I began a new story today, and the topic is actually pretty depressing. The idea came to me from the influence of other media involving relationships between parents and their children. I decided to write a story on the relationship between a mother and daughter.
I began writing the first chapter and already had tears coming to my eyes. This is my first experience writing something this sad. I’ve written dramatic pieces before where there were twists and turns, but this is my first actual attempt to write something a little more specific and tragic.
Have any other writers experienced this same moment while writing something sad that you felt was necessary for the plot development?
