WRITING UNDER THE INFLUENCE

This post is part of the monthly blog hop/therapy session known as the
Insecure Writers Support Group, founded by the one and only, Alex J. Cavanaugh. If you're a writer, insecure, or just supportive of writers—insecure or not—please join us. It happens the first Wednesday of each month.It would be sweet of you to visit at least a dozen or so new blogs and leave a comment. Your words will be appreciated.

OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?

Has life events affect my writing?
BIG TIME!
My genre of choice used to be horror, supernatural thriller.
When I fell in love again after decades of a difficult marriage...
I wrote humorous women’s fiction...
Based on my newfound happiness.
Why humourous you ask?
Trust me...
When you’re 24 years older than the guy...
Ya gotta have a sense of humor.
When death took him after just a few years...
My writing went dark...
Not like the genre...
But rather the military definition:
Termination of communication.
My writing basically went bye-bye for several years.
Having moved here to be with "him"...
"Him" being a Mexican national.
I chose to stay in Mexico
Learning the language (some)...
Learning the ins and outs of the culture...
And I survived...
So did my creativity.
I am writing again...
Revamping an existing manuscript...
Soon to publish...
And am writing humorous women’s fiction again.
So?
What about you?
Do life events affect your writing?

Always,
Em-Musing
