I hate My Writing

Why Creative People are More Prone to Depression & What we Can Do ...

 

I think I may or may not be going through another bout of Writer’s Depression  and I hate. It makes me feel miserable and wonder why I write. I struggle with vanishing from social media and ive deleted a few Instragram accounts in the past for my author page. Then I have to start over with a new account and grow my followers again once the depression has lifted. And it’s not like I can just not write anymore otherwise I feel Writer’s Guilt. I hate being a writer. I hate that creatives, especially writers, are more prone to mental illness and depression. It’s great suffering being in your thoughts with negative self-talk. I feel like my shit sucks and I don’t know why I continue to write.

I also believe that when I blogged about 11 Things Ive Learned the Hard Way About Being an Indie Author & Finding Your Purpose/Gift I had been depressed. There was two other writer who read that post and it discouraged them from publishing. I want to say that it was more than likely own self-loathing talking when I posted it. I still feel awful about that.


I am currently working on this:

3 Bizarre but Interesting Movies I’ve Watched on Streaming Services This Year

As a writer and fan of scifi/fantasy and a big fan of Black Mirror, I’m always delighted  when I discover a bizzare movie on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube or whereever.  If you’re into odd movies like I am, you can thank me later. I wasn’t a big movie watcher in the past so you may have already heard of or seen these, as these aren’t new movies. 

So without further ado, let’s get right into it. I promise not to include any spoilers for those who haven’t seen any of these and wanna check it out.

GREENER GRASS

Release date: October 18, 2019

Running time: 100 minutes

The film had its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, as a shorter film, but was then released as a longer movie in theaters.( You can watch the original short Sundance version here.)

Very Brief Summary:

Ummm….this film is very hard to explain. Long story short: everyone wears braces in this small town, a woman gives away her baby on impulse to her friend, but then regrets it and her friend refuses to give the baby back, and a boy turns into a dog.

 


DOWNSIZING

Release date: December 22, 2017 

Running Time: 2h 15m

Very Brief Summary:

Imagine if you didnt have to work anymore and live a life of luxury. Only catch: being shrunken (think Honey, I shrunk the Kids but not as small as they were in that movie.) I’m pretty sure many of us would sign up. 

Well a married couple with financial problems decide to sign up to be small, but find out the downsides to being small. One more thing: The procedure is permanent.

 


THE CLEANSE

Release date: May 4, 2018 

Running Time: 1h 21m

Very Brief Summary:

Weird movie about a guy who joins a retreat because a woman he likes joined. Some weird stuff happens, such as all the retreaters vomiting up gremlin/furby-looking things. The creatures aren’t harmful and everyone kinda gets attached to them, until they start to get bigger. Someone dies in the movie but I won’t say who.

 


Let me know in the comments below if you’ve ever watched any of these bizarre movies or/and if you have any others I should check out.
