The Psych Writer: What Next?

Since we took a break for a few weeks from The Psych Writer after a seven-part series on grief, I’ve noticed that TPW is actually pretty popular. So because I love the subject, and I love to write, and I love to have people read, I was thinking of reaching out to all of you by opening up comments.

What kinds of things would you like to read about next, in the context of writing/creating a convincing character with a mental health issue? There are so many I can write about, including the ones I find are most misunderstood and abused by laypeople who watch far too much television and think that Sherlock Holmes is actually a psychopath (WRONG!) because the writers are ableist twats.

I’ll open the comments up to you, or you can comment via Facebook or Twitter.

What would you like to see next for TPW? Below are a few choices, but you’re welcome to come up with your own.

  • PTSD
  • Major Depressive Disorder and Dysthymic Disorder
  • Bipolar I, II, and Cyclothymic Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Dissociative Identity Disorder
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • OCD and OCPD

Now I’ll probably work on all of these and more, but I’m reaching out to you, my fine and beautiful reader, for what you’d like to see next.

In the meantime, happy writing, and try not to tear up my inbox too much. *wink*


While I was doing all of this, I was getting a book ready for publishing. If you’re up for a journey through Perdition and back, hop in your car and head for the sign that says Now Entering Silver Hollow. It’s available on several eBook platforms, and in print through CreateSpace and Amazon.
