Cheat Sheets for Writing Body Language

We are always told to use body language in our writing. Sometimes, it’s easier said than written. I decided to create these cheat sheets to help you show a character’s state of mind. Obviously, a character may exhibit a number of these behaviours. For example, he may be shocked and angry, or shocked and happy. Use these combinations as needed.

You guys, this is such a great chart especially for budding writers. Sometimes it’s more effective to show a character being bored or excited or shocked without explicitly saying so.

The most non-responsive kiss on television, paired with the most deeply-repressed reaction of dismayed jealousy. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate.

For one second I actually thought Sherlock was going to turn his head and puke on the carpet.

He’s actually retracting his lips, actively trying to kiss her as little as possible. 

While John explodes.

BUT NO HOMO.

Nah, of course, John is just surprised and over-the-moon happy for his friend. No homo, bro.

No, but don’t you see? Sherlock’s completely STRAIGHT. He’s kissing a woman, FFS! He’ll end up with one. Why do people keep reading him as gay for NO REASON?

I like how John looks off toward the corner of the ceiling in the last gif and nods like, “Is that.. is that the corner of the WALL?  Great.  Bloody great.”
