is emotion and it is something that I seem to be overflowing with. I can’t control it but I don’t think that anyone can successfully control it either. It turns me into a puddle of mush. So I retreat back to my college days. Emotionally I seemed to be the strongest. Nothing could touch my emotions.
We partied hard, studied, drank and danced to Billy Idol, Def Leopard, and the other hair bands of the 80’s. There was a group of us in which we gave ourselves the nickname; the Wierds. I loved that time period but would I want to go back and repeat it. Emotionally my answer is no; I don’t think that I could handle it.
Emotion is fundamental to writing, but I find myself living my characters as if they are without emotion. I think that the question that I am asking how do I put emotion into my characters? I do not want them to be ice cold; without feelings. I struggle with this daily and I still emotionally have not figured out an answer. Do you have the answer?
