Blog Of The Week: The Bookshelf Muse

When I started writing again and joined the social networking universe, I had no idea where to look for good writing blogs. Google "blogs about writing" and you get 30,000,000 results. Not fun to dig through that, huh? So...I will begin sharing blogs I think are beneficial for new and old writers alike.

Today....I choose The Bookshelf Muse.

The Bookshelf Muse

Whether you're just beginning or a seasoned writer, this site is priceless. Six different description thesauruses are listed, at length, in the sidebar of the blog run by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi.

Need a better way to show anticipation?? Hunger?? Stubborness?? 
Draw a blank on how to describe a bakery?? Bonfire? 
Frozen tundra? Frost? Tornadoes? Colors and textures?
There's even a Symbolism Thesaurus for when you are stumped on how to 
show a Fall from Grace or a Crossroads or even Superstition.

I live on this site and I highly recommend it to writers everywhere :)


  1. I think you picked a real winner.

    It's a great blog for writers!

  2. AGREED! I wish I'd found this blog a long time ago.

  3. Aw you guys--thanks! You made my day (and it started out rough, so I needed this!!)

    I love this blog and what you're doing Charissa!

  4. I absolutely agree about The Bookshelf Muse. I go there all the time! I can't tell you how many times I've stopped there when I need to show instead of tell. And besides, Angela and Becca are amazing people.
