I would like your help,assistance,advice,and guidance. For a few months now, I've been brainstorming ideas for a short story/novel/column,that I want to obviously write.

Initially it was going to be about suicide:at the time this was my strongest emotion.
Since then I've been happier than I can recall and love every second of my life and those lives in it.
I was going to abandon the few things I had written and all ideas regarding it.
I've read blogs lately and noticed more depressed people than I thought there was here.

To allude for a second:It's like seeing the car your drive all the time on the road;it's your car so of course it's noticed the most.

Since I want to see how many depressed people there are here,I'm finding them.

I don't know what I'm asking for really,but any ideas or stories you want to share would be great.

So did you write your article or story?  About suicide or depression?  I'd love to read an atheist's views on suicide. 

I have a manuscript I wrote about my son's death and life.  I'd really like to get someone to read and comment on it, and perhaps make suggestions.  Unfortunately, it's book length.  If interested, please let me know.  I'll follow this blog and hope to get in contact with other atheist writers.

I agree entirely. If you found a road out of your depression - find a way to chronicle it. Leave bread crumbs for people. Your story should move from your intimacy with depression (so they know you relate to how they feel on an authentic level) to your discovery of the escape hatch (point a way out.)

Wish I could give you stronger guidance, but what i can say with confidence is, keep what you wrote during those times of depression, during those times of suicidal tendencies. If they are not causing your creative juices to flow right now, they probably will later. The old cliche " life is a journey" seems to to be a truism the longer I live. I wish I would have caught on to it sooner. Your statement at the top of the page i think nails a truth!
This material may be very helpful to you later on in your creative life.

Maybe a metaphor for your journey from suicidal feelings to the joy you've been feeling lately?
