Ernest Hemningway once wrote:
Write hard and clear about what hurts.
I just read the latest post on Randy Murray’s site. It’s called: Write about your pain.
And that made think about that old Hemningway quote, at the top.
The thing I always do, when I’m depressed and low, is that I open DayOne or a paper notebook, and I start to write about the things that really scares me. Things about your past. Things you can’t bring up – ever. In other words: what hurts. Write them down.
