Are your characters always nodding laughing sighing glaring furrowing their eyebrows curling the corners of their lips sighing exhaling chuckling and rolling their eyebrows until the cows come home You’d better get this book in your basketThis is going to be a rather detailed and perhaps lengthy review so if you would rather know if I believe you should buy this book the short answer is yes If you would like to know how I came to this conclusion please continue reading as perhaps you may be able to identify with my experienceI wrote something a long time ago over ten years in fact and it was a story I started writing for fun It was a fan fiction an extension of the media that made me happy I fell so in love with the characters that I wanted them to live on beyond the screen If fan fiction is not something that you agree or relate to then you may not understand but if you have a favourite show or character s that impacted your life for the better then you will know what I am talking aboutAnyway I digress The point is that I found a community online who shared my interest and was introduced into the world of fan fiction I began writing this story over a decade ago and although it was something I enjoyed I realised that I was invested in the progression of the events note I do not use the word ‘plot’ and I will explain why later and not about the uality of writing I producedAfter some time I would re read my work and cringe at my writing I began putting a bit effort into the chapters attempting to provide details of events and character emotions and their backstories The reality was that even though as I wrote I could imagine my characters acting or speaking a certain way my readers needed than that In order for them to see the characters come to life as I did I needed to provide effective descriptions of the behaviours that they were depicting While I was successful in doing this with some chapters or parts I struggled for the most part and I relied way too much on dialogue This coupled with the fact that I began writing with no completed plot in mind I was always very bad at making and sticking to a plot led me to slowly abandon my beloved projectOver the years I would revisit my work mainly because I would get emails from readers asking me to continue the story to update it but then I would go to read previous chapters and immediately cringe at my writing I suppose over the years my writing style did change and it got a little better but I still struggled with the plot and continued filling my writing with way too much dialogue I am determined to finish the story re writing as I go along and though I know it is going to be a long journey still I know that in the end it will be worth itThis is where The Emotion Thesaurus comes in I have no idea how I came across it but boy am I glad I did As someone who uses dialogue as a crutch to express emotion I found this book incredibly helpful not only in terms of how to illustrate the characters’ behaviour emotions in writing but it also gives numerous cues in terms of physical internal and mental responses Additionally the book provides tips and advice on how to improve your writing; the most helpful for me as someone who enjoys using dialogue was the section on how to use dialogue to write emotion Here they cover utilising personality and backstory combining verbal and non verbal elements not overusing tags he said she muttered etc and using vocal cues to show changes in emotion and using dialogue meaningfullyOverall I would absolutely recommend this book and will definitely be purchasing the others from this series as I have read samples and I am convinced they will help me
