Welcome to Writers Helping Writers!

Welcome to Writers Helping Writers, the new home of The Bookshelf Muse.  Becca and I are super pleased to finally open the doors to our new website, which we hope will be a better organized and functional home for all our writer-centric content!

Please have a poke around the toolbar to see what we have going on, like the great list of Free Writing Tools that will be added in the days ahead. And did we mention that all our Thesaurus Collections are now in one place? WHW is still under construction, so you may see a few blank holes here and there, but when we’re done, we hope this will become a true haven for writers.



Angela is a writing coach, international speaker, and bestselling author who loves to travel, teach, empower writers, and pay-it-forward. She also is a founder of One Stop For Writers, an online library packed with powerful tools to help writers elevate their storytelling.

  24. Mick Sylvestre says:

    If I won these two books I would dress up like a bear and dance.
    Record it to video and give a review of them both.

    How’s that for creme corn?

  25. Mick Sylvetsre says:

    Oh me! Me!
    If I win I will give you a stellar review, like I did on your first book.

    And I will dress up like a bear holding the two books and make a video of it.
    How’s that for Fandom?

  26. The site looks great – too bad I found this right at the end of lunch. 🙁 Will have to come back later to really dig around…

  27. Sharon Allen says:

    I just purchased the two new books and can’t wait for them to arrive. The Emotion Thesaurus has been such a big help. I’m sure these will, too. Great looking website.

  28. Alice Murray says:

    Your negative and positive trait books would be very useful on the upcoming NaNoWriMo!!

  36. Welcome, “The Bookshelf Muse”, to the Writers Helping Writers site. LOL. I just got your book, The Emotion Thesaurus PDF, some days ago and I’ve browsed over it, thoroughly, already… It’s helped me and my girlfriend a lot. Thank you very much! I’m from the Philippines and let me tell you that your book has really given me hope. To be honest, I would’ve quit writing, had it not been for your book. Really. Thank you!

    Now, you have provided us here online with the Writers Helping Writers website. I really appreciate you making this site accessible to everyone on the web. And you’re also giving away your new ones—The Positive & Negative Trait Thesaurus Books—for free too! To those who’ll fortunately get at least one of these two books, I say to you, “Congratulations in advance! Please take good care of your book(s).”

  37. Raonaid Luckwell says:

    Argh! Every time I type my response it freezes. So I am going to type out my response first in a word document and paste in. Page keeps not “responding”
    Okay – I want to say what a goddess send your Emotion Thesaurus has been for me. Whenever I meet a new writer or a newbie writer, I pimp out your book ALL THE TIME. Will definitely have to get these two.

    • Raonaid Luckwell says:

      PS shared this page on my writing group’s facebook page and mine.

    • So sorry WP is messing with your posts! Thanks for keeping at it. I have copied my responses before hitting send too, lol. I am thrilled the book has been so helpful–I love hearing that. Emotion is such an area of struggle, so we’re so pleased to be able to take off some of the stress over it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, too!

  38. I LOVE the new website! I will for sure be sharing the name around as much as I can! <3

  63. Interesting Times says:

    Congrats on the new digs 🙂 An excellent resource just got even better.

  64. I love the idea of your thesauruses…thesaurusi…cool new books. They were one of the first things I blogged about in my new blog venture. Or course I’d love to be a lucky winner!

    *throws kisses*

  85. Tyrean says:

    I’m so glad you guys are flourishing and continuing to expand your horizons. You have certainly helped me achieve that in my writing, and I doubt (just this once) that words could describe how grateful I am for all the help you have given me.
    I look forward to seeing where Writers Helping Writers takes you in the future!
    For now it will at least travel to my Pinterest boards and I’ll give my writing buddies the heads up.

    Can’t wait until the new books come out next week!

  96. J D says:

    Both of these new thesaurus sound extremely helpful.

  97. Christine says:

    Ahh~ I love the name of your site (writers helping writer)! ~

  99. Beth says:

    Look at all these comments! Congratulations on your new site, and your new books.

  100. Southpaw says:

    If we find a link in post issue, do you have a place we should notify you? For example, in the Emotion Thesarus: Hurt (https://writershelpingwriters.net/2008/11/emotion-thesarus-entry-hurt-emotional/) the link to embarrassment is no longer correct.

    Oh, there is a plugin for updating all the links in you database – all at once or approved one by one. I don’t remember the name, but it’s highly ranked.

    • becca puglisi says:

      Thank you! We’ll get that one fixed. And we’re monitoring all comments right now, so if you find something that doesn’t work, just comment on it anywhere and we’ll take care of it. Thanks again!

  101. Karen Zoccoli says:

    Stopping in to say hello. Was shared this website and looking forward to seeing what it has to offer! The giveaway looks wonderful; best wishes on your new ‘home’!

    Love the new website! I’m sharing to both my Facebook pages 🙂

  104. ER Arroyo says:

    The site looks great, Ladies! Thanks for being dedicated to helping writers in so many ways!

  105. Great new site!
    I loved the old title, ‘Bookshelf Muse’, but the new one captures what it means to be a part of the writing community. I am often humbled by the willingness of writers – especially published ones – to share and guide other writers.
    I am going to let my critique know you are here as soon as I finish writing this!
    Bravo on the new site.

  106. Janel @ Creating Tasty Stories says:

I’ll definitely share the news about the move, and I can’t wait to explore this new site!

  116. R. E. Hunter says:

    I love, love your Emotional Thesaurus and it looks like I now need your new books. Sometimes I buy craft books but then never look inside. I always think I’m going to read them, but I never seem to have the time. That’s not true with the Emotional Thesaurus. I’ve used it several times and recommended it to the members of several of my writer groups. Keep up the good work, and I’ll keep buying your books.

  124. Congratulations on the new site…Beautifully done! Please don’t put me in the drawing for your books. I’m planning on getting the paper versions.

  125. Love your new site and your books. What wonderful collections. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication

  126. Wow, your new site is awesome! 😀 “The Bookshelf Muse” has always been one of my favorite writing sites, so WHW has been added to my Feedly list! 🙂 I think your website is one of the few that’s always survived my monthly “clearing out.”

    Thank you and best of luck.

  145. Lisa Bowring says:

    Wow! The new site is beautiful and looks like it has even more content (a result of different organization/layout perhaps?). I am waiting anxiously for your new traits thesaurus’s – thesauri? Your original emotions thesaurus has been indispensable as has the free downloadable companion book. So many great ideas! Thank you Becca and Angela for sharing it all!

  146. Love the new site–so organized!
    And I can’t wait to read the new Thesaurus entries 🙂

  147. Jen Fournier says:

    I’m looking forward to the two new books! The Emotion Thesaurus has been a great resource.

  148. Great new site! I love my copy of the Emotion Thesaurus. It gets my mind working every time I’m stuck. I’ll have to check out the negative trait one now. My favorite part, btw, are the visceral reactions. I am always looking for a fresh spin on “Her stomach dropped”

  149. Congratulations on your new site and name. Very nice look to it.

    Where are the thesauruses that used to be on your home page. I refer to those quite a bit when writing.

    Can’t wait for your new books to release!

As soon as I finish my current WIP, I plan to go through and look up each setting in there to see how I can improve it. Thanks for all the great resources you offer!

  159. Amanda says:

    Love your book, The Emotion Thesaurus. My husband thinks I’m more than a little odd because I’ll sit and read your book all the time. Great resource I turn to constantly! Can’t wait to try these next two books, thank you for the opportunity to win, and congratulations on your upcoming release!
