Dariel's World

Hi. I'm Dariel Raye, an interracial/multi-cultural paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and psy/suspense author, and every day of this journey is a learning experience. I'm also a counselor, musician, and animal lover. My stories are about all-conquering love and romance, and I enjoy hosting other authors as well. Enter a world where werewolves, vampires, multi-shifters, vamp-like Nephilim, Vodouin Fey, and all things paranormal capture our hearts...

Action Words

Angelic Praise Dancers Celebrating Resurrection Day, Lily Baptist Church

Just a brief post to help alleviate those pesky, passive words, stifling our wonderfully engaging stories. Three sites with action word lists. One's actually categorized for resume writers, and the other two are for writers in general - one with an actual list and the other with helpful articles and tips. Enjoy!

http://www.writeexpress.com/action-verbs.html - This list is really for resumes, but still lots of useful words for writers

http://www.creativejuicesbooks.com/action-verbs.html - No list here, but good general creative writing tips and short lessons on active vs. passive voice
