Writing -- Emotional Cost

Heart Fate opens with a couple of wrenching scenes, then goes on to only slightly lighter scenes. I've been putting the revision of the first two scenes off, because they CAN hurt when I write them.

I did a lot of writing yesterday -- additional wrenching scenes, and felt as wrung out as the characters.

So I guess I'm saying that if you believe in your characters, when you write scenes that hurt them, you can pay an emotional and creative cost, too. I believe, of course, that it's worth it, but know that you will pay.

May humor grace your writing today.
