Writing Your Way Out of Depression
Just remember, says Carlo, that how you write is not important.
You're not going to be graded. Jot down phrases, skip the punctuation if you
feel like it. "This doesn't have to be perfect," she says. To make the
process more pleasing, Carlo suggests buying a journal that you will really
enjoy using -- perhaps one with pictures, or one with colored pages -- and
using pens or colored pencils that are fun and appealing.
"Just start to write," says Carlo. "Don't expect
your writing to be monumental. It's the process that's important."
