  1. Yup, emotions are essential in writing.
    I believe the core of all stories is conflict, and you can’t have conflict without stirring up emotions, in characters, in readers, and in yourself. Emotions are hard to get right, and require a good understanding of how people function and especially why they function. I find this the most fascinating thing about writing fiction in general — exploring the human mind, when thrust against hardship. 🙂

    • That’s an important thing I forgot to mention and I’m glad you said it. One should observe human beings and watch what they do and try to figure out why they do it. That’s also important for veracity and for authenticity. So go people watching! Sit at a cafe somewhere with a pith hat and a pair of binoculars and start taking notes. Thank for leaving a comment.
