Characterisation- Feelings

I’m working tomorrow so my normal Friday post is shifted to today. Today I’m going to share another list I had compiled- feelings. During my novel writing process, my beta reader told me that one of my trademarks is that I delve too much into protagonists’ heads and not enough into their feelings. So during this latest bout of Writer’s Lethargy, I compiled the following list:

·         antigonistic
·         antipathy

·         care-free
·         cheap
·         cheated
·         compassionate
·         composed
·         confident
·         content
·         degraded
·         denied
