I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.
What a great way to look at writing or reading for that matter. I think most of us come at writing with a swirl of emotions. I know I do, but that may be related to subject matter; it’s hard to write personal story without the play of emotions whether we want them in our words or not. When I do my blogging for clients it’s difficult to talk about a subject on which I’m passionate and not insert my emotions. I have strong views on many things and have to decide if I want to ‘go there’ and then look at the possible impact on clients and readers.
A work devoid of emotion will fall flat, too much and you risk drippy sentimentalism or harsh rhetoric. But, the gentle swirl and swing… just about right.
