Today's recommendation comes from Rachel Leigh Smith.
Struggle with how to show, not tell a character’s feelings? Need help creating fresh body language that doesn’t come off as stale or cliché?
The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression is a writer’s best friend, helping to navigate the difficult terrain of showing character emotion. Through an easy-to-use list format, this brainstorming tool explores seventy-five emotions and provides a large selection of body language, internal sensations, actions and thoughts associated with each. - See more at: http://writershelpingwriters.net/the-emotion-thesaurus-a-writers-guide-to-character-expression/#sthash.z2y9ghT5.dpuf
If you're a writer, The Emotion Thesaurus is a must-have. Especially if you find yourself using the same few emotional descriptors over and over and over because you can't think of anything else. I've had this book for a couple of years now and it's a lifesaver. It's taken my emotional descriptions from humdrum and expected, to unique and vivid.
I have it in paper, but it's also available on Kindle, Nook, the iBookstore, Kobo, Smashwords, and as a PDF.
