It was absolutely heartbreaking.
I considered skipping ahead to New Year's Eve - which turns out to be a much better day for my cherished character - but I decided instead to slog my way through the misery, make an effort to get in touch with the feelings I was experiencing and use them in my work. In the end, I think that was the right thing to do; it was cathartic to really feel my feelings - as opposed to burying them, like I usually do - and there is no doubt that my writing is richer as a result.
