One Stop for Writers

For me, it’s a given that when something comes along that enhances my life my enthusiasm drives my need to share. Two such tools are The Emotion Thesaurus (along with the Positive Trait Thesaurus and the Negative Trait Thesaurus) and Scrivener (Mac version). Together they’ve redefined my writing world, simplifying and enhancing it.

There’s a wealth of resources on the internet such that writers have never had at their disposal before. All that information also represents time spent discovering, gathering, and organizing. What if someone did that for you?

Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman (The Emotion Thesaurus), from my experience, never do anything halfway. I purchased their books years ago after discovering their website. The depth and breadth of advice and resources they offered on Writers Helping Writers was astonishing. Since then they’ve expanded their Pinterest boards beyond comprehension (beware, though, you won’t want to leave).

Now comes their latest project, but for that I’ll let them explain:

Every once in a while, something comes along that changes things for the better.

And in the world of writers, this is especially welcoming, because we all know just how much sweat, courage and persistence it takes to write a book and then release it into the world.

Today I’m pointing you toward a new website which I hope will help writers brainstorm stronger characters, craft deeper, more compelling plots, and teach us how to be more effective with our description so we draw readers in.

One Stop For Writers is a collaboration between Becca Puglisi and Angela Ackerman, authors of The Emotion Thesaurus, and Lee Powell, creator of Scrivener for Windows. This powerhouse online library is filled with one-of-a-kind descriptive thesaurus collections, tools, tutorials and much more, all geared to provide the resources you need to strengthen your prose and write more efficiently.

Hop on over to Writers Helping Writers for their Launch Week festivities (October 7-14th)! If you know Angela, Lee and Becca already, you probably can guess there will be some great prizes, and probably a bit of paying-it-forward too.

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
