My Cousin Once Mentioned...

My cousin who is also a writer once mentioned she felt depressed while writing about her character's depression. Cousin, I can relate. In particularly emotional scenes with heartbreaking loss I feel terrible for my characters. My goal is for future readers to connect with my characters and feel compassion for them...if the writer doesn't connect with their characters neither will readers.
