    Well, cats seem to be the subject of the day. You hear a "Meow! Meow!" You look at the source of the sound and you see a kitten. What happens next?

    I don't know what's strange about it. You see a kitten. Has it been abandoned? Is it hungry? What do you do?

    You have to use your imagination.

    If you would like to write a sad story, be sure to place your characters in sad or emotional situations, or be sure to emphasize the fact that things here are in fact sad.

    You need to work on achieving clarity. (The writer (we hope) always knows what he means to way, but the reader can only be sure of understanding the writer if the writer uses clear language.)

    If you want to write a sad story, here are a few possibilities:
    A beloved pet has died.
    Your wife died.
    Your mother died.
    Your best friend died.
    Your best friend lost his job and then was in an auto accident that left him crippled.
