I was trying to start a new short piece to write, but everything I think of is of the same type of emotion. Kind of. Everything I think of at least borders on being dark and slightly depressing. Now, I'm not a dark, depressing person. Actually, many people who know me find me quite bubbly. But I'm always drawn to the darker stories both when I write them and when I read them. I also have a tendency to write about things that I have never experienced. So, I guess my question is: Do you generally write about emotions or experiences that have experienced, or those that you haven't? Now, I know that what you write may not be exactly an experience that you have been through, or an experience that anyone can go through. But that doesn't mean there isn't something about it that is familiar. That's not really the point though. I guess the point is - if it wasn't clear enough the first time - do you have a tendency to stick to emotions, thoughts, and/or experiences that you know, or those that you don't?
