How do you write a difficult emotion? Why is that emotion difficult for you?
Here’s my reply:
The emotion I dislike writing about most, is grief. Getting inside the head of a character is the only way I know of conveying emotions when I’m writing. But I find it upsetting to try to get into the mindset of a character who is experiencing tragedy.
Mostly, what I write is upbeat and my current work in progress is a light-hearted and absurd story about garden gnomes and elves where there are a range of emotions but so far, no grief.
