Yesterdays blog, on Everything happens for a reason is a wonderful post but let us continue from there.

I loved being able to recount to you about the first meeting with my wife and how much it meant and still means to me.  I got the pleasure of relating that to her after I wrote it and it is still a tender moment for us and we treasure it.

This kind of emotion is important for us to be able to feel as writers, Dear Writers, since we convey emotion through our writing and expressions to our readers.

Today your homework is to write like you mean it.  Write like your life depends on it.  Write and be charged emotionally, so much so, that that emotion can be felt while others read it.

Pick a time, place or incident when you were emotionally charged and write about it.  Get those feelings out.

In my writer's club we share our children's picture book stories and they are fun and interesting to see what others think of your stories.  Make sure you are not so involved in your stories that it is all about your feelings; it is your characters feelings that you put your emotions into to tell the story.

That is the emotion you must put into your stories, but at a safe enough distance that you are telling the story and not reliving it for yourself since you will feel it but the reader will not.

Keep your story arc, keep the tension and solve the issues of your characters and their limitations without having clouded eyes. After writing it read it out loud and reread it, again and again.  This is to eliminate errors and those faulty I know what I am saying moments but I am not conveying moments.  I have done this repeatedly.  Sometimes I have to take some time away from that one story and work on another to distance myself.

Once I have the proper distance then I reread, out loud, the first story and can find things that could have been said better and so I do not jump skip over a part simply because I know what I mean but have not conveyed that total meaning to others.

Get others to read your story.  Hey, how about me?  I am here and ready to listen.

I will give you honest feedback without criticism since I am your advocate and am not trying to find fault with you or your story or build myself up at your expense.  You will experience a good feeling about our partnership, I guarantee it.
