My guest today is blogger Cathy Jean-Francois. She currently writes the blog "Cathy's Cross: a Depressive's Positive Perspective". She has written several other blogs in the past and is currently looking to get her first novel published. Cathy is early in her writing journey, but she's no stranger to the struggle with depression. In our conversation we talk about depression, teaching ELA to middle-schoolers, and writing - even while depressed.
I personally was very encouraged by my conversation with Cathy, and what I appreciate about her is that she is not letting her depression keep her from pursuing her dream and creating stories. You will find Cathy's journey an encouraging one. If you are currently struggling with depression, I hope this encourages you to talk about it openly and honestly with someone you trust, and that you will find a way to over come. Cathy and I both know that the journey is different for everyone, but the destination is worth it.
