Book Review- Writer’s Craft 22: Writing Vivid Emotions by Rayne Hall

I purchased this book for my own edification


Writing Vivid Emotions is book 22 in Rayne Hallโ€™s popular Writer’s Craft series. Each of these wonderful books focuses on a specific aspect of writing or promotional work. This particular book, as the name says, centres around working with vivid emotions in oneโ€™s writing. There are several sections, ranging from body language and visceral sensations to use of dialogue and mood description, that teach you to enhance emotions in a way that flows smoothly. In concise fashion, Rayne shows you how to layer emotion, to intensify and reduce emotion within a scene, it set of scenes, and give you tips and tricks that professional writers use. Sheโ€™ll also give examples of things to avoid, and when and where novice writers are likely to make mistakes.


I have this entire series, and had the pleasure of beta-reading the most recent. I cannot recommend these books enough. Rayne uses clear, precise language in the most efficient way possible. I appreciate that. I dislike wading through fluff to get the information I need. I also love that each book focuses on a single topic.
