Pimp Smack Time

My buddies over at The Bookshelf Muse need your help.

First, they're a blog designed to help writers improve by coaxing them to break out of cliches. They have what they call a Thesaurus. Yes, same kind at your standard thesaurus but theirs is much broader. They have the Emotion Thesaurus and for each post it has an emotion and then lists physical attributes related to that emotion. And these are mighty extensive lists! They also have the Setting thesaurus (listing peculiarities for all five senses plus example description, similes and metaphors) and just recently they added the Colors, Textures and Shapes Thesaurus where they give varying examples of each of the highlighted color, texture or shape and then provide real world uses for them.

Really, they're a one stop shop for variety and improvement in writing. And here's why they need your help - they want to compile all of their insane amount of information (a lot of which they don't have on the site yet) into book format. In order to do that, they need to prove to a publisher that they have the interest for it.

Here's where you come in. Go to their blog and check it out. If you think what they offer is helpful, the follow them, comment there, email them, pimp their site yourself. Do whatever you can to get the word out that this is what they have to offer so they can get this book made. So if you're a writer (or not) and find value in what The Bookshelf Muse is offering, help me scream it to everyone with ears.
