anger

Anger can be incredibly destructive.

Writers,
if you want to create a HUGE problem for your character, insert ANGER against him/her. Anger toward others disrupts, destroys, and touches hot coals of pain that burn bridges and burn holes in feelings.

And if you want to create a HUGE problem for your character, insert ANGER within him/her. Anger within eats away, destroys relationships, and makes your character act like a complete fool. Regret sets in. And the cycle causes crazy amounts of damage. Never good.

Finally, dear friend,
in real life —
we need to stop burning holes in others and ourselves.
Step back. Breathe.
Life is too short.
(And we’re better than that.)

The biblical advice, be angry and sin not, is critical not just for others, but for ourselves.

so. yeah.
The writer’s life and life in writing —
it’s such an intricate weaving of character.
(Weave carefully.)

  1. Excellent point about what anger does. There’s also these:

    Proverbs 14:29

    29 He that is slow to anger is abundant in discernment, but one that is impatient is exalting foolishness.

    James 1:19

    19 Know this, my beloved brothers. Every man must be swift about hearing, slow about speaking, slow about wrath;
