For some reason right at this exact moment I began thinking about death. I know it sounds odd, but for a novelist it’s pretty normal to just suddenly begin thinking about odd things out of the blue. It’s not until you start saying this stuff out loud that people think you’re crazy.
So I decided to blog about it. Not about death specifically, but a major life change in which evokes a sense of grief or longing, perhaps a loss of any sort. A person, a pet, a friend, even emotions such as love.
I’ve had my characters go through situations of which involve a sense of grief, perhaps none more than the man who lost the love of his life, because I don’t think I could write something like that again for awhile, but on smaller scales.
It’s hard to write emotional scenes without genuinely feeling whatever you are trying to express on paper (or Microsoft Word, lol). Sometimes I use music to help with that, but I usually end up bringing up some kind of emotion that was already there. So I have to wonder why I’m so intent on writing this scene today.
I don’t know. It’s not useless to figure out why, but I think I may just go with it instead, and just buy myself some chocolate to cheer up when I’m done writing 😉
