So Much More Than a List of Traits 22 octobre 2013
Par K.M. Weiland, Author of Historical and Speculative Fiction - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
At its heart, this is, of course, a reference manual. Ninety-five percent of the book offers an incredibly detailed list of possible positive attributes for writers to consider and assign to their characters. But this is so much more than just a list. The authors have analyzed, categorized, contrasted, and brainstormed a tremendous resource for authors to use in not just slapping traits onto their characters, but in considering the story-wide ramifications of those choices.

The fantastic resource material aside, the front matter chapters, in which the authors discuss pertinent aspects of character personality and arc, are worth the price of admission all by themselves. I've ready many books on crafting characters, but these few chapters have packed in more pertinent info than half a dozen of those books.

This book is a companion to The Negative Trait Thesaurus. If I had to choose just one of the books, I would probably go with the Negative Traits one, just because its info is slightly less intuitive. But, really, these books are two halves of a whole and belong side by side on every writer's shelf.

This Book Should Get 10 Stars! 29 octobre 2013
Par Susanne Lakin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Authors, you need this book. As a writing coach who reads and critiques 200 manuscripts a year, I can't speak highly enough about this book and the companion book, the Negative Trait book. I have a bookcase full of writing craft books that I draw on in my teaching and recommend to my clients, but I can easily say these books by Ackerman and Puglisi are at the top. It is so vital for writers to understand how to create believable characters, and that can't be done by randomly assigning traits and flaws with no regard for the background and history of the character. Just as in real life, characters need to act based on their true core personalities, which have been formed by events in the past and their upbringing. The authors of these books help writers see how to create rich, complex characters that will jump off the page. And the thesaurus style of these books makes for easy access to look up traits, flaws, and emotions (I'm including their Emotion Thesaurus in here too). Get all three. Your writing will greatly benefit!

awesome! 22 octobre 2013
Par just Joan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is an invaluable writing tool and one I know I will refer back to whenever I need to create characters. I loved how the authors laid it all out and simplified how to create characters in the beginning and then followed it up with a comprehensive list of positive attributes that offer possible reasons the character may have developed that trait. What a great way to spark ideas and get to the heart and soul of each character!

An Excellent Resource 9 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Complimenting the Negative Trait Thesaurus, this book provides you with an overview of positive character traits, to give you an understanding of how to identify them and use them for the character arc of your story. After that, it is a near-exhaustive encyclopedia of traits that you will use for your character. More so, the listing of each trait provides you with the following helpful information: definition, categories, similar attributes, possible causes, associated behaviors, associated thoughts, associated emotions, positive aspects, negative aspects, examples from literature.

This is a resource that I will us again and again, for as long as I am writing fiction.

A Must-Have Resource 2 décembre 2013
Par Lisanne Harrington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a writer myself, I have four resource books on my desk at all times, and this is one of them, along with The Negative Trait Thesaurus, The Emotion Thesaurus and Webster's Dictionary. As a writer, this is a must-have. It is well thought out, comprehensive and perhaps best of all, easy to use. Unlike a typical thesaurus, there's no going back and forth from one entry to another similar entry to another and another. Everything you need is right there.

Plus there are articles about how to create characters readers will connect with, how needs and morals influence a character, what a positive trait is and how it develops.

Writers, you NEED this book. Readers, you will also benefit from reading this book-it will help you recognize great writing from the not-so-great. I highly recommend it.
