Why January isn’t a Time for Writing

This article was originally published on A Daydreamer’s Thoughts.


The beginning of the year can be a tough time for someone with mental health issues. Whether you’re lifted by Christmas or crawl into bed to avoid it, the period following it can be much harder to slog through.

We’re surrounded by people proposing New Year’s Resolutions, which sounds like a great way to get your life on track. But anyone with depression knows that when resolutions fall by the wayside, we feel like failures – and the very things that were meant to assist us send us hurtling towards rock bottom.

So I don’t have any writing resolutions for January.

I actually write very little around this time of year. What I do instead is twirl ideas around in my head, questioning and rethinking my characters’ decisions – all of the behind-the-scenes thought processes that writers need to go through without having to look at the dreaded manuscript!
