A to Z Challenge: Emotion

Emotion can be and should be expressed as an ever changing element in your plot. How? Can I do something completely off the wall to demonstrate how easy it is??

Emotion like this in scene one. 

Scene two changed like this. 

Scene 3 looks like this. 

Change happens to the emotions again in scene 4

Yes. It just changed again. 

And change here too. 

Emotions should rise and fall and change and bend and curve and mold to your characters. 

Without emotional change, your character will end up looking like a cardboard cutout, which is boring and dull.  How's the emotional level of your MC, beautiful guys and dolls?

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.
