Emotional Induced Writing


Have you ever written something that was entirely out of a certain emotion? I have done that so many times and I am sure that I am not alone in this. The question is what do you do with it once it’s been written? Most of the time, my emotional induced writing just sits wherever I wrote it (on my laptop or in a notebook or on random pieces of paper) and I rarely ever look at it again. I looked at one of the pieces of writing I did that was heavily influenced by the emotions I was feeling at the time…I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. There are some parts that I liked and think would be good for something, but there are others where I don’t want that to ever see the light of day again. It’s not that it’s bad. It’s just not the kind of writing I want in a publication.

What do you do with your emotional writing?

I remember there being a quote that was talking about tears in the writer. I just looked it up. It’s by Robert Frost and he said…

No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.

So maybe these moments of emotional induced writing are beneficial, even though I don’t really view them that way.

Until next time… Kara
