1 Corinthians 13:1
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
Some years ago, a published author in my general area referred this verse to me. I never thought of the Bible as a portrayal to describe writing.
She said, “The same applies to writing. Even if you have the most well composed work, perfect grammar and punctuation but have no emotions. Then your work is empty. If you haven’t allowed your soul to spill upon the page then you have nothing. Emotions are what move people to read your work and remembers it. The most remembered works are those which stirs people emotions.”
She later explains that when someone read your work years later they will look for the emotions that can speak to them across time. They want to hear you speaking to them. Your work will live on far beyond your years and propel your existence into immortality.
