But since I'm scheduling my post, I thought it would be interesting.
In my teenaged writing years, I went through a period of writing tragedy. In my suspense works, someone died. In my romance works, someone died. It got to a point that my cousin threatened to stop reading. I think she actually did, now that I think about it!
Now that I'm older, I do still lean towards darker, sadder tones, but I've tried to not kill any of my characters...for now.
As a writer, did any of you have a different theme than what you trend towards now?
