When you're looking for just the right word, try the "Feel Wheel"

Unread post by Marisa Goudy » Thu Jul 09, 2015 6:10 pm

Your thesaurus may be a handy resource when you're working on a blog post or a piece of fiction, but there are so many options there, and many of the words you'll find are way off the mark.

When you're looking for just the right word to describe an emotion,
you might try "The Feel Wheel."

You want to express surprise? The wheel gives you four types of surprise (startled, amazed, confused, excited) and then breaks those down even further.

It seems a little silly, but I have a feeling it can come in handy - especially during late night writing sessions when you can't see straight!

Hey now...that is really awesome! I know I am not the only one that gets stuck in a rut using the same set of descriptive words. I am loving this!
