15. Ever written romance or Angsty teen drama?

I have not. I had ideas for some, but I never got around to do them (Though Brady's tale was almost angsty teen drama haha!). I don't feel good writing these unless something greater is taking place. I like to go into complex characters and relationships and drama. Angst is somewhat petty from a mainstream perspective and I don't want to settle into something we always see.

I haven't found my voice to express my own angst quite well yet or my perspective on the unique, complex, and undocumented side of teenagehood. Though if my characters are undergoing similar things I undergo in life I will have trouble letting go of the petty and abandoning myself to what truth is to me.
