One thing that never gets old is being able to share when a new book in on its way, so as you might imagine, Becca and I are pretty happy to pen this post.
The Occupation Thesaurus will be here in July!
Covid-19 wasn’t a factor when we set a date, and so when it reared its ugly head we waffled a bit as to whether to hold off releasing this book. People are dealing with a lot, and it might not be the right time to get excited over a new thesaurus. But as a few lovely people have reminded us, while life is challenging, many writers are trying to write, research projects, or strengthen their writing craft, and this book might help. And helping…well, that’s what we do.
So that means it’s time to show off this lovely cover!
The Occupation Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Jobs, Vocations, and Careers
We all strive to create powerful characters, but describing them can be a challenge. How can we reveal their personality, talents, passions, strengths, and weaknesses without resorting to the dreaded info dump? How do we combine their morals and inner complexities to the plot, providing guardrails for character arc growth? And finally, how can we do all of these things while reminding readers of their own hardships, epiphanies, and growth?
Answer: the character’s job!
Considering how much time your character spends at work, it’s no wonder that their job can influence the story in many ways. This guide will help you find the perfect occupation for your story’s cast and show you all the ways a career, character, and plot collide.
