I want to take a moment today to shout-out a writer’s blog that I never miss – Writers Helping Writers: Home of the Bookshelf Muse.
The creators of this blog are also responsible for putting together the incredible writing resource book – The Emotional Thesaurus. But they didn’t stop there! They have added The Rural Setting Thesaurus and The Urban Setting Thesaurus, The Positive Trait Thesaurus and the Negative Trait Thesaurus. They are currently at work on a character trait thesaurus that I’m certain will be every bit as good!
There are so many great things to say about this resource blog. Practically every post is interesting and informative and the site is well set-up for finding archived material.
I’ve been going to this site for at least a couple of years and only this week caught on to the fact that I can feature their neat little logo on my sidebar and shout them out to other writers.
Here’s a bit about the bloggers on the site:
Becca Puglisi is an international speaker, writing coach, and bestselling author of The Emotion Thesaurus and its sequels. Her books are available in five languages, are sourced by US universities, and are used by novelists, screenwriters, editors, and psychologists around the world. She is passionate about learning and sharing her knowledge with others through her Writers Helping Writers blog and via One Stop For Writers—a powerhouse online library created to help writers elevate their storytelling.
Angela Ackerman is an international speaker and bestselling author who loves to travel, teach, empower writers, and pay-it-forward. She also enjoys dreaming up new tools and resources for One Stop For Writers, a library built to help writers elevate their storytelling.
Becca and Angela really walk the talk when it comes to sharing. They are very generous with the material they put on their blog and often their responses to comments are as informative as their posts.
Writers – follow this blog! It will be time well spent on the internet.
My favs too!
Thanks Jean – for the comment and the tweet 🙂
Francis, you are the sweetest! What a lovely shout out to trip across. I am so glad you’re finding WHW to be a helpful resource. We love having a hub for writers to turn to, especially when they need anything description related. Becca and I both believe we are all in this together, and we succeed best when we help one another. Thanks for being such a great part of the community and getting the word out about our blog and other resources that might help people!
Angela – I’m so pleased you found the blog and that you are pleased with it. As I say in the post, I’ve read you and Becca’s blog and used your books for a few years now. I’m so happy to spread the word 🙂
