Have you seen my research photos at Pinterest

I am a relative newcomer to Pinterest and, after seeing how other authors use it, I wish I had discovered it sooner. I have always collected photographs when I am researching my novels, putting them into moods and themes which are both inspiration and factual reassurance. Now I collate all these visual references on Pinterest. For Ignoring Gravity, this means photos of roses [because my key character is called Rose Haldane], trees [family trees, roots, all the tree imagery associated with genealogy] and 1960s life and fashions. See my Pinterest board for Ignoring Gravity here. The board for Connectedness – featuring more roses and trees, plus Picasso, art, and Malaga in Spain – will go online later this year.   ‘Ignoring Gravity’ by Sandra Danby [UK: Beulah Press] Buy now And if you’d like to tweet a link to THIS post, here’s my suggested tweet: Roses, trees, 1960s fashions & designs: my #writing board at Pinterest via @SandraDanby http://wp.me/p5gEM4-2zp

Follow me on Pinterest

If you like collecting visual images, you may enjoy Pinterest. When I first checked it out I was amazed at how much Pinterest content is connected to books, either boards by authors about their books, by book bloggers, designers discussing book cover design, and generally boards about creativity. My current favourite quote was culled from Pinterest:- “For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.” Virginia Woolf [below, portrait by Roger Fry] I have recently started collecting images connected with my writing at my new author page. There are three sections, one devoted to my Spanish blog, a second to Ignoring Gravity, and the third to my general writing. The Ignoring Gravity board includes research photos not shared elsewhere. I will gradually be adding to my boards, so please check back occasionally. Click here to go to my Pinterest page.
