Recently I received the PDF copy of the Emotion Thesaurus, A Writers Guide to Character Expression. It is written by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. They blog over at the. I am a follower of their site and if you aren't already, I recommend you consider becoming a follower. Their site is a great benefit to writers.
There are 75 emotion entries in the book, starting with the first entry of Adoration. With each entry, they tell the physical signals, internal sensations, mental responses, cues of acute or long term adoration and cues of suppressed adoration. The last entry is Worry. But this book is much, much more than just a thesaurus! They talk about the power of emotion in our writing.
They tell how dialogue is a proven vehicle for expressing a character’s thoughts, beliefs, and opinions. But to convey feelings well, a writer must also utilize nonverbal communication such as body language, internal sensations and thoughts. The Emotion Thesaurus will help writers brainstorm new ideas for expressing a character’s emotional state. And, it will help you avoid common pitfalls such as telling, using cliched emotions and melodrama. The book is also filled with writing tips throughout, such as: WRITER’S TIP: Don’t get caught up on the eyes to convey emotion. While eyes are often the first thing we notice in real life, they provide very limited options for description possibilities as writers.
Instead dig deeper, showing the how the character behaves through their body movement, actions and dialogue. And WRITER’S TIP: Smell triggers memory.
Take advantage of this sense and build olfactory description into the scene. This will draw readers in and make them feel part of the action. I have went through my PDF copy and copied and pasted all the writers tips and ran them off on my printer to have as easy reference. As a writer, I feel we can never have enough tips! Here is a quote from me...
Some people say anyone can write, but writing a good story is what we strive for. Can everyone write a good story? With the help of this book, we can all become better writers. I highly recommend it. You can order the book or go over to their and order the PDF, which is what I have. Posted by Janet F. Smart on ©Janet F.
I've lived in rural West Virginia all my life and I love it. West Virginia is a beautiful and friendly state that everyone should visit at least once in their life.
I am a mother to 3 wonderful sons. I love to write children's books.
I've had a short story published in an anthology, 5 poems published and a MG (Duck and Cover) published. I have also written another MG and several picture books for children.
I write a column for children in the regional magazine called Two-Lane Livin'. Please feel free to join in on the fun and leave a comment or two.
