I continue to struggle with Mischa’s tale, and as before, I wonder about whether writing this is proper, if it’s moral.
I’ve written before of my concerns that this sort of story, involving revenge, torment and loss, does nothing to alleviate the suffering of the world. Now I wonder if in an infinitesimal way, it would add to it. I have scenes of torture planned, and two are written. There is more than enough evil in the world; why create more?
However, the tale contains forgiveness and redemption, remembering friendship, and turning away from evil. Those are needed!
So I am conflicted — write this or not?
(Not much of an update, I know. I apologize.)
