Go Read Something!

Capturing pain in writing is difficult.

Capturing a character’s response to someone else’s pain is even more difficult.

In my own writing, I try to focus on emotion and unique responses. I try to encourage my characters to react to things in a way that is unusual, but yet still true to the human experience. For that reason, I was awestruck by David Peak’s short story, which is so raw and emotional and powerful. Because of that, it is also so, so, so true.

So, go read “Collapse” by David Peak, published by Keyhole Press.
