So. I've always thought that what I wrote was a little... fluffy. Mostly the bright side of the fiction barrel. Anything dark and twisty in my writing must be an abberation, or at the very least the result of something in my life. Right? Right!
I am basically a
"Look on the bright side" kind of person. I've been called Pollyanna
while at work. But as I've told my boss, just because I'm cheerful or
putting a positive spin on something does not mean that I'm living in
lala land. Oh no.
I don't like to share dark
and twisty Wyn so much. When I do, it is perversely more personal than
any bright and happy story I could ever share. Dark and twisty is where
the artist in me has created her lair... She hides in there sometimes,
waiting, watching. Others, she comes roaring out spinning webs of
darkness and beauty wherever she might go.
Because that's what I
really like. I don't like horror. Not anymore. Grew out of most of it
rather quickly. But if you can spin me a web of darkness and beauty, oh.
write the two different types of stories differently, too. Happy, funny
stories I write in discovery mode-- finding out what's gonna happen
next. It's great, it's fun for me as a writer. The other comes out of my
brain fully crystalized and it's a marathon to get it out. And get it
So.. I guess what I'm saying is this:
I might have a split personality.
But that's ok. We're all doing just fine in here :)
Do you have any story abberations? Or stick to one style/type?
