I’m so excited to FINALLY be able to talk about this book! I am a huge fan of OneStopForWriters and the thesauruses (thesauri?) that Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi create. They are amazing tools for writers. That’s why they are a staple on my my writing resources page.
I have the original Emotion Thesaurus. It lists body language, thoughts, and visceral sensations for 75 unique emotions. It is my go-to resource for character expressions and reactions, especially after my main character has gritted his teeth for the nineteenth time!
Each entry has examples of physical sensations, internal sensations, mental responses, acute or long-term responses, signs the emotion has been suppressed, how it may escalate or de-escalate as well as associated power verbs and writer’s tips.
This second edition has 55 new entries as well as so much more new content that the book has doubled in size! You can read all the details about it here. You can also see a list of the new entries and check out some sample pages here.
Also, Angela & Becca are giving away a free webinar recordingof one of their popular workshops on Emotion, so head over if this is an area of struggle for you. It might really help!
After you’ve checked it out, pop over to my FB page and let me know what your favorite writer resource is!
