One key to writing about emotion is focusing on word choice.Mark Twain has some wise words to share with us.
Twain once noted, "The difference between the right word and the almost right word is ... the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." Twain's advice here should be taken to heart, especially with matters of the heart. Be sure you're paying particular attention to vocabulary selection as you describe the emotions of your character in any given scene.... ... .... ..... ... ... .. ... .. ... ... ... .....
Does Billy storm out of the room? Stagger out of the room? Lumber out of the room? Totter out of the room? Crawl out of the room?
What does "matters of the heart" mean here? Does "heart" mean "center" or "emotion"?
