Are You A Moody Writer?

Judy Moody by Megan McDonald

Linda S. Clare, author of The Fence My Father Built, writes:
If you’re moody and you know it, clap your hands.
I know I tend toward brooding and depression, so it’s important for me to recognize when “writing through the pain” is the answer and when a time-out is necessary. They say writers must develop a thick skin but I think it’s more about managing the skin you have. Why deny what you feel? Instead, learn to recognize the ups, downs and sideways motions that a sensitive, perceptive and intuitive writer needs.
