Okay, I admit it, I'm a softy. Or mentally unstable, never quite sure where the line is. There have been scenes that I write that make me cry. Actually, some of them still make me tear up a bit.

Anyone else?

Not always, but yes, I have cried sometimes while writing. I'm also not that much of a softy or I probably would be a little more emotional while writing my books.

I'm a bit of a stoic in regards to art. Even if I am very emotionally invested or engaged by what I am reading, writing, or watching, I rarely show it externally. But despite seeming outgoing and friendly, I am actually a very controlled person. I'm weird. o.O

I don't often cry when I'm writing. Usually I have a maniacal grin. Even if someone dies.

...

Especially if someone dies.


XD I only have one character I consistently cry over when writing, actually. Everyone else either gets a "meh" or evil laughter. :rofl: :twisted:

Sometimes, but not while I'm writing. Only when I read a scene over later. But I tear up about anything--I tear up when I read about mountains, sunlight, joy, regret, or any random thing whatever almost. So that's not saying much.

I usually tear up when I'm working something out in my head before I put it down on paper. I sometimes think if someone were to walk into my room and see me in tears, it would be so awkward trying to explain why I was crying. :rofl:
