How to Talk With Body Language


Writing Body Language is a wonderful way to inject movement and punctuate mood into your story. I am a firm believer in paying close attention to my characters and signaling to the reader what they feel without having to actually spell it out.



Juliette Wade wrote a great blog about it, far better than I could.

Good point. Body language is an actor's tool that a writer can use, too. Let our characters use more than words to communicate.

Yes, Ann. One of my favorite hobbies is to observe people (behind dark glasses :)) It helps!
