THIS. Just… this. Those six word stories come up a lot, and never have I seen one so powerful and so true. If I can tell anyone who is going through some real shit (whether that be depression, anxiety, grief, or any combination of things) anything, it would be this. Self care is not something to be underestimated. It is good and it is wholesome, and trust me, I know it’s really hard to believe that it is okay to not do a homework assignment and instead take a nap. And it is okay to sit in your room quietly for a night and it is okay to go out with friends and distract yourself too. I know that it’s hard. I know your limbs are heavy and tears never feel far from your eyes. But, self care will save your life. Don’t forget to eat a little. Don’t underestimate sleep. Drink water. And always take time to do some things you love, even if they seem little.

Remember, you’re not alone and you never will be. We’re going through this together.

So accurate.



As long as I’m in confessional mode, here’s another thing that makes first-drafting difficult for me: knowing where the story is going. This is something a lot of writers struggle with, especially new ones.

Here’s what I do: I outline as much as I can, with the knowledge that outlines are essentially acts of great and foolish optimism, road maps that will get rewritten along the way.

I had my boyfriend who smokes use matches for a few days instead of a lighter and record the date and time and whatever he was thinking about while smoking. 
It’s funny that he quit smoking a few weeks after this project.

Don’t google signs of a mental breakdown. It isn’t very comforting.

Perhaps you can write better if you leave the mistakes.
