This article isn't about Zoloft--it's about depression. Perhaps this isn't the most upbeat topic to end the A-Z Challenge with, but depression is a very real issue in general, and it can also affect some writers.
Did you know that according to health.com writing falls into a group of ten careers with the highest rates of depression? As writers we have to be troopers because the rejection rate is high, and in addition, the isolation of writing can contribute to depression as well.
I'm not going to go into a big speech here on the subject because there is a well-written article about the topic at Romance and Beyond. I encourage you to read it if you, or another writing buddy of yours may experience depression.
And remember there is always hope. Depression can be defeated, and one rejection or a thousand rejections doesn't make you any less of a writer! It only means you're determined.
