Tip of the Day: Use your emotions in your writing

Life happens around us, sometimes faster than we can keep up. Tragedy is always waiting around the corner, preparing to pounce when we least expect it. Take note of your emotions and the sensations that you’re experiencing as a result of that tragedy. Use it in your writing. Pour everything you are into that small snippet of story. You will be drained as a result, but you won’t regret it. While the narrative might need to be edited, the emotions will leap off the page to assault the reader. They will follow your journey with you, and maybe join you in your pain.
