Why are you crying?
The awkwardness of a crying character came up for me this weekend when I was reading one of my favorite writers and a tear trailed down his character's cheek to the pillow.
I hate it when I describe a tear running down a cheek to a pillow. I hate it when my character's tears well up. Or when my character's choke back a sob. For me, having a character cry is one of the most awkward things I have to write.
So, how do you do it if you do it? Do your characters cry?
