Writing is hard, and sometimes we need a leg up to create compelling characters who draw readers in. Below are three resources that can help you brainstorm fresh emotional expressions, plot out unique attributes and flaws, and gain a deeper understanding of your character’s motives, fears and emotional wounds.
For more information on any of our books, please visit our Bookstore. And don’t forget to check out our Helpful Resource List and Tools For Writers. Happy writing!
Praise for The Emotion Thesaurus:
One of the challenges a fiction writer faces, especially when prolific, is coming up with fresh ways to describe emotions. This handy compendium fills that need. It is both a reference and a brainstorming tool, and one of the resources I’ll be turning to most often as I write my own books. – James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Deceived and Plot & Structure
Praise for The Positive & Negative Thesaurus:
In these brilliantly conceived, superbly organized and astonishingly thorough volumes, Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi have created an invaluable resource for writers and storytellers. Whether you are searching for new and unique ways to add and define characters, or brainstorming methods for revealing those characters without resorting to clichés, it is hard to imagine two more powerful tools for adding depth and dimension to your screenplays, novels or plays. ~ Michael Hauge, Hollywood Script Consultant and Story Expert, author of Writing Screenplays That Sell
