Writing and Anger

When I wrote “Keeping Her in the Light”, I was in a state of confusion, followed by a state of anger.  It was either self-destruct or do something useful with that powerful yet dangerous anger. The result of my decision was “Keeping Her in the Light.” Just like the darkness Hector speaks of, anger can be bent too into something that won’t hurt us. I’ve done push ups and sit ups when frustrated, because of the restless energy. It’s like converting that energy into something more useful–something productive. Some would tell us not to do anything when angry or else we might do something we’ll regret later on. With writing, it can be similar, but if you can mask that anger through analogies and allegories, why not vent through writing, through dialogue, through characters, through a story?
