Raiding my e-mail, I’ve come across another helpful Write To Done article, Character Emotion: Is It Written All Over Their Face? The article talks about why focusing on facial expressions might not be a good idea because it can slow down your narrative.
I do that, rely on facial expressions. It’s another one of my crutches. Got to add that to the weakness list. That’s ok, I can already foresee ways that I can and will turn it into a strength.
Do you have any writing crutches you’re trying to kick to the curb?
