Every once in a while, something comes along that changes things for the better.
The writing community is an amazing group of people: generous, smart, courageous, and tenacious. It takes sweat, courage and persistence to write a book and even more grit to release it into the world.
Over the years, I’ve had many wonderful authors extend their hand to me and help me improve my craft and navigate the murky waters of the publishing world. Today, I get to return the favor and point you toward a new website which I know will help writers brainstorm stronger characters, craft deeper plots, and write more effective description.
Several years ago, I stumbled across The Emotion Thesaurus: A writer’s Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. I was an instant fan.
When the dynamic duo released The Positive Trait Thesaurus and The Negative Trait Thesaurus, I snatched them up, too. Then, I found their website, Writers Helping Writers, and I wondered if it could get any better for writers.
Guess what? It can.
One Stop For Writers is a collaboration between Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman, authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, and Lee Powell, creator of Scrivener for Windows (and any of you who have known me for more than a nanosecond know that I am an uber-fan of Scrivener). They have created a powerhouse online library filled with their one-of-a-kind descriptive thesaurus collections, tools, tutorials and much more, all geared to provide the resources writers need to strengthen their prose and write more efficiently.
I got a sneak peek at the new website and I’m a believer.
Want to check One Stop For Writers out for yourself?
Hop on over to Writers Helping Writers for their Launch Week festivities (October 7-14th)! If you know Angela, Lee and Becca already, you probably can guess there will be some great prizes, and probably a bit of paying-it-forward too. Because that’s what writers do. Especially, these three.
