I’m a highly sensitive introvert. That includes a lot of characteristics including my ability to feel everything intensely. From a stranger’s pain to an animal’s fear – you name it, I can feel it. This aspect of me has helped me with my writing. Readers have often said that my books make it clear that I am high on empathy. I certainly value empathy in myself and others. And feelings are a part of my life, your life, and books. So I wanted to make a list today, of some feelings that are important in the world of books. These are driven by emotions that can make a reader cry, laugh, get angry, smile and even want to hug a character.
- Pity (and self-pity)
I am sure there are more, but these come up often. As a bookworm and an author, I can say that a good writer knows how to make you feel these feelings and emotions as you read every page. Right?
