Available at your Favorite Bookseller
If you are a writer, you don't want to start editing a scene and discover it reads like a second-grader wrote it. To draw readers into the story use imaginative imagery. Include characters who come to life for the reader. Your words convey the emotion and action so well a reader becomes wrapped up in the story.
I have a tip today to help you find the right words to develop a full character.
My go-to book for developing scenes and characters is The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writers Guide to Characters Expression.
According to the description, the purpose of The Emotion Thesaurus, "in its easy-to-navigate list format, will inspire you to create stronger, fresher character expressions and engage readers from your first page to your last."
The table of contents is easy to use to find the emotion you need to portray. You'll appreciate it when looking through the 130 emotions listed to discover the one you need. Here are examples of the emotions that are covered in the book--Fear, Frustration, Happiness, Impatience, Nostalgia, Pride and more.
In the listings for each emotion, you will find ideas to keep your writing fresh.
- physical signals
- internal sensations
- mental responses
- cues of acute or long-term (emotion)
