Is writing about sadness or the loss of a loved one tacky or insincere if you haven't experienced the exact circumstances you're writing about?

la mort de l'auteur

There are ways of understanding such experiences without experiencing them yourself
>>
Not necessarily, but probably.

Write about what you know.
>>
you can write from the experiences of your reading

it is only insincere to that which you are implying to have felt but not to that which you derived it from
>>
No. You should, however, be able to sublimate strong feelings from a different experience to your depiction in order to move your audience.

What do you remember about the powerful experience? Why? What kind of things make you remember it. What sensory details and/or objects are intertwined with your memory of this experience?

Once you've done this kind of self-analysis, you should be ready to imagine another experience and the details and circumstances around it.

It's also a good idea to speak with someone who has had the experience you want to write about, if it is possible.

"Ah, friend! How've you been?! I've been dying to know how awful you felt after the death of your wife!"
