This review is from: Creating Character Emotions (Paperback)
I saw this title and thought 'wow! This is going to be a helpful book'.
What a disappointment when the book arrived! The content simply doesn't live up to the promise of the title.
All the book does is tell us the importance of creating character emotions. But it doesn't show us how to do it.
Although it warns that it's easy to write emotions badly, it doesn't teach how to write them well.
It gives examples of 'good' scenes, but doesn't help us to create our own.
As a professional author, I'm aware of several 'tools' writers can use to create character emotions effectively. What a shame that the author of this book isn't aware of them, or is unable or unwilling to share them.
Great title - poor content.
