Authors Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi’s have a brand new edition of The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression!
This second edition has 55 new entries and twice as much teaching material. Since I use their thesauruses (thesauri?) as a kind of shopping mall for whatever scene I’m writing, more is definitely better.
I’m looking forward to getting a copy as soon as it is available. If you’re wondering how I use a book like this, check out my earlier posts here:
The Reverse Backstory Tool Brings Your Characters to Life
Write Believable Heroes, Villains, and Emotions with The Positive/Negative Trait Thesauri and The Emotion Thesaurus
A Mini-M.F.A. in the Psychology of Character
Are you feeling it? Emotional Connection in Fiction Part 1
Tools: Emotional Connection in Fiction Part 2
Anyway, if you want to look into it further, you can read some of the reviews on Goodreads or find more information here.
Also, one more thing to share…a MEGA-OPPORTUNITY to win something amazing!
