I'm toying with the idea of signing up for [community profile] scifibigbang with original fic just to push myself into writing regularly again, but at the same time I'm also toying with trying to gather up an online SF/F writer's group that has an eye towards inclusivity in the genre. Not sure how or if I could bring such a thing into existence because the fail brain has been made of failing brain lately.

The thing about depression/anxiety is that just when you think you might have a handle on it, it comes back and lets you know that you've only just begun to fight. It's like when you think it's 4:30 and almost time to go home on Friday and then you look and it's only 1:15.

Thus, lately, writing has all but ground to a halt and I'm not sure how to restart. My brain is filled with notions that it isn't worth it, all my writing is crap, no idea will ever be remotely original or even worth the time it takes to type out the words, I can't do it, it's too hard, etc, etc, etc.

Also, anxiety and depression are like kryptonite to my ability to focus and pay attention which were never that great to begin with.

Anyway, anyone interested in an inclusivity-centric SF/F writer's group online or just trading things to critique? My creative brain may be for shit, but my editing brain is still functioning fine.
