you know how they reuse lines well I can’t get John waking up from a nightmare and Sherlock rolling over to face him and cuddling next to him and making him lie down again and looking at him all worried and doting, and then wrapping himself around him with his head on John’s chest and after a while just raising his head slightly to look up and whisper “what can I do?” and John saying “You’ve already done it" out of my head
get it out of my head
Anyone who reblogs this with a load of text trying to justify their shitty actions is only further proving my point, so I dare you.
I fixed a painfully obvious spelling mistake. Please reblog this version.

Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers
As described by Selnick’s article:
This is something I have always encouraged people to consider when writing. If you can afford it, and you have one in your area - TAKE A BODY LANGUAGE CLASS. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subtleties you never knew existed. SO worth it as a “Real Life” skill and for all those times when you’re writing and you need your character to react nonverbally.
There is also, in addition to these others, the writer resource book: The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi
This is how you show, not tell what your character is feeling.
