Sometimes I think it's great. Like when my POV character is looking at other people. But when it's my POV character's own emotions, it doesn't make sense that they'd be so focused on their facial expression, but I do it anyway. Often becasue I can't think of a way to describe the feeling of a particular emotion that hasn't been used before. (Fiery rage, ice cold fear, etc.)

Inside a POV character you can use so much more to show emotion, just think about what you yourself feel when you are happy vs sad vs angry and such. It isn't purely something that happens outside the body, but a lot happens inside.


Personally, I'm not afraid of using expressions others have used. I almost always write in deep POV, whether it is first or third, and everything I write is that tinted by the POV character. This means if my character would describe what they feel as an ice cold fear, then I'd use the word ice cold fear (although I'm pretty sure I haven't seen that one). So I let the POV character decide which words are used, because using words they wouldn't use just to avoid cliche feels stilted. But that is my personal opinion.

Yes, I know this is the last day, but I'll do a separate post summing up the whole thing.

I will do this too. (Although I ran my challenge from Monday to Sunday, so today is my last day.)

END OF CHALLENGE (If you can, do me a favor and put a bit of mental echo on "END OF CHALLENGE." That's what I do.)

Final Grade: (If you can read that in the announcer voice from Mortal Kombat, that'd be cool.)

First off, I just want to say that I followed your instructions about the mental echo and it was very enjoyable. Made me grin :D


Secondly, congratulations!! You just spent 30 days working toward your goals and doing a better job than you would have sans challenge. No matter what Thomas has to say, you have to admit that's a positive thing and takes you in the right direction. When you set up your next challenge, make sure to post in here so those of us following your thread can find it.


We are all in your corner. And this lion is in your corner:
