Of dramatic endings and insomnia

I have been told I like rounding up my write-ups with a nice dose of tragedy.

It is 3 in morning and I am all geared up for an investigation into the darkest recesses of my blog archives (read: lot of exaggeration).

2009 – One suicide bomber (read: death),  children sold by a wretched father, a child murdering his parents for attention, a murderous clown, riots and bloodshed inspired by them, one died a gruesome death from cancer.

2010 – A child who overdosed on knowledge and ended up in an asylum, more memories about riots, life in a war zone, a father dropping his newborn baby from the top of a roof.

2011 – This year’s write-ups surprisingly have no horrible endings.

2012 – There are deaths, yes – but not so dramatic.

So, have I become mellower with time?

Or is it just that the drama of a shuddersome end doesn’t appeal to me any more?

I just hope it is the latter.

I like to believe I’m a cheerful person.

… or you know, maybe, I took this learning lesson to heart and hence, filtered out all the drama (found this while I was googling for an image for this post):

      You were the one who told me I always end morbidly 😉
      And good point. But I don’t think writing cheerful stuff would make me happy. Just writing is enough 🙂

    You should write whatever you are comfortable with, regardless of how morbid and dark it is. Who cares if you’re cheerful or not? Unless of course, you really like this change.

    • Anas Shafqat says:

      True that. I still do write dark stuff – but, this post is just an observation as to how my writing style has changed. That it has become tamer with time.
