From Kaw’s Desk:
Emotion Amplifiers is a tool to help a writer convey a character’s emotions and helps the reader understand what is driving the character’s actions. I have both The Emotion Amplifier and the Emotion Thesaurus on my kindle and on my desktop for easy reference when I need some help.
I strongly recommend these two books. Not only can it help with your writing, but it can help you recognize these signs in co-workers, your children, spouse and others. If you watch people like I do, you’ll see it’s practical use and maybe it’ll help you out of some tough situations or help you realize that the person you are talking to is closed off and will not listen. (This can save you some time and breath if you just recognize it and walk away from that topic.)
Good luck I hope you find it as useful as I did.
Blurb from Amazon:
When writing fictional characters, it’s hugely important to convey their emotions effectively so readers will be drawn in and become invested in those characters. The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression was written to help writers convey the quality and depth of their characters’ feelings through their thoughts, body language, and visceral reactions. But there are also ways to amplify what a character is feeling, thereby heightening their emotional responses.
In Emotion Amplifiers, a companion guide to The Emotion Thesaurus, we explore 15 common states that naturally galvanize emotion. States like exhaustion, boredom, illness, pain, and extreme hunger can push characters to the limit, compromising their decision-making abilities and decreasing the likelihood of them reaching their goals. Emotion Amplifiers is a great tool for any writer wishing to tighten the screws on their characters and amp up the tension in their stories.
