I am poking fun, because I do it too. It’s an easy way to show emotions.

But I have a few
problems with this old standby. First, these things are so overused, they’ve become cliché. (I
know your stomach is twisting at the very thought.) Second, having a character clenching his
fists might show us he’s angry, but it doesn’t show us the impetus for that anger. Is he feeling
frustrated, slighted, or jealous?

All those—and a host of other primary emotions—can lead to anger. Finally—and to me, this is
the most important—showing me your characters’ physical responses provokes no emotional
response from me. Your hero might clench his fists, but I promise, mine will remain perfectly
relaxed. So you might have shown an emotion, but you haven’t made your reader feel anything.
And that, my friends, is the point of fiction—to elicit an emotional response.

Let’s take a look at some effective and not-so-effective ways to show emotion.

ija kao mehanizam odbrane, budenje savesti ili "Bozijeg glasa" unama. Budi se nemir, koji moze trajati 24
sata, 24 dana ili 24 godine, kadje u pitanju neki tezi a dublje potisnuti greh za koji covek nije
zakonskiispastao. Ako se otkriju ubistvo, korupcija, lopovluk.., pa on provede nekovreme u zatvoru, vazno
je pitanje je li je osecao grizu savesti, ili je topojam iz proslih vekova, kad je covek bio blizi Bogu, pa imao
vise potrebeza pokajanjem. Kad vecina ljudi koji ucine neko zlo ne oseti krivicu, vecoptuzi druge, roditelje
ili oblik vladavine, onda je takvo drustvo ozbiljnougrozeno erozijom morala. Hriscanski razmisljajuci, ne
prihvatam mogucnostpotpunog utrnuca savesti i kod najgoreg coveka. Buducnost coveka, a ipsihoterapije,
jeste u otkrivanju sebe kao eticki odgovornog bica.
