*Course Description: *

How often do we say one thing, and feel (or want to say!) another? Know how

to read the signs, and you won’t be fooled again. Body language is a great

way to convey a character’s reaction or emotional state. It reveals if

someone is lying, or genuine, personality type, if they are in love, in


Body language is the same across the board, regardless of age, but it does

vary by gender. By using body language effectively, a writer can convey many

things to the reader. And use fewer tag lines. A bit of physical movement

within the setting, a nervous trait, all keep the reader in tune with a

character’s state of mind, emotion, and keeps them entrenched in the story.

Ever think back to an encounter with someone and wonder if it really went as

well as you thought? Feel strangely uncomfortable around someone? We all

give and receive body language messages every day. We just don’t stop and

think about them. But our subconscious picks up these messages and slips

them into the conscious mind, making us wonder or doubt.
