The Bookshelf Muse's Descriptive Thesaurus Collection
I thought hard on where to post this, and this seemed the right place--Non Fiction, and this is all about being between Writing and Publishing!
Some of you know me, either through The Bookshelf Muse, or The Critique Circle. Those who don't, I moderate over at The Critique Circle, and I co-own a blog for writers called The Bookshelf Muse
. Our blog features, among other things, a collection of thesarusi just for writers. Currently we have:
An Emotion Thesuarus
, listing all the possible actions for characters to express to show an particular emotion
A Setting Thesaurus
, listing all the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touches of popular settings used in novels and stories
and a Color, Texture and Shape Thesaurus
, which explores a database of comparisions for finding the perfect simile or metaphor
We have been approached by many writers in the last year to create an extended
Thesaurus Collection of these and other thesauri in print, and we would like to provide this for writers if it would indeed be a useful writing aid. But because of the work involved of creating something that would be akin to writing a thesaurus, we need to know that there are enough folks out there who would want to see this.
If this isn't something you'd find useful, then no worries.
But if it is, we'd love to hear from you. Please come and visit us and let us know. You can find us at: http://thebookshelfmuse.blogspot.com/
Too, we have a Facebook group!
