  1. I often peruse body language sites and articles for help in framing those oh-so-important 'show don't tell' phrases.

    I also once used an article titled "How Do You Know if He's Really in Love With You" (or something to that effect).

  2. Do you have a favorite body language site, Debra?
    I have Emotional Thesaurus in my Kindle.

  3. I use body language sites, too - there's a link to a good one one our HWH Helpful Writing Hints! Plus a lot of other useful links there!
    BTW the print copy of the Emotional Thesaurus is easier to use than one on Kindle because you can flick back and forth. Must admit I would have liked it to contain more internal sensations as these are just as important (if not more so) than the physical signals.

  4. Oh, this is great! I love The Emotional Thesaurus (as well as her other books), and I have a body language wheel chart somewhere that is also helpful.

  5. Check out our extra page (under Home at the top right hand corner of this page) for other sites which I listed a few years ago!
