bi polar is not usually a condition that 'kills itself' drugs and alcohol have a high percentage hold of that one. people with bi polar usually ride out all of the above creatively and with tremendous resource. id leave suicide to rock stars with too much money for heroin o.ds and make room for a manic depressive with a shotgun pointed firmly from the hip at those who would misunderstand them ;) ive never heard of higher rates of suicide than within the rooms of NA and AA recovery...but yeh interesting article. 50% of 'successful' suicides are drawn out, painful and a result of substance misuse rather than mental illness..but of course the question remains, what is mental illness anyway? an what is suicide?... GUILT usually plays is part either real or percieved.guilt can destroy a person..is guilt a mental illness? you seem to be saying with that post that life is so difficult for the mentally ill that suicide is an easier option. which is kind of funny. life is complicated. suicide is not an easy option. good topic.

Incandescent are asking for submissions for their second edition chuck - think you should send something off to them. It's a book too, rather than a journal, on or offline.

Yeh, I used to capitalise every single line until probably only a few months ago tbh. Like you, didn't really think about it, til someone pointed it out, and then when you re-examine the lines, sometimes, it seems better to use lower-case if it is a follow-on from the preceding line, know what I mean? Now I've gone the other bloody way and tend not to capitalise anything!

HaHa - I usually do "come" indoors Kealan, apart from once on a beach, once on the top deck of a bus...erm... once in a bus shelter, a few times out walking - the oddest was probably once in the snug bar of an open pub = bit risky that one :)
Oh, and once in the visiting room of the psychiatric unit in Carlisle hospital (no - I'm not kidding, called The Glades, or something) :D (doggy style)

Hey fantastic!! :D Which one/s did Full of Crow accept? I'll have to have a look. Haha, they just rejected 5 of mine so have doggedly sent them another 5 :D

I was so excited I put mine on me biog on here heh. I got into Feathertale online, plus their actual book - a Best Of coming out early next year, with Biting The Bullet! I get a copy of the book for payment so still have to buy me own chips, like ;) I got into RedFez too,with Write for Revolution, and that's just online but it's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, innit?!

Waiting on bloody loads more - have got a few more links for you too, so will email them to you.

Nice one, well done - knew you'd get published!

Hi again - thanks for replying so soon

What do you think defines 'good' though? Or 'bad'? And who are you going to take that from - yourself, or others? And then...which others? Beware of deification! You have a powerful imagination and intellect - it's not about being better, or worse. It's about your words.

Have you tried writing within certain structures like, say, haiku, ghazal, the diamond stuff that Cynthia is playing with at the mo?

I know what you mean about certain styles being easier to write in. I find that a lot of mine end up being in a musical rhythm - trying to fight against it all the time but it falls out that way. I use haikus to break me out of it.

I think you need to be more courageous about your own work, to recognise if it FEELS good when you write and read it. All the ideas and imagery you're packing in at the moment - it's dense as fuck. You must surely see some merit in that?

Anyhow - keep on writing - not that you could do anything else, I'm sure ;)

Hi Kealan, dunno whether you're male or female. but you have some fantastic literary skills. I get the feeling you're quite passionate about your writing. and i guess that when you're in the zone you cannot get the words down quick enough. this to me shows real talent and you know I am feeling envious of you for the talent you have. just brilliant work Kealan and don't let yourself down by thinking that you're 'shit,' at it.

keep on, you got the gift.

best wishes

Hi Kealan, The chat facility usually works if you are very patient. A 'typing' sound effect will occur when you get a reply. The temptation is to think "oh the bloody thing isnt working" and click off or try to reconnect, don't just hang on in there if poss , its not ideal I know. Win (Admin)

no not too obvious at all. i could only tell -i'm thirty now- because i spent my early twenties incessantly reading his stuff and trying to ape his style. it was worthless though as his voice wasn't mine. his arrogance, sheer force i couldn't muster. he does encourage a freedom though, which you have. i like your writing, keep at it. you have the movement and suprising phrase which, as your style develops, will become your 'voice'
