The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


One of the biggest problem areas for writers is conveying a character's emotions to the reader in a unique, compelling way. This book comes to the rescue by highlighting 75 emotions and listing the possible body language cues, thoughts, and visceral responses for each. 

Written in an easy-to-navigate list format, readers can draw inspiration from character cues that range in intensity to match any emotional moment. The Emotion Thesaurus also tackles common emotion-related writing problems and provides methods to overcome them. 

This writing tool encourages writers to show, not tell emotion and is a creative brainstorming resource for any fiction project.

A Useful Tool

I've only read the introduction and a few entires. The book isn't something you read from cover to cover. The introduction gave some basic writing tips regarding dealing with emotions. They were pretty simple, but I found them useful. The best part are the entries. For each emotion there is a list of physical signals of the particular emotion. While some are obvious, there are quite a few you wouldn't have thought of. The entries also list internal sensations, mental responses, and cues. I know I'm going to be using this book a lot when I'm writing
