Emotion Amplifiers

When writing fictional characters, it’s hugely important to convey their emotions effectively so readers will be drawn in and become invested in those characters. The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression was written to help writers convey the quality and depth of their characters’ feelings through their thoughts, body language, and visceral reactions. But there are also ways to amplify what a character is feeling, thereby heightening his emotional responses.

In this short companion guide to the bestselling The Emotion Thesaurus, we explore 15 common states that naturally galvanize emotion. States like exhaustion, boredom, illness, pain, and extreme hunger can push characters to the limit, compromising their decision-making abilities and decreasing the likelihood of them reaching their goals. Emotion Amplifiers is a great tool for any writer wishing to tighten the screws on their characters and amp up the volatility and vulnerability in their stories.

    I ordered the book and have a screenshot of the order. I’m not able to email it, tho. My email program has issues with the one set up on your website.

    I’ve ordered a copy of your new “Emotional Thesaurus” BUT I don’t know how to ‘send a screenshot’ so that I may also receive the additional offer. Please help.

    Great assist, but I am surprised you didn’t include “fear/fright”. Will you be revising this edition in future to include those?

    This is going to sound like a silly question but I am not tech savvy in the least. I do not have a kindle, so is it possible to just download it to my desktop? I have all Emotional, Positive Trait and Negative Trait Thesaurus and this will round out my Characters.

    I love, love, love the Emotion Thesaurus. I have it bookmarked on my Kindle Cloud Reader, and keep it as an open tab while I am writing so I can be there with one click. Which I do quite often.

    Thank you for this amazing resource.

  8. You have been an incredible inspiration, thank you for all your advice.
