My Mission Statement
Welcome to the blog of The Bipolar Writer.
This blog is multifunctional. I will use it to advertise my brand, the types of literary works that I am writing as J.E. Skye, and of course my blog that chronicles my experiences with Bipolar One disorder.
I write young adult & adult fiction in novels and screenplays. I write mostly within the romance and drama genres (think The Fault in Our Stars.) I’m also writing a non-fiction memoir.
My goals are simple. I want to use this blog to help people because of this fact:
“Half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14; three-quarters by age 24. Despite effective treatment, there are long delays—sometimes decades—between the first appearance of symptoms and when people get help.” (Source: National Alliance on Mental Health)
In sharing my own experiences and my writing, if I can help just one person, then it makes it worth it to write my content. When I first struggled with depression and suicide I was just about fourteen. I never really knew what was wrong with me.
I really look forward to connecting with real people in my work. More about me in the “About” section of my blog.
Please Help me Publish my Memoir
I have finished the first draft of my memoir “The Bipolar Writer” and I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. If you can donate anything towards my goal, it would mean the world to me. Those that donate will get a special mention in my memoir on a page dedicated to those that made my memoir possible. Thank you in advance!
