Angst

I write angst. I can't help it. I know all my stories, my fanfic and my original fic are full of angsty plots and real-life dramas. Maybe a bit melodramatic, maybe not. I write real life with elements of comedy. I'm not bitching or complaining... it's just what I do. I can't write horror, mystery or scifi or fantasy.

Someday, I'd love to write a historical drama (it will have angst since part of it will be set during the Spanish Inquisition, but that's a bit challenge yet to come.)

Anyway, it seems like the Goo Goo Dolls are my writing soundtrack for my two latest stories. Isabel is packing up her house to move to Europe and is listening to this song on repeat:

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'Cause she's got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go
'Cause the world got in her way
What's the point in ever trying
Nothing's changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you're falling anyway

And you know I see right through you
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screamin'
You're not listening anyway


She tells her brother that it reminds her of their mother. He tells her that he wishes she wasn't so damn angsty at times. I'm reworking the relationship between Isabel and her dad, David. At first, I had them have a huge blow out and stop speaking, but it's not necessarily what I want to do. I just don't know how I'll work it out. I suppose I'll get there and figure it out.
