EMOTION IN WRITING Online Workshop…
Understanding this very complex element of fiction writing is difficult, at best. It seems on the surface to be so easy. Any writer can give a character emotions, right? Well, on a light surface level, maybe, but just below that surface is one of the most powerful tools a writer has in his or her craft toolbox.
Emotion makes characters come alive and readers care about the character and thus stay in your story.
Emotion gives characters a past.
There are many ways to add emotion into stories. Some work, some do not. And not all emotion is making a reader cry. Humor is a form of emotion. So is something simple (when done correctly) as hunger.
Emotion adds depth to a character, which I suppose this workshop could be called Character Depth. A character, without emotion, has no depth.
This workshop is designed to help you see when emotion is present in a story and learn how to put it in. There are five major ways to add emotion in a story and a hundred minor ways. We will cover the five and try to get to as many of the minor ones as possible in these six weeks.
Presented in a similar fashion as the Depth Workshop, you must have taken the Depth Workshop to take this class.
