Kickstarter for “The Journal of Absolute Misery” by Henderson’s Hugh Alan

HENDERSON, Ky. – Some days are just garbage. Henderson author and illustrator Hugh Alan Samples knows that as well as anyone.

Samples, a father of two and a suicide survivor, has struggled with bipolar disorder for most of his life and has had more than his share of bad days. That is the inspiration for his latest project, titled “The Journal of Absolute Misery,” which has been named a “Project We Love” by crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

Samples uses the pen name Hugh Alan in his writing and illustration work.

“‘The Journal of Absolute Misery’ is all about having a place to write about your worst days — the ones without unicorns or rainbows,” the Kickstarter page reads. “Journaling can be a powerful tool for catharsis and a way of dealing with negative emotions like fear, sadness, and anger.”
