As a writer of fiction, keeping my creative juices flowing is way up there near the top of my list of priorities. I use a variety of methods to do this. Staring off into the distance while daydreaming about scenes from my books is a favourite. And you all know by now how much I love my book soundtracks.
Another one of my favourite tools for creative inspiration is Pinterest. I create a new board for every book I write and then fill it with pictures, quotes, photos, whatever takes my fancy at the time. I especially love to cast actors into the different roles. I mean, if Our Little Secret was going to be made into a movie, who wouldn’t want Stephen Amell to play the role of Scott Mason (yum!). And Channing Tatum as Lincoln Zane in Lost in Amber was a given, especially after I watched Magic Mike XXL.
I’ll admit in the past I’ve spent a lot more time on my personal pinterest boards than I have on my Author boards due to convenience. I’m always logged into my personal boards on my phone. However, a little while ago I logged into my Author Profile on my tablet (I have way too many devices) so I can spend more time developing my book boards, and basically providing photos of hot people for my followers to drool over. It’s a tough job, but I’m willing to take it on.
If you have a Pinterest account and you’d like to enjoy my boards (all of them, or just the ones you prefer), feel free to follow me here. I can personally recommend the ‘Please excuse me while I swoon’ board.
