Emotions and writing – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (Emote)


Emotions help make us who we are, make us human. That is why they are important in writing. They help the reader connect with the characters. A good writer can make the reader feel what the characters are feeling, make them relate and care about the character. The trick is to convey those feelings with words. So word choice is an important tool in the author’s arsenal. That is one reason why a good author should also read a lot, not only can they learn and incorporate from other authors’  styles, but also build their vocabulary.

  1. I believe I’ve learned more from reading fiction–good fiction–than from any number of articles and courses I’ve taken. It’s imperative for any writer to read.
    Thanks for adding your SoCS post, Jeanne. It wasn’t really rambling at all. 😀

  2. Thanks! Glad you didn’t think it was rambling. It felt like it did to me, since I’ve had a rather busy afternoon and I wasn’t sure I was focused enough.
