Back in 2015, I did a post on “Writing Tools” about the Emotion Thesaurus. I love this tool to break through those stubborn “Show, Don’t Tell” issues. To be honest, I’ve loved all the thesaurus books Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi have released over the years.
So today, I’m bringing some exciting news from Angela and Becca at Writers Helping Writers: what the next book in their thesaurus series will be!
Without further ado, I give you…
You might have heard of The Emotion Thesaurus before, or even have a copy. The original released in 2012 and quickly became the go-to guide on expressing character emotion. The book’s lists of body language, thoughts, and visceral sensations for 75 unique emotions made brainstorming character expressions and reactions so much easier.
In this second edition, the authors have added 55 entries, bringing the total to 130 emotions.
