Emotional Connection

Kiera Knightly I’ve been going over edits for a couple of projects and one of them was terrible. I wrote it months ago and sent it to a friend for her input and I never heard back from her about it. I picked it up to go over it and I realized that it was missing something. It took me awhile to realize that it was missing basic human connection. The character wasn’t quite human, but there wasn’t much emotion that people could connect to. That’s what determines what we like and dislike, right? If I emotionally connect to a character or story then I’m more likely to like it.
The story I wrote was pompous and unemotional, and that’s being very generous. It has a couple good ideas in it, but I’ll have to start from scratch. That’s okay. Every story I write improves my writing a little more and I need all the help I can get in that area. I’m learning that there’s a lot of trial and error in writing.
