Over the months, I’ve created several writing prompts and shared resources but there’s one I haven’t covered – Pinterest. Many of us use storyboards for characters and setting references and this social media spot is the natural place to pin, post and share your ideas. Not to mention, every story board is saved in one spot for all your writing ideas.
According to Jane Friedman, there’s a list of more benefits to creating a Pinterest account as a writer and her article is about guide to getting started. Writers can share their creative process, gain traffic, and even post their books with buy buttons. The visual boards are also a way for readers to get to know you. You can share your own interests. Pinning boards can be kept private or public and you can quickly pin an idea. Even better what you pin to a board is saved in one spot and doesn’t take up physical space. This media tool is a quick reference for your imagination to spread and organize ideas. Did I mention, that you can link your own work?
If you’re going to spend time doing everything but writing (sometimes me), then spend it working toward your novel. Go pin crazy and get your posting done at the same time. I chose to post blogs to keep the practice of writing something every day. You can do the same with a visual tool.
