Writers like to think communication is mostly through dialogue. But what’s NOT said is most important. Emotions lie at the core of every character’s actions, choices and words — all of which drive the story. What would a story be without emotions? We’ll discuss various emotions and highlight the physical signs, internal sensations, mental reactions and how to incorporate them into your writing. I’ll talk about adding emotion to every character and every scene. Along the way, you’ll be introduced to a few writers’ tips, such as not being afraid to challenge your character’s morals and putting them in situations that are outside their comfort zone. Make them squirm, and the reader will, too.
