A nice, short piece about using Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way to help oneself get through depressive episodes.
“So you need to hire an “affirmation” army to defeat the depression army before you even start to jot down a creative thought. However, cultivating that creative person is important (not that you have time to take on any more jobs). Because offering the world a true and honest piece of yourself does wonders for your mood.”
That sounds very much like what I’m trying to accomplish here, doesn’t it?
