Writing for Tears. Make Them Cry!

This week on Hide and Create, Diana Rowland, Joshua Essoe, Jordan Ellinger and Moses Siregar try to make you cry.

Why do we write? It isn’t merely to entertain, and it certainly isn’t for the money or the hours. No, we write to move our readers, and ourselves; to touch emotion in some way. What better way than making everyone cry!

Listen on, intrepid auditors, for our thoughts on how to do this.

  1. This is the first episode I’ve listened to, and I’d like to thank you all for an informative and VERY entertaining show! I think this is my new go-to show for listening to while I’m doing non-writing work.

    Oh, and Where the Red Fern Grows might have been the first book I ever read that broke my heart and made me bawl my eyes out. I’ve never picked it up again… don’t know if I could read it with my kids.
