Hi everyone! Becca and I have wrangled together a small gift for you: Emotion Amplifiers, the popular PDF companion to The Emotion Thesaurus, is now an ebook. Even better, it’s free.
As writers, we all understand just how important emotion is. Commanding it well means creating authentic characters who share their raw, powerful stories with readers, pulling them in deep and making them care.
But how do we push characters to the edge of an emotion? How do we draw out every last drop of tension that’s possible? The answer is to amplify their emotions through whatever means we can, applying pressure that tests limits, causes instability or even leads a character toward rash behavior, bad decisions, and ultimately, mistakes.
Emotion Amplifiers profiles fifteen different conditions (such as Pain, Exhaustion, Attraction and Addiction) that can help complicate a situation, causing emotional volatility and stress. Like The Emotion Thesaurus, each entry lists the Physical Signals, Mental Responses and Internal Sensations a character might experience while in the throes of an Emotional Amplifier.
We hope this ebook makes a strong addition to your virtual bookshelf, and helps you find creative and compelling ways to add complication to your hero’s rocky path toward his goal. Snag your copy (or gift it to another writer!) here:
Happy writing, and thank you so much for all your kind support of us over the years.
