Emotions and writing
Just wondered if any writers here channel any real-life emotions into their writing and if anyone finds it a useful thing to do?
Had a bit of an emotional year but that's not the real me as I am normally very upbeat so am wondering if doing something positive like writing out my feelings might help.
When I write fiction the emotions are always pretend ones - I try to think how the person might feel in the given situation. I've never actually thought to use how I'm feeling in my writing.
Just a thought and interested in other opinions. I also could do with a distraction!
