I found this awesome blog titled Emotion Thesaurus that lists numerous traits and characteristics for every emotion a character could have. It’s a phenomenal resource to add depth and variety to writing. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes find myself using the same character tags or descriptions when I write about emotional scenes. That won’t happen anymore.
Bloggers Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi have done a thorough job collecting everything onto one sight for ease of use. Check out the blog. I know you’ll find something useful. http://thebookshelfmuse.blogspot.com
