      I don’t think there’s a choice. We don’t lead quiet, blameless lives engaged in useful, financially rewarding work, married to the love of our lives and die a peaceful death surrounded by a devoted family who go on to lead quiet, blameless lives…Stuff happens to all of us!

        To put it mildly!

    why do plots have to be tragic? there’s enough misery in the world, I prefer to write feelgood stories.

      Ah, but the resolution of a tragic plot can be a happy ending. There’s nothing more feelgood than that!
