Summary:

"One of the biggest problem areas for writers is conveying emotion to the reader in a unique, compelling way. When showing our characters' feelings, we often grab onto the first idea that comes to mind, and our characters end up smiling, shrugging, nodding, and frowning far too much. If you need inspiration for creating characters' emotional responses that are personalized and evocative, this sho-don't-tell guide includes body language, thoughts, and visceral responses for each emotion; a breakdown of the biggest emotion-related writing problems and how to overcome them; body language and action cues that address both acute and suppressed forms of emotion; suggestions for each emotion that cover a range of intensity, from mild to extreme; and description tips on emotion, dialogue, characters, and setting. Now expanded to include 55 new entries"--
