This is another great reference that strips away unnecessary verbiage, giving you just the facts to help make your writing come alive and make your characters more relatable… instead of allowing them to shrug and glare for three hundred pages.
All writers can benefit from the contents of this book, but I especially recommend it to new writers who may be unfamiliar with beats—descriptions of physical actions—large or small—that fall between lines of dialogue.
Included are beats for different body parts, movements, manners of speech, and even one thousand verbs to write by.
The right movement or gesture can help bring readers into your story and help you avoid the risk of showing vs telling, and this short thesaurus of feelings and movements is a great aide to help you meet the challenge regardless of genre or writing style.
Can be used when writing, revising or editing manuscripts or blog content. You’ll want to keep it close because you’ll reach for it often… especially if you have emotional, over-wrought characters like mine!
