The Occupation Thesaurus Guide Is Releasing Soon…Will You Help Us?

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.

So many of you have helped us with past launches–thank you so much! And now, we hope you’ll consider doing so again.

    Hi, Angela! I filled out and submitted the form. I am excited to add the Occupation Thesaurus to my invaluable collection Thesauri by you and Becca. I would love to be an early reader/reviewer for you. Even if I am not selected, I will purchase copies for my writing partner and I. I will also share with both of my writing groups and on social media–Facebook and LinkedIn. Congratulations!

  3. Tammy Barker says:

    I am so stoked for this one! I can’t wait. Even if I don’t get picked to review, I will be telling everyone I know about it.
    That includes my Facebook page, which has close to 100 authors I know who read my silly posts.
    I will let nanowrimo know about it, and the scrivener group!
    And ask if any of the Facebook reader clubs I’m in to post about it as well!
    I wish I had a blog, but will ask bloggers to post about it for me too!
    And yes, I did fiil the form out.
    Squee!

    This is exciting news, congratulation on your new book!
    I have enjoyed using the Occupation Thesaurus on the One Stop For Writers website. Will the book have more entries than what is currently listed on the One stop for Writer site?

    Thanks Tammie

    • Hi Tammie, The one on One Stop for Writers will be the same as the book for now, but the OS database will grow with time as I am sure we will add entries as we go. Right now we have about half the Occupation entries at One stop and the rest will be put up soon. 🙂

  6. Looking forward to this new thesaurus! I am especially focusing on the settings ones now as I create a cozy mystery world for a new series. Filled out the form…hope I can help.

    • The setting ones I love–there is so much story and character potential within the setting and we need to tap into it more. I hope they help you a ton! Thank you so much for offering to help!
