Pinterest for Writers
I also use tools in my personal life to keep track of hobbies and projects I have in process. My favorite is Pinterest. I’ve been scheming about ways to use Pinterest to fuel my addiction to all things writing. I’m a visual person, so although I love the ease of Evernote for filing writing information when I find it online, I always feel overwhelmed when I log into my Evernote notebook and see a slew of text-based links. I realized that Pinterest could fix this problem – providing me with visual links to some of my frequently used writing sites online.
I’ve created several new pinboards:
Writing Life (with inspirational and funny quotes for writers);
Creative Writing (where I’m stashing all of the links to ideas for the Creative Writing Club I’m leading at my son’s school);
Editing (links to all of the online checklists I use when I start editing a fiction manuscript); and
Writer’s Bookshelf (where I leave links to my favorite go-to writing books.)
I’m also working on a character and location board for my WIP. Stay tuned for that slew of images. Meanwhile, you can check out my boards here: http://pinterest.com/samill1/ You might learn something about my sewing, knitting and building addictions, too.

Happy writing and happy pinning!
Do you use Pinterest? Have you used it to help your writing process?
P.S. I just made it through my blog reading backlog and realized that they just wrote a post about Pinterest for Book Publicity over at Writers Unboxed last week. Check it out here.
