Sometimes I think of things I wish I’d added to my Master Lists for Writers book. I’ll probably release a new edition someday, but in the meantime, I just put them on the blog.
When I was writing The Phoenix Codex, I sometimes took way too much time thinking about how to describe anger or other emotions. If my main character, Cassie, got angry enough, wild animals attacked whoever pissed her off, so she became very aware of how her anger feels.
Even when you’re just looking for a few words or a phrase, you can get bogged down. With that in mind, here are ways to say someone felt angry in a more vivid way than “he felt angry.”
Here’s something I can’t stress enough, though. Usually, you don’t need to do this at all! There are a lot of ways to show someone is angry.
