I Become The Character So The Reader Will Experience

We never completely know, or in reality understand, what others are feeling, what pain others are coping, how deeply people are suffering.
To write “The Damaged and Broken” stories, I become another person, I become the fictional character whose narrative I am conveying. It can be difficult, but deep in my soul, I know it is necessary because for my art to impact others, I must not only tell the emotion, or show the emotion, I must have the reader experience the emotion.
I write of those damaged and broken because that is the norm. For everyone one person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not — it is their stories I tell.
