One key to effective writing is the ability to convey complex emotions to the reader. But often, our first ideas for displaying emotions our characters are experiencing are clichés: “tears sprung to her eyes,” “his heart pounded,” “they all let go of breath they hadn't realized they'd been holding while somewhere in the distance a dog barked.” In this class, we'll learn how to do better by digging into scenes and moments from life, literature, art, music, and more and making a catalog of how to show longing, anxiety, love, and more in a fresh way.
