A thing I've noticed about being depressed: every task takes more time to do. I move slower, think slower, get lost in self-berating tangents about how I screwed such-and-such up and I won't have time to finish it, and wind up having even less time to finish. Time-wise, there's pretty much no way for me to keep writing stories right now without giving up reading, which I enjoy more. Is there any value in making the sacrifice? And is there anything I should be doing to keep practicing or keep focused, even if I'm not writing stories?
