Common beliefs can often be wrong…

Many writers can get periodically depressed—God forbid some doctor should prescribe anti-depressants—unless absolutely called for…

Not only writers get periodically depressed—our culture has many aspects that could depress anyone…

Some writers—some people—can’t rise above periodic depression—stay in the bottomless pit—fall prey to complete stagnation…

The holidays—mostly due to the incredible materialistic pressures they can exert—are a prime time for depressions.

I wrote a post last year that might help those with periodic (or terminal) depression—The Tortured Artist and A World Gone Mad . . .

    Depression is getting more and more recognized these days, especially since the death of Robin Williams, many people are realizing the severity. I don’t know that writers get more depressed than the average person, although writers tend to live very much in their heads and many write as a cathartic release I think that many artists ie: writers, musicians, actors tend to be a bit more emotional than the average person. An excellent post! :)
