Why Writers Should Love Pinterest and Blog Tour

So I have yet another addiction. Pinterest. (See…I added a Follow Me button).

If I’m stuck riding in the car, sitting at school waiting on my kids, or lying in bed trying to get tired enough to go to sleep, I’ve usually got my phone out pinning.

If you don’t know what pinning is, let me explain. Pinterest is a website that allows you to ‘pin’ images with links to their original site off the internet (or re-pin from Pinterest users) onto a ‘board’ that you designate. For instance, I have a Delicious Recipes board and a My Style board, as well as boards for book characters, favorite reads, favorite quotes, etc. Many writers use Pinterest as a one stop shop for ideas. Setting, character images and inpirational photographs are abundant. You are only limited by what you type in the search box.

I can’t begin to explain how wonderful this resource is.

If you’re a writer, you clearly have a creative gene and Pinterest can help satisfy that in so many ways. Crafty? Search in DIY. Love to cook? Search in Food and Drink. Love books and movies and music? Just search the category. It’s IDEA CENTRAL.

Okay…now that I’ve pitched Pinterest, I want to also pitch my friend and fellow writer Valerie Haight.

Her debut novella Happenstance comes out in December and I’m going to be blogging about her tomorrow as well as asking her a few questions about her experience with publishing. So stop by…she’s precious!! See==> πŸ˜‰
