On surprising the writer/reader

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.  No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.” (Robert Frost)

    This is very true. Emotions play such a key part in writing and reading alike. Sadness or joy for the characters; surprise at sudden events. I cried when I wrote a death scene for a character in my novel; according to this quote, that must be a good thing!
