Hello, everyone, I've been in a bad place lately and I've begun to realize that the novel I'm working on reflects me a little too much. I've put the MC into a similar position as mine--one in which he doesn't survive. A lot of the other characters also contain hints of me and my perceptions on life, too, and there isn't a happy ending. Consequently, I'm starting to feel that my writing is just a cesspool of my bitter emotions and negativity and I'm not sure if that's necessarily a good thing for me to write and for others to read. What do you think?
