First off, I love your blog! Secondly, I was wondering if you could list facial expressions (scorn, grin, snarl etc.)? — Anonymous
Thank you! I’m so glad you like it!
And one of my favorite blogs, Daily Writing Tips, has a good list of facial expressions. Hopefully that can help you. :-)
Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon which one can neither resist nor understand.
George Orwell (via writingbox)
Literature duplicates the experience of living in a way that nothing else can, drawing you so fully into another life that you temporarily forget you have one of your own. That is why you read it, and might even sit up in bed till early dawn, throwing your whole tomorrow out of whack, simply to find out what happens to some people who, you know perfectly well, are made up.
