As a reader, I want to feel emotions in stories. I want to be mad at the guy for being a douche and not seeing what's clearly in front of him. I want to cry about the sad parts, like death, the MC's breaking up, I want to ball so damn hard that I physically hate you for making me do so.
So Stop telling me, and MOVE ME. It will not only make your story better, your characters more life like, it will also make readers LOVE YOU.
