Over the last two months I have been developing a visual resource for writers.
The link is: http://pinterest.com/helensea/
I will be writing much more about this in the months to come. I update the resource regularly, it’s free to use and you do not need to be a member to access the images.
If you are not familiar with Pinterest, it is a site that enables you to place (pin) photos, images, videos, tips and the like onto pin boards. Others can access your boards and repin items onto their own.
I have taken the images one step further. The main board, Story Starters*, allows you to generate ideas (Narrative Sparks) for your own storylines, using scraps of narrative, dialogue, or suggestions.
Other boards (apart from personal boards that reveal my own interests) represent a physical or emotional aspect of story, e.g. character, setting, costume. weather and so on.
Boards will be continue to be added.
The relevant boards are starred and labelled (Story), e.g. Story – Setting*.
Take a look. I will be suggesting ways to use them as I continue to develop the resource, both on Twitter, Facebook and here on my blog.
