Prompted by an exercise in The Perfect You, I am considering how to read between the lines within conversations and observations in every day life. As a writer, this is a critical exercise. It is safe to say that many (if not all) characters within classical and favorite novels throughout the ages have centered around observing people. Writers read body language and interpret it within their descriptive prowess. Tone, innuendo, thoughts, and feelings are exhibited through well-crafted dialogue. Idiosyncrasies are displayed, sometimes with exaggeration, to identify characters' personalities with their strengths and weaknesses.
