Lacking emotion and visceral responses

Okay, so I've got some feedback from a published author on a short story for an anthology. And I have a couple of tells when I should be showing (of course, my old foe!) but I also lack emotion and visceral responses. Gosh, I'm so glad she didn't read my earlier stories where the visceral responses were zero! At least I have some now - just not enough!

So, more emotion ... here I come.

But you know what I noticed when I started editing? Getting emotion in there hurts my brain! It's like I have to drag through my memory to try to find the words to put on the paper. I hope it's going to get easier or I'll have one sore head!
