Or, One Of My Repetitive Issues

Do you have any bad habits in your writing? I never realized before last year how fixated I am on characters’ eyes. Maybe other writers focus on hands or mouths or costumes, but for me it’s all in the eyes.

What about you? Ever read an author too detailed on a character’s gestures or appearance?
