It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Pinterest for finding inspiration. Not just for my stories but for anything really! I pin food, exercises, places I'd love to visit, places I have visited, quotes, hairstyles, fashion, decorating tips....I'm pretty sure I have a board for anything!
One thing I do love though is using Pinterest to create a visual board of my works in progress. I imagine my characters moving and acting as vividly as if I watching them on a big screen (oh dreams!). On my main computer in my office I have two screens so I usually have my pinterest board up on one, word on the other, my earphones with my custom play list in my ears and a cup of coffee (cos I love me some coffee!) When I'm working on my laptop it's obviously a little more difficult so I generally have pinterest open and switch between Word and Pinterest whenever I need a little more inspiration.
Anyhow, today I am sharing some of the Pinterest inspiration I used when writing First You Were Mine. I looked for a sexy, smouldering military guy and a girl who radiated innocence and optimism for the gorgeous Georgia who falls in love with the wrong guy.
I also looked for settings, which was quite easy since First You Were Mine is set in a real place.
My inspiration is below and don't forget you can always follow me here.
bye for now,
