Mental health. Everyone has it. Somehow that message from Deac. Heidi Goehmann struck me as really chock-full of perspective! And, yes, while it’s a message for everyone, I think it’s a message specifically for writers, too.
The Truth about Mental Health: For you and for your children
I hope to keep that concept in mind in my life and in my writing. Maybe we really should just quote it verbatim! “Mental health: everyone has it.”
Obviously, this can play a role when we develop our characters, sketch out reactions as we write along, and help us have greater perspective when we reread our own work or delve into someone else’s. A catchy way to look around at different angles while keeping it real.
Thanks, Heidi! Great post/podcast! Check out her website, “I Love My Shepherd.”
