Show not Tell

Date: 6th Oct 2017 @ 12:45pm

Show not tell is a way of showing the reader what the character is feeling without telling them directly...

For example,

Her hands became warm and clammy. 

Would make us think she was getting nervous.

To help us with our diary writing...
What show not tells can you think of to show the character feels WORRIED?
