I Write Because…

Comments 4 Standard


I write because writing orders the chaos in my brain. Imagine walking into your front room after an earthquake. Your broken possessions are scattered on the floor, and the furniture is askew… This is what the inside of my head is like before I write.

Writing, for me,  is akin to surveying the damage, discarding what I cannot repair, and setting the rest right. As a secondary goal, I write because I hope that sharing my difficulties in life provides hope and inspiration for other people.

I’ve had a lifelong struggle with depression, and a long-running issue with self-destructive behaviors such as addiction. I also hope my writing provides insight into the life of dually diagnosed people and disproves some of the stereotypes we suffer from.
