My way of getting back into the swing of things.

Depression is a bore, a sulky, overweight, useless bore. Especially when it drags on week after week. I miss writing with a passion that almost consumes me, but still feel unable to continue with my latest book. The dreariness of my mind and the exhaustion of my body prevent me from concentrating on the one thing that makes my life exuberant.
