Actions: The Actors Thesaurus by Marina Caldarone

If you are a writer and never heard of actioning, then you need this book. This is a thesaurus of transitive verbs. A transitive verb is one that fits in the sentence: He ___ her, or she ___ him, or I ___ you.

In actioning, actors label each line of dialogue in a script with an action they will be doing as they speak the line. So for example. The actor might be saying: Take your umbrella. But if the verb is love - he will say it and act in a loving way. If the verb is compel, he will say it and act in a forcefully way.

Thinking of a transitive verb that the character is doing while writing a section of dialogue or a section of inner thought works the same way - it will add action to your scene.
