Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s a writer’s job to create compelling characters who can withstand life’s fallout without giving up. But building authentic, memorable heroes is no easy task. To forge realistic characters, we must hobble them with flaws that set them back while giving them positive attributes to help them achieve their goals. So how do writers choose the right blend of strengths for their characters—attributes that will render them admirable and worth rooting for—without making it too easy for them to succeed?
 Character creation can be hard, but it’s about to get a lot easier. Inside The Positive Trait Thesaurus, you’ll find: * A large selection of attributes to choose from when building a personality profile. Each entry lists possible causes for why a trait might emerge, along with associated attitudes, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions * Real character examples from literature, film, or television to show how an attribute drives actions and decisions, influences goals, and steers relationships * Advice on using positive traits to immediately hook readers while avoiding common personality pitfalls * Insight on human needs and morality, and how each determines the strengths that emerge in heroes and villains alike * Information on the key role positive attributes play within the character arc, and how they’re vital to overcoming fatal flaws and achieving success * Downloadable tools for organizing a character’s attributes and providing a deeper understanding of his past, his needs, and the emotional wounds he must overcome If you find character creation difficult or worry that your cast members all seem the same, The Positive Trait Thesaurus is brimming with ideas to help you develop one-of-a-kind, dynamic characters that readers will love. Extensively indexed, with entries written in a user-friendly list format, this brainstorming resource is perfect for any character creation project.

Extensive list of traits, I'm using it to make every character I create unique. It helps to deepen a character past according to want he/she is now. And to create a interresting pool of characters that interact in differents ways, it's not interresting if there is no conflict !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Have Resource 2 décembre 2013
Par Lisanne Harrington - Publié sur
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ONLY 5 STARS BECAUSE AMAZON WON'T LET ME GIVE MORE ... 17 janvier 2014
Par Lynn - Publié sur

Every writer needs both the Positive Trait Thesaurus and the Negative Trait Thesaurus. They go together. Add in the Emotion Thesaurus and the great downloads and extras these talented writers give you on their website (which add up to another fabulous book on their own) and you probably won't need too many other books on the craft of writing. A good dictionary and a Synonym finder and you are all set.

I have bought all three "Thesauruses" and loved them so much I bought all three for my Kindle too so I can have them on the move and when travelling. These Thesauruses are exceptionally well organised and contain huge amounts of information in a concise and practical format.

You could just leap in and pick a handful of traits to apply to your character(s) and they would still be better off than when you started. However, taking the time to read through the "users guide" chapters will add so much to your understanding of how to craft truly memorable characters that it is well worth the time invested to do this. Then use the listings to pick and choose traits and counter-traits and the ways in which they would possibly be exhibited to start building a team of people that will resonate with readers. Also use the listings to develop conflict between characters in a psychological way by giving each person traits that would "irritate" or "confuse" the other - much more subtle than the standard good guy VS bad guy.

I can't rate these books highly enough. I know I'm going to be buying them again every couple of years as they become tatty and worn out with daily use!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't List, Describe......... 13 novembre 2015
Par Donald Hunt - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A writers aid to character attributes, whether you are, plot driven, or a character driven
writer, the people in your stories must come across as real, or your readers will not not
relate to them.
It is difficult to like and root for, or dislike a character, that has nothing to them but their name.
Readers want to know, why and what, makes the bad guy like he is, and why is the heroine different.
90+ positive traits are covered, and discussed, covering almost everything you will need to make your
characters real as life.
You will find an, Achievement, Identity, Interactive and Moral breakdown chart, to help you create each of
the people in your stories.
Don't just list your characters traits, describe them.

Par just Joan - Publié sur

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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 MUST HAVE TOOL 31 janvier 2017

I'm writing the same review for the book 'positive trait thesaurus' and 'negative trait thesaurus' as they are equal in quality and usefulness:
I don't believe there is any reason to write anything more until you have purchased these books!
Unless you have a masters in psychology maybe you won't need them. Even so, I believe it would be a good quick reference.
These books hand writers the tools they need to understand the complex nature of their characters psychology.
These books will give you a clear cause and effect to every personality trait your character has, giving you a more indepth understanding of your own character, which will in turn give your reader a more in depth understanding of your character and be more involved in your story.
Unless you enjoy torturing yourself and making life harder on yourself:
A must have.
