I’ve always been a huge fan of Pinterest. Maybe it’s because I’m a visual person. I like to “Pin” gluten-free recipes, pictures of tiny houses, and articles about various topics that I plan to read later.
I know several writers who use Pinterest to curate writing tips and inspirational quotes all in one place. And some writers use Pinterest to find visual inspiration for their next story. Add to that list–I’ve started using Pinterest for character and world building.
I created a Pinterest Board for my novel’s teenage protagonist, Nora Wolcott. Nora is an artist, so it just makes sense to me that she would have used Pinterest (had it existed in 2000) as a way to collect the art that inspired her all in one place. I think it’s a fun way to add depth to her character and give the reader some insight into Nora’s tortured artistic mind.
So, without further delay, I present: Nora’s Board.
