Write about a character who talks with their hands.
Do they gesture a lot while they’re speaking?
Do they use sign language? And if that’s the case, are they deaf, or is someone they care deeply for unable to hear?
Or is it the opposite – do they constantly push others away, telling them verbally or with body language to “talk to the hand”?
Try to get into the sensation of it. How are sounds, movement, or other sensations different because of how they communicate?
