A to Z Challenge 2015 Theme Reveal - Writing Emotions and Reactions



The A to Z Blogging Challenge starts soon (April 1st) and there are loads of folks already signed up, so it should be an interesting month! :) As part of the fun, I'm joining in the A to Z Theme Reveal Blog Hop, where we commit to our theme for the month!

And, so here goes!


Since I'm an author, I always pick a writing theme for my blog, and this year, I've chosen to write about emotions and reactions, those important things that hold a plot together. So, I'm going to discuss how I see different emotions and reactions, what they mean to me, and their uses in fiction, both written and TV/Film.

  4. Fun! I liked your posts last year, I'll definitely check these out too :) Most of my writing is emotion-, rather than plot-heavy, so I am sure these will be useful for me :)
    Cheers!

    1. I'm a bit of both, I can start with plot or emotion, but the two always come together eventually :) Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Wow, this sounds so interesting! I love to write too, and I totally understand the importance of emotions in a plot. Btw, I'd never heard of perspicacity. Happy #AtoZchallenge.

    1. I'm not sure why I know perspicacity, I have a vague notion it's from a children's book or movie - I don't know why, but I'm thinking Poppy Longstocking, or something like that :)

  7. Oooh, you've made up an excellent list! Some of those are easily glossed over or forgotten about by writers, so I can't wait to see what you have to say!

  16. I'm fairly accomplished with the emotions/reactions indicating lack of emotion. However, I will go "Zero to "V" in no time at all where my kids' safety and happiness are concerned! Can't wait to hear your take!

    1. Sounds like you are a good mother :) I hope I can do "V" and all the other letters justice :)
