Putting emotions in your writing
As I type this I have been pondering the above title. How do you put emotion in your writing? How do you get your character to show emotion? How do you convince your reader to identify with your character without going overboard? Where is that overboard line? How do you write something painful or sad that you don't want to experience yourself? How do you make good writing great by adding emotions?
What are your thoughts? How do you as a writer add emotion? What do you as a reader expect in a book?
My mind is churning, I hope to learn as much as I can and get back to you guys.
