The dangerous pitfalls of the eyeroll.
I am re-editing Journeys because, as always, there are some blatant errors hiding in there. And it can always use a bit more polish. But what I am finding is that my characters are constantly rolling their eyes or raising their eyebrows. Sometimes they even do that ever-tricky single eyebrow raise.
Yes, my characters are talented individuals.
Also, they probably look like they have some sort of seizure disorder with all the twitching and eye rolling.
So, I have to wonder, am I overdoing it? When you read a book and there is lots of eye communication, does it bug you or do you just go with it?
