This may seem like an odd question, I know. But, I've been struggling with it for a while now. As the years have past, it seems my emotional status tends to be very even-keeled. I don't get highly emotional about things, I don't overreact, and I tend to examine things with an analyzing, logical point of view. The problem lies within my seeming lack of ability to create characters who emotional wrecks. It sometimes annoys me to do so. I guess since that part of my life is over with, it is hard to recapture the thought processes of an irrational person and generate them back onto the page. I find myself saying, "This character is flat, because I am leaving out the thought processes that create these emotions that I want my reader to feel." But then I have to ask myself, "Am I just writing the wrong types of characters?" Maybe I should be writing no-nonsense types of characters who are emotionally calm and very logically collected. Are there possibly people out there who are totally opposite of me, them being highly emotional trying to write logical characters? Or have I finally just gone nuts? I need to go ponder this some more.
