But the new topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/977744.html
So this is definitely the space to talk about that, and perhaps hash some stuff out.
As I was about to post this, I encountered an article that made me think of a quite a few writers I've known over the years, and their struggles: https://writingcooperative.com/writing-through-depression-6042ed15e946#.huqqld43f
I was also saw something about "tips for writers". But the only one that I really thought was worth sharing (that wasn't completely cliched) was to KEEP PUSHING YOURSELF. Not just against the forces that make you want to not keep moving forward (see above) but also to be better, to take that limit of what you *think* you can do, and keep pushing at that wall until it breaks.
How are you going to push yourself this week?
