Visual inspiration

winter-colour-sky

I have come to learn that I am a very visual writer. Until I can picture a scene in my head, I don’t attempt to write it.

Whilst working on my current manuscript, I printed out dozens of images which I kept by my computer, as well as using Pinterest.

stigWhether I need to describe a remote cabin or the way a character looks, I will search for images online that capture the idea I have in mind.

I then simply write what I see in the photo. It works for me every time. Not only that, but many of the images I found gave me plot ideas I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.

Feel free to take a peek at my Pinterest boards.

… I couldn’t resist sharing a photo of Stig.
