Dig deeper, and a career can hint at past trauma, fears, and even the character’s efforts to run from—or make up for—the past. Select a job that packs a powerful punch. Inside The Occupation Thesaurus, you’ll find: * Informative profiles on popular and unusual jobs to help you write them with authority * Believable conflict scenarios for each occupation, giving you unlimited possibilities for adding tension at the story and scene level * Advice for twisting the stereotypes often associated with these professions * Instruction on how to use jobs to characterize, support story structure, reinforce theme, and more * An in-depth study on how emotional wounds and basic human needs may influence a character’s choice of occupation * A brainstorming tool to organize the various aspects of your character’s personality so you can come up with the best careers for them Choose a profession for your character that brings more to the table than just a paycheck.
