Scenes, though, are different from emotions.
For someone like me who's never been in a relationship with a guy, it can be difficult to write romance.
How can a girl who's never been kissed, never held hands with a guy, never thought of one in 'that way', write about love and romance?
Love is love, no matter the intentions behind it.
I see love in the way my parents share a kiss after praying over our dinner. I see love when my little sister plays sweetly with her brother. I see love in the church, in the fellowship we have there.
Not only do I see love, but I know it.
I know it when I have long, emotional conversations with my mom that last late into the night. I know it when my brother desires snuggle-time. I know it when my sister gives me goodnight kisses and hugs.
Most of all, I know love because of my relationship with Christ. His love for me is forever and always, and no one will ever love me as much as he did when he took the wrath of God that I deserved upon his shoulders. No one, not ever.
I do know love, thought not in the lustful way of the world. I know love in its purest form; in the love of my Saviour.
As writers we have the right to write. Now, how to write well? - that is the question. If you're facing difficulty in writing emotions, my best advice is to dive deep into your own. Remember your envy, anger, shyness, love. Experience it, express it.
