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. 

What’s inside the toolkit is incredible, and we are so excited because this giveaway will be a game-changer for someone. Whether you’re an experienced author or just starting out on your writing journey, there’s a treasure trove of resources in this prize. I would love for one of my readers/followers to win, so head over to this post and enter by May 13th. If you don’t enter, you won’t have a chance to win big!

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 emotion. 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.  (You can find a few sample entries here if you want to see what these lists look like.) Whether you like it in paperback or an electronic version, I promise you’ll refer to it often.

It’s been ten years since I bought my copy of the Emotion Thesaurus, hot off the press. What fantastic investments that book and the companion Emotion Amplifier guide have been. Instead of filling my writing with words that sort-of kind-of describe emotion (show don’t tell, remember), I turn to the Thesaurus. Of course, sometimes I drift into the description rabbit-hole, but the entries are always helpful and I return to the real world a bit smarter than I was when I started! 

Check out the entire series – https://writershelpingwriters.net/bookstore/. Let me tell you, when Angela and Becca say, “Master your craft; elevate your storytelling”, that is the absolute truth!
