One thing I've always found hard to write is emotion. Mostly the way I see emotion conveyed is through action. However, not every emotion has a direct action associated with it. Like depression. How do you convey depression? You can have a character who cuts themselves, who gets put into a hospital, who is seen taking medication. That's fine but it doesn't really convey depression. What's the best way to do it? With depression I feel like tone is the best way to do it. Even love I have trouble with. I guess my main hang-up is that I find it difficult to convey an emotion through an action (kind of the SHOWING Vs. TELLING debate). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
