Writing about Being Sad

Writing is often related to how you feel about yourself, and the world around you.

For some reason, I write best in dark moods. The work is usually pretty dark too, except perhaps a few of my poems. I have been told time and time again that embracing positivity, comedy, good cheer is the way to happiness and success. But my fingers wish otherwise. And ever since I have taken up speed-writing, my fingers actually do most of the work. This can lead to some pretty good stuff, but in my case, also to some pretty gory stuff!

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !

    As Tyler would have said ‘We aren’t our stories’. There are lots of writers out there who write gory and unspeakable stuff, doesn’t mean that they are not happy souls or they are not positive.

    I read couple of your stories (gory ones) and I guess you are really good with them. So, let your fingers be, follow them!

    I know it seemed like a dark piece, but it was well written and not terribly gory. I didn’t think. Maybe the horror genre is calling you, Damyanti.

    Come to the dark side, Damyanti …
