As writers, we all have our favorite writing methods. For instance, some swear by Scrivener, while others write in Word or Google docs. Some prefer to draft longhand, using colorful gel pens and notebooks.
Most of us have a favorite writing book (or ten), too. These books have helped us understand storytelling better, demystifying certain aspects of writing. Well, today I’m taking part in welcoming a new writing guide into the world: The Emotion Thesaurus (Second Edition).
You may have heard of The Emotion Thesaurus before, or even have a copy. The original’s lists of body language, thoughts, and visceral sensations for 75 unique emotions made brainstorming character expressions and reactions so much easier. It quickly became a bestseller.
Now, there’s a bigger, better second edition. Angela and Becca have added
55 NEW emotions such as Euphoria, Vindicated, and Schadenfreude. (And that’s not all that’s new, either…the book is almost twice the size as the original.)
Anyway, if you’re interested in checking it out, you can read some of the reviews on Goodreads or find information here.
One more thing to tell you about…are you ready for this?
Wish you could attend a free writing retreat, go to a conference, snag a seat at a workshop, or have your professional membership to a writing organization paid for? Of course you do!
Well, at Writers Helping Writers, one lucky winner will get one of the above, up to a $500 US value.
Nice of you to promote this. I will be ordering my copy soon. I love the first one but am looking forward to more in the second.
Me too. These women rock the thesauri space 🙂
What a find! Thank you for letting me know about it. No more “shrugged” for me.
