Would YOU vote for these two for President and Vice President? Read on to find out just what I'm talking about. Wanna buy these books? Go here, or here, or here.
Angela and Becca have REALLY made YOUR writing easier. Mine too. As if their excellent blog Writers Helping Writers (formally The Bookshelf Muse) wasn't enough. They have brought emotions to life with the Emotion Thesaurus.
AND LOOK. THEY'RE COLOR CODED. They look like yummy jelly beans. Except they're not.
When I sit down to write, I make sure I have notebook, pen and pencil, computer, and my copy of Emotion Thesaurus. It's easy to follow and everything is broken down into an easy to understand thesaurus. From adoration to worry and all emotions in between, they have you covered. I love how they add interesting stuff on each page about internal sensations, mental responses, and much, much more. This will bring your characters to life. And this will be your GO TO writing book. On top of this, they recently came out with the The Positive Trait Thesaurus and the Negative Trait Thesaurus.
Okay! They have my vote for President and Vice President with these two new additions. (Although, Ange will have to move to the states to take on this new job.) :-) You guys in??? Wait a sec. You guys are just too danged honest. :-)
The Positive Traits Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Attributes just adds to the Emotion Thesaurus in a big way. I could not believe my eyes when I opened my copy. It is way more than an itemized list, it's a GOLDMINE for writers. Are you struggling with trying to create very real characters in your writing? Need personality help for your characters? You've come to the right place. It's sister, The Negative Traits Thesaurus: A Writers Guide to Character Flaws screams YOU NEED ME! on your writing bookshelf. Want well-rounded, whole characters who jump off the page? Want to understand how to melt those character flaws into your characters making them seem as real as real can be? Want to make your antag a nasty sort with believable good qualities too? Then you MUST. I repeat. You MUST buy these books. They are companions to each other. You must have them all. They are really the only writing books you need from now on. TRUST ME. Angela and Becca! Do you accept my nomination? *wink* *wink* I guess they're doing what they were meant to do. Helping writers write interesting stories that are unputdownable! Yeah!
I'm giving away a Kindle edition of your pick of any one of these three books. Already have them all? I'll buy your crit partner one then. Just leave a comment telling which one you'd like and on Friday, March 7th, I'll use Random.org to pick a winner. Good luck y'all! Thanks for reading!
