Pinterest Can Enhance the Creative Process

Pinterest Can Enhance the Creative Process | BOOK AUTHOR | Scoop.it
A book is made up of words. Those words conjure images. Sometimes, it can help the creative process to collect pictures from the real world as fuel for your imagination. And Pinterest is a great tool for exactly that.

Create a "mood board" for your novel or short story.  I was very impressed some time back to come across the board that Tracey Chevalier made on Pinterest for The Last Runaway - with pictures of landscape and quilting.

"Collectively, the people I follow on Twitter — book nerds, science nerds, journalists, the uncategorizably interesting — come pretty close to my dream community. They also function as by far the best news source I’ve ever used: more panoptic, more in-depth, more likely to teach me something, much more timely, cumulatively more self-correcting and sophisticated. Additionally, they’re immensely generous with their time and knowledge; in contradistinction to most Internet agoras, the Twitter I know is helpful, polite, and friendly. It’s also a meritocracy; say enough interesting things, and other people will begin to engage with you. Surprisingly often, that engagement crosses the digital barrier into real life — and, without exception, the people I’ve befriended on Twitter have turned out to be terrific. "

Very good response to Franzen's assertions that writers are wasting their time on Twitter.
