Bookshelf Muse - Emotion Thesaurus

At the Bookshelf Muse blog, located under Writing Resources on the left of this blog because of it’s value to writers, you will find three thesauruses (thesauri?) that you will visit time and time again. These include:

Emotion Thesaurus – long lists of physical actions that people exhibit with particular emotions.
         Ex: “Amusement: a quirked eyebrow or raised eyebrows; a snort of laughter; a chuckle, chortle or guffaw’ a wide grin; eyes squinting, lit with an inner glow or twinkle of mischief; a bemused smile…”

Setting Description Thesaurus - Sensory information for numerous settings.
     Ex: sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch for locations such as alley, amusement park, bakery, beach, forest, graveyard, hospital, locker room, mountains, etc.

Color, Textures and Shapes Thesaurus - Categories here include: black, green, silver, bumpy, crumbly, foamy/spongy, fuzzy, gritty, rectangle, saw-edged/serrated, etc.

  1. Deb, thanks so much for mentioning my blog. I'm so glad it's helpful to you, and that's you've included it here.

    BTW, I think this is an awesome idea for a blog to stay organized. I'm always favoriting resources in different places and it sometimes takes me a bit to recall where one is. This is brilliant!
