I have been adding subtle body language descriptions to my characters when they are speaking. I am glad to share WHY we should do this! โค

  1. Body language includes wagging one’s tail, correct? Actually, you poor humans are so limited in that regard. We canines can show how we’re feeling in myriad ways just with our tails. We tuck them in, hold them high, vigorously wag them, slowly wag them . . . etc . . . etc . . .

    Anyway, my advice is, that the next time your protagonist gets in a pickle have him or her explain his or her way out of it with a lot tail action. You can’t go wrong doing that. Believe me.

  2. Ha, Ha! That is great advice Danny! I am a student of writing so I feel like I am still learning. The idea is to give some dimension to your character so they appear human. That helps the dialog not appear stilted and allows the reader to identify with the emotions of the hero… at least I hope this to be the case. LOL!
