Creative Writing Saves Your Brain--and Your Life

In 2012, a brain injury took away my ability to speak, read, and (almost) write. Oddly enough, the way I came back from all that was by writing a book: Mermaid Moon.

And here's the story of how it happened ...

Your creative work really can save you.

Susann Cokal, The Kingdom of Little Wounds

“Fate refuses to stop at the pretty part of the tale; Fate insists on more tests of courage and wit, a terrible end, even if the heroine's heart be pure and her crime accidental.”
Susann Cokal, The Kingdom of Little Wounds

“In the darkness, fear my light.”
Susann Cokal, The Kingdom of Little Wounds

“Fate refuses to stop at the pretty part of the tale; Fate insists on more tests of courage and wit, a terrible end, even if the heroine's heart be pure and her crime accidental.”

“Après moi, le dénouement.”
Gregory Wealtherford

“Crying makes me know I'm still real and still alive.”
Gigi Amateau, Claiming Georgia Tate

“Am I in love? --yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn't wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover's fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.”
Roland Barthes, A Lover's Discourse: Fragments
