Transform Emotions in Writing
Begin at awakening. Write the first feeling or mood you experience.
Does anxiety appear?
Do your eyes open to a sense of tranquility?
Does a memory flood your mind?
Keep your pad with you during the day. Chart your feelings.
Use different words or phrases to record a feeling that repeats.
What happens to your body language when you write the opposite emotion?
How many times have you recorded one emotion or two?
Find imagery that represents emotions met during your day. Notice if fear flees out the window when you bring in joy. Let playfulness skitter along the ground like a lizard when met with anger. Frustration sports a canary's song when tuned with a fond memory.
