Sometimes it seems as if my characters are just one big mass of body language and dialogue, twitching and chatting their way from scene to scene. Things happen, and they flock together to talk about it. More things happen, and they talk about that, too. And they twitch.
Nod, smile, laugh, cough, hem, haw, choke. Clear throat, raise brow, lift leg, slap. Throw glance, toss head, push bangs, wail. Flush face, cry tears, bend back, pull.
Lord almighty, stop!
LOL, I’m sitting here wrestling with the same issue! Trying to get past all that spastic movement into the heart of the emotional situation!
