IWSG Question of the Day: How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?
Yes and no. Some of you know my history and I’ll try not to get too personal here.
The yes part is that I’ve been writing to make it through life in general. There have been many times that I didn’t write for extended lengths of time and let life take over. Sometimes it was due to specific events, sometimes things just got crappy. Not exactly the smartest thing I ever did at that time, but that was also a time period that I was hiding the fact that I wrote.
Now for the no. Writing used to be enough, but more recently it hasn’t. I’ve been reluctant to post about medical issues and I will continue to be for a bit longer. If you’ve caught me in person, I may speak about it, but I’m not quite ready to post it on social media.
