My current project is basically "everyone mc knows dies one by one as their life spirals out of control". I wouldn't call it angsty, everything happens for a reason and has an effect. It doesn't happen out of nowhere, in fact you can see it coming. But still, it's one bad event after another, and I'm fearing that I'll be suffocating the reader with nothing but negativity. I want to break up the sad bits with something a little more lighhearted in between, but I have no idea what. Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do to fix it?
