Finding Emotion: Then and Now

Then: about 20 years ago

Spotted a nice, quiet nook at my local library today.  Plan to keep it in mind as a possible creative escape spot for myself.

Great article in the new Writers Digest about putting emotion into your writing. Lots of good tips including writing your heart out in the initial draft and then going back and doing editing and polishing.

I need to keep this in mind as I have the tendency to dwell on making each page “perfect” before continuing on.

“If there are no tears in the writer, there will be no tears in the reader.”

 

Now

No longer a spot in the library.  Or even currently a coffee shop.  Just quiet writing place at home.

But life has dealt a lot of blows so connecting with emotion comes more easily.
