Has this ever happened to YOU?

Post  Amanda on Tue Oct 11, 2011 8:18 pm

We needed a new topic! lol, sorry about the cheesy title, recalling infomercials for Shamwow & other such products. XD

ANYWAY. I have an announcement to make. I wrote a short story(another one, not the one in Writing Feedback, lol), and it made me tear up. Renee' read it, and she teared up. I depressed myself with my own writing, there's this sad heaviness in my chest over something I made up, just 550 words long.

This has NEVER happened before. Never have I felt such melancholy(read: meh-LAHN-coh-lee XD) over anything I've ever written, ever. It rivals that time I dreamt I had superspeed, and within the dream, I never got to use my superpower, because I found out it was gone right when I was trying to show someone I had it.(That was UBER depressing. Crying or Very sad) I DON'T UNDERSTAND. What are these things you call emotions?!? Rolling Eyes

*ahem* So, has this ever happened to YOU? Very Happy

Wow! Haha.

YES! It's sooo happened to me. And I felt so stupid every time. O_O I wrote a super-emotional series of short "clips" of this character's life. There was actually more than one character. It wasn't a story, it was more a history. And sometimes, I would just sit and read it and cry. Razz The dramatic music I played may or may not have been fuel to the fire.

However, of MY work, that's the only thing I remember crying whilst writing/reading. And it's mostly because it was about something I'm super passionate about, which is depressed, suicidal, and emo teens. So it was touching on that place in my heart, too, which is probably mostly why I cried. *dork*

Yay! I'm not alone! Razz And I totally get that. I think I teared up because I was writing about unrequited love, which is about one of the saddest things, in my book. That, and when two people love each other passionately but can't be together.(a la the movie Becoming Jane. I just about died of depression. But then I watched X-Men First Class and felt a teensy bit better. Wink) It definitely hits home when you write about the things you care about deeply. Crying or Very sad

Yeah! It totally does! I remember the first thing I actually cried tears at in a book (not mine...) was when the author killed off two lovers just DAYS before their wedding. They were soooo happy and youthful and so deeply in love. At least she was kind enough to kill both (rather than leave one alone in the world) but it still crushed me. Sad

I... haven't. I mean, I'll feel strongly about things I write, but I usually snap out of it when I've left my writing verse and returned to the one we live in. (I refuse to say real. Mine is real too, as far as I am concerned.)
But then, I try to stay away from super depressing. That or I just don't capture the emotion rig––WAIT. I DID cry. When I was writing Gumiho, I totally spilled tears when I killed someone off... How did I forget that?! Oh, wait. It's me I'm talking about here. Never mind, I know now. Razz
