In writing fiction, always know what your characters are feeling, then illustrate that feeling through one or all of the following: dialogue, interior thought, action, description. For instance, if a character is angry, have him shout (dialogue), swear in his head (interior thought), slam a window (action), and/or have something occur in the setting that reflects his mood: shattering glass (description).
KiKi Palmer passed over to greener pastures where buffalo roam and deer and antelope play. Ironic since she hated the outdoors. KiKi is survived by her brother, Arthur, who came to her home every Sunday for the past forty years to enjoy a Manhattan. They usually ordered a pizza. Neither brother nor sister had married. According to KiKi, marriage was archaic. Two bull dogs, Sweet Pea and Cornelius, are available for adoption at the K-9 Rescue.
