In Which I Share a Link To Survival Tips

A few weeks ago, in an effort to be more authentic, I spent a lot of time writing a post about depression and how writing has helped me survive. Just as I went to publish it, the internet ate it. When that happens, I take it as a sign that I need to use the 24 hour rule* before posting. If I still feel the need after 24 hours, then I go for it.

Now I know why I didn't need to post it. Because Fran Dorf said it better than I ever will. Writing for Survival.

*24 hours is subjective and can actually end up being 24 days.


  1. What a beautiful post by Fran Dorf. For those of us who have wrestled with depression, writing really can be a lifeline, and it's wonderful to encounter others who feel the same way. Thanks for the link!

  2. I can't even imagine how she made it, but then when I'm writing, I remember how much it helps :)


Thank you for posting a comment! I know that sounds a little needy, and maybe it is. I mean, I don't need comment validation to know that I exist, right? But I like to know that someone else (maybe you?) has read what I wrote and felt moved enough to reply. So, thank you.
