Writing is often related to how you feel about yourself, and the world around you.
For some reason, I write best in dark moods. The work is usually pretty dark too, except perhaps a few of my poems. I have been told time and time again that embracing positivity, comedy, good cheer is the way to happiness and success. But my fingers wish otherwise. And ever since I have taken up speed-writing, my fingers actually do most of the work. This can lead to some pretty good stuff, but in my case, also to some pretty gory stuff!
