writing emotionally

On the cusp of finishing my book about domestic violence, I wonder, how does emotion translate to powerful witting. My book is all about emotion and experience. But, after reading Sarah's post, I think that maybe I need to go back and see what I've done, and haven't done.

Any thoughts on this would be helpful.

Real Writers Need a Community: yes, that means you

I’ve always called myself a shy person. The anxiety I feel in social or professional situations is in no small part why I chose freelancing in the first place.

But still, what does one do with a dirt-covered gem? It was not an easy transition.

For several years I made…
