Body language chart: Part one:

From Kaw’s Desk:

Body language is important because a lot of our emotions and intentions are broadcast by non-verbal communication. You assume a dog is friendly because it’s mouth it hanging open, it’s tongue is lolling around, it’s ears are up and there’s a sparkle in it’s eyes, usually accompanied by some tail wagging. They can’t talk and yet they get their message across.

Standing by the door: “Hey human, we need to go outside or you’re going to get a mess on the floor.”
Staring at you while you’re doing something: “Hey hairless wonder, pet me/I’m lonely. You’re lonely and need to pet me.”
Head flopped onto the floor and a sigh: “You disappoint me, biped.”
Food bowl sent careening across the floor: “Fill this!”

We do the same thing, but without the tail wagging. (Although some of us do have some wag in our walks.) It’s very important in our writing. So here’s some helpful stuff for you!

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
