The Language of the Fan

In writing Regency Fantasy, one of the things that I am currently researching is the language of the fan. There are some fun things that you can say to someone through a fan and it’s been fun trying to see how my characters can use a fan to express their emotions.

Here’s a fun clip from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement where Mia learns the art of the fan.

It’s fun to learn these different arts to give more depth to a story.

So gentlemen, if a young lady twirls her fan in either hand, she’s not interested. However if she just carries it in her left hand she wants to get to know you 🙂

So when you want to find something fun like that to add to a story, do your research and you could find some interesting things.
