7 Things Characters Do Too Much Of

Helpful writing tip I discovered. I was reading the blog of many authors and discovered the blog of Young Adult author Tahereh Mafi on what we read and see too many characters doing in book. So I decided to post what we see characters doing too much of.

SIGH.

GLANCE.

BLINK.

STARE.

LOOK.

GROWL. 

HISS.

Reading this makes me want to crack out the thesaurus.

  1. Too true! I found this helpful page on Eye Bookisms, the way writers overuse the eyes. http://odysseyworkshop.livejournal.com/27400.html (I link to it, as well as great follow up page, on the Writing Resources page on my blog)
