Writing Style?

I realized... one of the things I subconsciously strive for in writing is to make extremely insane and upsetting situations feel calm, peaceful, and natural.

This seems to be the opposite of many writers, who make everyday situations into something emotional for the reader.

Dear Brain: You're doing it wrong!

  1. Can I make that into an icon? (Dear Brain: You're doing it wrong!)

    And it's not wrong. I actually think that could be even more frightening to read, if you know it's supposed to be tense and upsetting, and nothing's there to give that impression.
