How do you communicate emotion and intent in a purely written medium?


If you  naturally write in such a manner as to convey to your readers exactly what you want them to understand then that is all you need to be able to do. Emotion and intent will come with the phraseology that you use. In short, if you automatically write as clearly, concisely and expressively as you need to get across everything you want your readers to pick up, then you have no problems and have done everything this post asks.

But if you are able to do this by just being yourself as you write then two things will result in answering the questions in the prompt. Firstly, you will never know how you have done it because it is not something at which you have had to study anything outside the skills you already possess. And secondly, you will never be able to tell anybody else how to do this because, given that it has entailed no learning on your part, then it follows that you will not be able to teach your skills to others because you have not had to analyse them. Granted you could learn how other people attempt to do what is required, but it will never be your own natural, individual style. En bref, one must ask, can anybody know themselves that well? I doubt it.
