Daily Quote


Anyone who tries to tell you writing isn’t work hasn’t attempted it. Creating ideas, characters, plot lines, outlines are demanding tasks. Writing about emotions is a visceral experience for me. When my characters bleed, I bleed. When they suffer depression or anger or frustration, the emotions live in me. I try to space emotionally packed scenes over the course of a few days, but often find I end up writing them in one sitting.

I like to think the intense emotions I feel as I write are magically imbued into the words and released when the reader experiences them for the first time.

How do you handle heavy emotions in your writing?


Keep on writing.
