A writing tool

I recently found this service, thanks to Shiloh Walker. It’s call Pinterest and here’s my little area. What it is, is a place where you can “pin” pictures or what have you to electronic bulletin boards, and can add comments to them. I really like the site because I can see how it would be incredibly useful for putting pictures up of characters, places, weapons . . . really it’s limitless. And when you’re working, you might come across a face that totally works for a character. Or it might be someone that you think you want to write about. Or a place. Or a thing. Or a decor.

I’ve started a place board and a character board among a few others. I really like the fact that I can put a pin it button on my Firefox and whenever I run across a picture I want to remember, I can. That include Nation Geographic pics and many others. While the pictures are on your board, they lead back to where you got them, so there’s no copyright infringement. Which is cool.

In order to join, you have to ask to be invited. It took about a week for my invitation to show up, and then it was really quick to get started. Take a look around on all the boards. Think this will help you with your writing?

I just noticed I can send invites out, so if you want to try it, and you want to post your email, do so and I’ll send you an invite.
