Here is what I'm trying to do. Write short stories but my epic fails are: character development and having any sort of emotion in the story.
One of the best ways for me to learn is to learn by reading from samples that do this well. There really isn't a story genre called emotions, so, if you can remember reading a short story that enabled you to feel what the character felt or to feel the story the story emotionally as quickly as possible (within a few pages), this would be helpful. Open to any genre. Preferably online and free, but even if it is not and strongly meets the criteria, please mention it.
Alternatively, if you have learned how to do this and do it well - can you share what you do and/or how you learned to do this (something an explanation plus reading samples helps).
