    Nothing says NaNoWriMo is over uite like a hungry consumption of one million books on writing craft Whether it's a literal or figurative consumption depends entirely on how deeply the novel writing has unhinged us during NovemberThis is a companion guide to The Emotional Thesaurus and the Positive and Negative Emotion guides by the same pair of authors What I love about these rather encyclopedic guides is that they make us aware of emotions apart from hysteria stress hunger and desperation all of which go into a NaNo Novelist a special smoothie blend authors seem to ingest via osmosis while penning their novels By divvying up each emotion into its outward and inward physical manifestations their emotional responses situational triggers and a myriad of other things they a remind us of just how many facets emotions have and b of many different ways of showing them without having to convince the reader through tellingAnd easily the best part about this guide is a reminder at the end of each Emotional Amplifier about potential traps they contain and ways to circumvent them If determined to write about addiction and being unfamiliar with it talk to someone with experience in the area If showing physical manifestations of stress in a character's behavior make sure there's an underlying psychological or physical cause behind it It goes without saying you'd thinkYou'd thinkBut for every warning I can point you to a pile of books which fell into that trap anyway I'm pretty sure in fact that we all could So let's not groan in frustration at it while reading only to repeat it while writing Yes please and thank youAlso this is currently free on which in my experience can be a real selling pointI hereby apologize to the world of free ebooks for that pun It'll never happen again

    This is such a jolly little addition to the wonderful Emotion Thesaurus and I can't believe it's free In very much the same vein as the main book it offers up emotional and physical states of being that amplify emotions It's a great tool for writers who are looking for catalysts to drive characters into severe emotional states It's true as some reviewers say that it's very short But it honestly doesn't need to be any longer It does its job as a great companion to the main book and hey it's free

    I haven't read The Emotions Thesaurus but found this book to be extremely helpful Though the first section was short it was packed with useful information that helped me on the novel I'm writing I skimmed through the latter half which gave lists of how to describe various emotions I'll likely return during edit time and am intrigued to purchase the thesaurus

    This is a good companion book to The Emotion Thesaurus A Writer's Guide to Character Expression Fifteen emotion amplifiers are given along with guidelines for using them for main and secondary characters Writers should find this useful but unlike The Emotion Thesaurus A Writer's Guide to Character Expression not absolutely essential

    Handy for any writerI definitely will be looking back at this again in the future

    Not sure how I feel about thisI gave it a 3 because I'm simply uncertain as to how to perceive th his book It is either ridiculous or sublime possibly it is bothThe main component is lists of emotions spelled out and spoon fed to you I was taught that writing comes from relating experiences good writing comes from the practice of observation and excellent writing combines both with a deliciously rich vocabulary There's much to it of course However it seems to me to be much that a list of psychological symptoms to define emotionsWell I guess I didn't much care for this book and I conclude it is due to simply not understanding its purpose or it its intended audience Read it and share your thoughts on it I imagine if you are an aspiring author who has lived your entire life under a rock and never having read a book this will possibly be greatly beneficialSo have at it What have you got to lose?M

    Wow wow wowSure some of these things are obvious but some of them aren't so much More importantly it's a collection that is easy to reach to if you have brain fog I have fibromyalgia and that comes with the territory So this is wonderful when my brain is reaching for that one thing that has to do with boredom it may be common sense it may not Even when my brain is cooperating it's nice to have a list of things that keep you from drawing from your own bank over and over again Sometimes you just need a shake up


  8. Jennifer Price Jennifer Price says:

    This is a great resource for writers Although I do wish it was longer It's kinda like a writers emotion dictionarythesaurusexamples all in one It really helps understand your characters a little better and portray what their feeling without saying Kyle is distracted or Paula was feeling stressed I found it extremely helpfulI gave it 4 out of 5 stars simply because I wanted words It only gave me 15 lolbut then again I guess that's why I went ahead and ordered the other 3 that she has
