THE 7 DEADLY SINS OF NOVEL WRITING + A MUST HAVE THESAURUS

Click on over to Angela Ackerman's uber-popular blog THE BOOKSHELF MUSE and check out her 7 part series on the 7 Deadly Sins of Novel Writing.


1. Low Stakes

2. Counterfeit Characters

3. Missing the Mark on Voice & POV

4. Plot Snafus

5. Flat Wordsmithing

6. Dialog Disaster

7. TMI -Too Much Information

Final Thoughts---and one more sin thrown in for good measure:)

So now that you are revising your novel, minding the 7 sins, you'll need a killer thesaurus so as not to commit sin #5. Where do you go? Back to The BookShelf Muse for:

An Emotional Thesaurus

A Settings Description Thesaurus

A Color, Textures and Shapes Thesaurus

To look up specific Emotions, Setting Descriptions and Color, Textures and Shapes, go to THE BOOKSHELF MUSE and scroll down a bit. On your right is word after word after beautiful word:)

Happy Writing & Revising!
