They say one of the best ways to improve your writing is to keep reading. Here are some books/eBooks that I’ve found super helpful on my writing journey.

The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression

By Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglist

MASTER THE IDEA OF SHOW, DON’T TELL! This book has been pivotal in helping me improve my description of character emotion through actions. It’s helped me to use character body language to convey their emotions instead of relying on adverbs.

I highly recommend this book!

This is a great book to help give greater depth to characters. It helps writers think critically about why their characters exhibit certain traits and ways of thinking. It allows you to add more color to your characters.
