Tips on writing facial expressions
Question: Is there any tips that help to describe facial expressions. Such as the position of the mouth, eyes, eyebrows, head or even hands and arms. Expressions such as anger, deep thought, uncertainty, sarcasm, physical strain (lifting weights) I believe I have some basics already but am looking for more creative or elaborate ways of expressing the mood. Thanks for any help! Answer:
Some reference books have been written to help writers in this area.
Once such book is The Emotional Thesaurus
by Angela Ackerman. (Feel free to order it through this site at https://www.how-to-write-a-book-now.com/store.html)
You may find books such as this to be a helpful starting point.
Of course, it is always best to find your own unique way of describing emotions through a character's actions and words. That's what makes your writing come alive. It's part of what will give you a unique voice that sets your writing apart.
