Emotion 3: Evoking emotion in the reader

Introduction

Introduction

Hey! πŸ‘‹

This is the third lesson in our series about emotion in narrative.

  • In lesson 1 we examined what emotions do in narrative, and learned to model emotion-behaviour loops.
  • In lesson 2 we explored ways to represent emotion in narrative writing.
  • In this final lesson we will try to figure out how to evoke an emotional response in the reader. πŸ₯°πŸ€£πŸ˜²πŸ˜­

Evoking emotion in the reader is one of the greatest challenges in writing—so this lesson is quite a challenge. 

If you're ready, let's dive in. πŸŒŠ
