The Occupation Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Jobs, Vocations and Careers




Recently I received the PDF copy of the Occupation Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Jobs, Vocations, and Careers. It is written by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi.



The official release is on July 20th




They blog over at  Writers Helping Writers. I am a follower of their site and if you aren't already, I recommend you consider becoming a follower. Their site is a great benefit to writers.

There are over 100 occupations listed. When you meet someone, what is one of the first things you’re going to ask?  “So, what do you do?”

People will want to know the occupations of your characters in you book, too. This book lists combinations of factors that might help you figure out which careers will work best for your story and your characters.


It tells you that by using specific details you can help change your blah characters into intriguing characters.

Categories under each occupation include: NECESSARY TRAINING, USEFUL SKILLS, TALENTS, OR ABILITIES, HELPFUL CHARACTER TRAITS , SOURCES OF FRICTION, PEOPLE THEY MIGHT INTERACT WITH, HOW THIS OCCUPATION MIGHT IMPACT THE CHARACTER’S NEEDS, TWISTING THE FICTIONAL STEREOTYPE and a list of reasons why CHARACTERS MIGHT CHOOSE THIS PROFESSION.

So whether your character is an actor or a yoga instructor or anything in between, this book will help you make them more interesting.
