Writing about you

5 02 2013

I realized this a while back, but I write a lot of sad things, and rarely do I ever write something positive.  For example, I haven’t written a song about any of my friends who I’ve known since high school (with the exception of one, but it was because she was going through some difficult stuff that I wanted to write and dedicate a song to/for her), but I’ve written a song about people who haven’t even been in my life (“Tag”).  I’m looking over my creative non-fiction material because I think that’s my strongest genre of writing, and almost all of it is sad, melancholic stuff.

The moral of the story: if you want me to write about you, break my heart.  Make me sad.  Anger me.  Treat me like shit.  And you’ll live on in my work.
