Mood in life, mood in writing

In the remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the candies that Willy Wonka makes have a flavor that reflects his mood.

This little bit of magic is perfectly implemented in the literary efforts in the real world. I don't think I could write something authentically cheerful if I tried.

If I do manage to get any of these pieces completed, they will all come out so bleakly depressing that they won't even make for good horror.
