comment What makes writing emotional?
@Martha: i think that is still telling. You're telling me you were greatly relieved. were you, really? how did that show? did you sit there thinking "well now that that's done, i am greatly relieved!" i tried making another edit.

@Corey: ah just my point. the problem isn't so much that you stop at 3, it's that you went past 1 in the first place! so all you have to do is less - not to say that's easy. be honest with yourself; write what you really think.

comment What makes writing emotional?
They sure can, intuitively. Give up the throne, or relinquish it? I am full of anger, or I am filled with ire? An array of characters, or a sequence of characters? I'm well aware of the fact, or I'm cognizant of the fact? A harbinger of doom, or an indicator of doom? A feeling or a sentiment? which ones sound more gut-wrenching to you? (Also: gut-wrenching, or visceral? =P).
