How would your characters shake hands? Take four characters from your novel. Then think about how they would shake hands.
These characters are from my YA novel, I Spy Something Wicked.
Tessa - A firm handshake, but she'd be looking up from under her eyelashes to gauge your mood and reaction.
Andre - As a ghost, Andre doesn't do much handshaking. But his would be firm and he'd look you in the eye.
Chloe - Chloe doesn't do a lot of handshaking... she's a hugger. Her handshake would be a quick clasp as she goes for your shoulders.
Buster - An easy handshake with an easy grin.
How well do you know your characters? Do you know what their reaction would be in situations as big as a death in the family or something as small as a handshake?
