I'm trying to figure out why I keep describing body language in my writing. One editor (nameless) told me it was distracting. Of course, this makes me hyper-aware of my eye-rolling, stomach twisting and finger tapping. I agree that too much can be a nuisance but I can't seem to avoid it!
I think that body language can say so much. The words may come out one way but body language differs; it shows true feelings. (Just ask my husband.) "Where do you want to go eat?" The list begins. My response is "Whatever." Wrinkling up my nose says more than that single word.
So, I guess it's the balance. As in all good things...wine, chocolate, and so on.
