    I want to write a hub about the death of a friend. All of our friends have a story to tell about him and so do I. How do I go about it without offending anyone? I already know how I want to write it however I am reluctant.  It's something I have to write about since it is the reason I have had a difficult time getting back into my writing. It's like the big writers elephant in the room. It's something I need to express in writing form. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

    I understand about the touchy subject, I also am having the same problem on one of my stories that is why I am taking so long to finish it.

    My question is does one have to write the bad stuff about the person you are writing about? And really just how bad is it?

    Everyone has a dark side, is there a way to make your readers understand this dark side?

    I suggest that you write the story the way you want to write it. Then read it over and edit it. That's what I am doing with my story.
