Honesty in Writing

You learn fascinating things while writing--such as that there is a distinct difference between writing that a character feels something because that is what you want him to feel, and writing a character feeling something that he truly does feel.

Always be honest. It will require more work as you dig deep into yourself to figure out why the character feels what he feels, but the understanding you gain will be very much worth it.
