- She grabbed the cup with her hand.
- She gripped her chair with her hands.
- He wiggled the fingers on his hand.
- He rubbed his eyes with his hands.
The word “hand(s)” is not needed in any of these examples. Nobody is going to think your character rubbed their eyes with their feet or gripped the chair with their butt. So save words, space, and redundancy by leaving hands out of your writing. See how much stronger and simpler these sentences are without hands?
- She grabbed the cup.
- She gripped her chair.
