Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers
As described by Selnick’s article:
This is something I have always encouraged people to consider when writing. If you can afford it, and you have one in your area - TAKE A BODY LANGUAGE CLASS. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subtleties you never knew existed. SO worth it as a “Real Life” skill and for all those times when you’re writing and you need your character to react nonverbally.
There is also, in addition to these others, the writer resource book: The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi
This is how you show, not tell what your character is feeling.
Bettie Page, c. 1950s.

More Joey Mercury please
Yeah, that’s right, BYE, EM.
I’ve been drifting away quite a bit from wrestling (I basically just keep up with wrestlers I’m interested in now, and don’t watch the shows anymore, really), and my dash tends to be chock-full of it because of who I follow, so I might quietly go ahead and unfollow some wrestling-centric people. If I unfollow you, please please please don’t be offended- it’s just because I’m seeing less and less of what I’m interested in on my dash, and more of stuff I don’t care about, so. ♥
