I like to use Pinterest to gather inspiration for my stories, but I don’t log in and play there regularly – it’s too easy to lose half a day there! But recently, I logged in to reorganize my Dragonfire images and ended up sorting other boards out, as well. It’s now possible to create sections within a board, so there are boards for each of my series with sections inside for each book in the series. Most of those boards also have extra images in them, which either are inspiration or apply to the entire series.
So, there’s a board for Flatiron Five, which has subsidiary boards for each book in the series. The extra images on this board are of Manhattan.
There’s also a board for Secret Heart Ink, again with subsidiary boards for the individual stories.
My alter-ego Claire has lots of boards on Pinterest. Here’s Medieval Eye Candy, which started out with images from illuminated manuscripts but has become a catch-all of interesting images. The Ravensmuir board has a section for each book in that world, from the Rogues of Ravensmuir through the Jewels of Kinfairlie, the True Love Brides and the Brides of Inverfyre. The Champions of St. Euphemia have their own board, and there’s also one for the eye candy of Castles.
Do you use Pinterest? What kind of images do you like to collect there?
