Writing Tuesday: Feelings

For most of us in the writing world, this is not new. I've decided to go with this just to remind you or just in case you've never heard of this before.

This is a Feelings Wheel. It helps explain how we feel in a more elaborate way. Feelings are comprised of feelings - there's always a reason why we get sad, happy, angry, etc -  and that's the purpose of this. As writers, this wheel aids us in finding other words for the same thing. Instead of writing someone's sad all the time, we have the option to use lonely or ashamed, etc. Keep in mind there are more feelings than this wheel allows. Its purpose is to help us understand how we feel.

There are two typos in the wheel above.
*estatic = ecstatic
*remoresful = remorseful

Happy Reading and Keep on Writing!
