Wordless Wednesday: Sadness

I’m sad.

Because I don’t know what to do with this post.

And it’s suppose to be wordless and how do you describe an emotion using pictures when you’re -ahem- a writer?

I expect many blogs today are going to have Google images like the following:

Sadness from Inside Out
Oh look. Sad Doctor Who.
Or the now outdated “no Oscar, sad Leo” meme.

Or maybe we go current even sad. Or history sad. Neither of which I am going to post pictures of.

And to be honest, I’m probably not going to read any of the following blogs. Just because I don’t want to start my day on Wednesday looking at sad things.

It’s okay to feel sad, it’s okay to write about sadness, and even my manuscripts have a shit ton of it. Every character has their dark moment.

The complete feeling of helplessness.

But to dwell on it is very annoying.

To follow the “if it bleeds, it leads” journalism mentality and write only about the most depressing and unfortunate with no more closure than driving pass an accident on the highway. What’s the point?

Sadness when given more attention than it deserves is boring.

And very uninteresting.

So for a very wordy, wordless post about sadness. Don’t write about sadness. Address it as an emotion.

Sadness is not, and should never be, a story.
