Shiny New Toy
My first thought was to send it back, but then I opened it and now, I don't care how it got here it is AMAZING! I LOVE IT!
75 emotions compete with two pages of physical sysmptoms, internal sensations, mental responses, the long-term reaction, what it may become, and bleed over when it's being suppressed. There's the standards like anger, disgust, fear, and love, but there's also ones I never thought of using like envy, remorse, wariness, and paranoia.
I've never had a problem seeing my characters. It's getting others to see them how I do that's the problem. Then I started reading over the symptoms of paranoia, and it clicked! That's how I see my Soldiers. It just never occurred to me to write those little details down. Heck, I couldn't even find a way to convert the little things I saw in my mind's eye into words. But now I can. And it's just like wow, that's so much better.
