Writing On The Dark Side
I’m happy to say I made a breakthrough tonight. I actually completed 850 new words. I haven’t done that in months. I’ve deleted a lot recently, but had not been able to add much.
What’s interesting to note is how my story has taken on a way different tone than I started. It’s become rather disturbing, but for some reason, it seems to work. The problem is, the beginning of the story is a bit lighter, with humor and a love interest. So I’m afraid, I’ll have to go back and make the tone a little darker.
How do you add humor into a dark tale without it sounding fake?
