We are always told to use body language in our writing. Sometimes, it’s easier said than written. I decided to create these cheat sheets to help you show a character’s state of mind. Obviously, a character may exhibit a number of these behaviours. For example, he may be shocked and angry, or shocked and happy. Use these combinations as needed.
You guys, this is such a great chart especially for budding writers. Sometimes it’s more effective to show a character being bored or excited or shocked without explicitly saying so.
Where had this been all my life?
"It scares me to death to think that one day I might look back into my life and realize that I lived it painfully ordinary."
I scrolled for ten minutes after reading this and had to scroll all the way back, ‘cause damn.
this made me happy ^
What goes through my mind alllll the damn time.
Spent the afternoon getting out of the holes I dug in the beach with my half ton steal pickup truck. Two wheel drive and beaches are not the best of friends. This was moments before I dug in. The tide was coming in and getting closer and closer to the truck until a mysterious cable guy shows up with the wise advice to deflate the rear tires to 12psi. It worked with a little nudge from a big fellow. Thanks Chad the cable guy.
