If you like it then you shoulda put a pin on it

I'm taking a break from my dystopian by era this week, because I'm finishing book two of The Crewel World trilogy and I have no more words.  Seriously, these are on loan with a scary interest rate.  I should probably use them to tell you something interesting then and not waste them on bad jokes. This is exactly what got me into trouble in college when the pretty plastic fake money came in the mail.

ANYWAY.

Are you on Pinterest?  Because I'm in deep smit with Pinterest (check out my boards here).  It's one of the best writing tools ever.  I use to google images to get inspired to describe a room or a dress or a setting, find one, and trot off to write scene.  The problem with that method is that I could never find the pictures again.  So now I pin them!  Genius!  Anyway I thought I'd share some particularly evocative photos with you that make me think of sci-fi and dystopian stories.










That's sure to impress your date.

LOVE Pinterest and your pins, Genn! It can get a little distracting when you're trying to think of something to write and then realize you're pinning all the cupcake recipes, but such a great platform for writers to share images for WIPs. Mine's here! http://pinterest.com/KatLovesBoho/blatct/

I'm loving Pinterest too as a writing tool. I pin inspirations as well as stuff I might want to use (or already have) in books. But yeah, you can get sucked into looking at pretty pictures of furniture constructed of books, maps of Westeros, or cupcakes made of bacon.
