Which emotions make a character/ story most interesting?

This week, I'm completing FROZEN FURY, book five in the Seven Sin Sisters series. It's been the most difficult to write because the heroine's soul sin is anger :po: which is a bit tricky to turn into love Bouncy Icon Smilie. Deadlines won't wait though so it's fingers to the keyboard for the next five days. I'm thinking "Angry Love" might be where I begin... it could make for some delicious sex scenes. :whistle:

Seriously though, such a strong emotion like anger can make for a strong emotion like love to be that much more intense. Sometimes when reading a book, I'm grabbed up into the story of a couple who harbor negative feelings for one another before discovering they're in love.

I think that emotions like anger help to make characters more believable.
Do you find it stressful writing about anger? I can imagine you must have to 'wind yourself up' to get into the right mindset.

I've actually realized that the anger has transcended into my interactions the last few days. I'm baking cookies and making my sons' favorite dinner tonight as a "sorry, mommy got crazy with her writing" gesture!?

LOL! Oh well, it never does any harm to keep children on their toes *winks* - On that theme your hubs must be eager for you to get round to writing the romantic parts.
