Negatives Are Positive

It's come that time again. The day that I, instead of burdening you with a lot of words and thoughts and ideas that may sound good but are likely meaningless, try to just post one simple thought, or sometimes question, and leave it at that. Today's is something I realized about writing recently, but I think it applies to most art. You will create strong art when it is focused on something you have strong negative feelings about.

That's probably not the most poetic way to word it, but here's what I mean. Whatever you hate, whatever scares you, whatever you can't stand, make something about that. You don't have to go through the trouble of piecing together what it is you feel about it.
