ON NOW: The Ultimate Writer’s Toolkit Giveaway
I have a giveaway to tell you about that you absolutely do not want to miss. Angela and Becca, the co-authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, are celebrating their book’s 10th anniversary with a massive giveaway!
They’ve scoured the internet for the best tools to help a writer strengthen their storytelling and give their career a boost – I’m talking software licences, subscriptions, course bundles, and even a full set of the Writers Helping Writers thesaurus guides. And some lucky writer is going to WIN IT ALL.
I would love for one of you to win, so head over to this post and enter by May 13th. Good luck to you!
Also, this is a good time for me to suggest looking into The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression. If you struggle with how to show your character’s emotions, or simply need to stop using the same actions over and over (like me), this book has 130 different emotions and gives you lists of ways to describe them through body language, thoughts, visceral sensations, dialogue cues, and more. It’s helped me with every one of my stories! And when I bought the updated version, I passed the original one on to my oldest child, who is also a writer. Maybe it will help you, too!
(You can find a few sample entries here if you want to see what these lists look like.)
