Hello, So I recently started attending a writing group in my local area to try and meet other writers, get some insight from like minds, etc. Several of the people in attendance used and recommended using a couple of books that they said helped them immensely. As I am in a relatively smaller city/town in Northern Colorado, I wanted to see if a larger audience perhaps used them or had any insight regarding their use or if perhaps the people here are obsessed with a nonsense book. Here are the books they recommended: The Emotional Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman The Negative Trait Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman The Positive Trait Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman Maybe obsessed with Angela Ackerman? Obviously we were discussing character and character development at the time. Is there any type of thesaurus or reference book many of you swear by? Appreciate all insight and look forwards to learning some new things!
