I just started the 3rd or 4th major revision on my novel, Absalom’s Beauty,  using Margie Lawson’s lecture packet, Empowering Characters’ Emotions.

She suggests searching your document for words like shrug.

I did.

In my 77,757 word manuscript, I used the word shrug, 10 times. I’m hoping to decrease that down to maybe 2 after reading all her lecture.

I’m very excited about using her system, especially since, as a psychologist,  she knows all about body language and emotion.
