For the first half of February, everything we consume seems to be about love and happiness.

But of course, life isn't always bouquets of flowers and warm embraces — and literature should (and does) reflect that.

We have a couple of posts along those lines to share from our favorite writing blogs.

Two of them focus on how the writer can address tough topics in a way that's safe for them.

Samantha Greene Woodruff, author of The Lobotomist's Wife, discusses how to write about a dark topic without making it grotesque at Writer's Digest.

Over at Jane Friedman's blog, editor and writer Lisa Cooper Ellison lists three things to ask yourself before writing about trauma, based on her own experience tackling it.

And finally, Writer's Digest also has a post on how to share tough topics in a safe way for children.
