About Christopher Griffith

I’m interested in writing – I’m not a writer who chose to be one, rather the vocation pressed down on my shoulders at exactly the time I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I had always been academic at school, and I continued to study critically at university, but with the onset of mental illness I somehow became embued with a creative faculty also. I want to know what drives me to write because I have a real love/hate relationship with it – I can’t stand starting a project and I’m in constant pain during it, but once I’ve finished I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I can’t be the only writer who wasn’t called to the craft – let me know if any of the above mentioned resonates with you, or indeed if you are a born not made writer do please contact me also to help me negotiate this most tricky of professions.
