Today I’m going to share a wonderful writer’s tool that I discovered several years ago. It started at the blog, Bookshelf Muse and grew into something so fantastic. It eventually became a book: The Emotion Thesaurus.
It is a resource for descriptions of feelings, emotions, settings, colors, body language, etc. for use while writing. I’ve relied upon it many times and the electronic version is great because it is searchable. Clicking on the cover below will take you to the Goodreads page for the book.
It is the ultimate aid in adhering to the well-known addage “Show, don’t tell.” I hope it will prove as useful to you as it was for me. Happy writing!
I have this and LOVE it. So helpful!
It sure is! Glad you already knew about it.
I have that book and have found it to be a great resource!
Yes, you gotta love those writing references that you end up turning back to over and over again!
