Writing Tip of the Day-Characters

Emotional reactions in the heroine are best illustrated by their physical effects. These effects should be added in small increments as one or two line descriptions of stress movements, or responses following dialogue and in dialogue tags themselves. An accumulation of small reactions has greater impact than a large section of exposition about the heroine's emotional state.
