    Facial expressions and gestures

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Sky, Jan 17, 2010.


    So this game is to help develop characters. Someone describes how a person is feeling and the next person lists a facial expression or gesture.

    Here's an example:

    First person: Matt was furious with himself, how could he have forgotten?

    Second person: - Matt's face was gradually turning the colour of beet-root, that dark red anger washed over him; he was furious with himself - how could he have forgotten?

    The writing in red is a an expression/gesture/change to show what he is feeling/thinking.

    The second person then describes how someone else is feeling ready for the next poster. Understand? I've described what I mean as best as I can... :redface:

    Okay, so here goes...

    Julia was horrified at his words, she couldn't believe what she was hearing. How could he? He had sworn he would never cheat on her, he had made a commitment!
