable as I navigate story throughout my battle with mental illness.

Objectives and Confession

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will continue to follow me in my course of pursuing a Writer's Life while at the same time battling mental illness. This won't be a twitter or facebook type of posting. I hope to post  meaningful, relevant information that can help those of both camps: The aspiring author, those with mental illnesses, and those who are both.

Those whose lives are not affected by mental illness will hopefully find compassion and understanding in those who do, as well as possibly learning a thing or two about the writing process from the little I do know and what I am learning as I go. Those who do suffer from a mental illness, I wish to impart to them how writing can assist with the healing process. A cathartic process that can apply to anybody in any situation. One that I am embarking on currently.

I confess that although I've read a lot of fiction and many books on the art and craft of writing, I am in no way an expert. However, my goal is to live a Writer's Life, and the invitation is open to join me as I learn and grow.
