This week has been a busy one, both on and offline as I’m working on two book reviews (one completed, one underway) an interview, and outlining the short story There is Beauty in the Beast. It’s coming along quite well, and my main worry so far is keeping the telling within the 20,000 word maximum. It’s a brand new story world to me, or at least I think it is, and there are some very interesting notes all ready sounding in the telling of the tale. To help me keep a visual catalog of ideas, I’ve turned to Pinterest. It’s much easier to go and look on my board there then to pull up the various pictures I’ve snipped from the internet and as a bonus, now you can see the ethereal beginnings of the story too (provided you’re interested of course) and take a peek into the gallery that is helping me flesh out the world and the characters. If you want to check it out, click the rose. Oh, and someone had asked on FB why I’m not linking the flowers and such to places where I got them from. Well, because I took them, and so the person to credit is myself. If you want to use one, just please link with credit, and I’m very happy that I have friends who want to keep me honest and giving credit where credit is due.
Have any of you, Scribes, used Pinterest as an “idea board”? Are you more likely to use one if you can keep the content private? What do you think might be the down side of using one that is public?
