I was planning on walking down to my favorite local coffee shop today – and maybe I still will – but I found myself dragging along in the ‘afternoon slump’. But, I was determined. I told myself, that if I found the motivation to write, then I could have a yummy London Fog or Iced Mona Lisa Latte. On the flip side, I said that if I found the motivation to write, then I HAD to walk in the hot hot outside and write at said coffee shop.

I have a free coffee. I feel like this information is important. Also, it’s only five minutes away. Five minutes of heat isn’t fatal, is it? #Idontgooutside

Anyways, in an attempt to motivate myself, I turned to Pinterest and found myself on one of my favorite writing sites:

This site is abounding with awesome writing blogs, catering more specifically to Fantasy and Science Fiction writers. And as I read, I found these excellent articles and thought I would share!

Pinterest: My Partner in Creativity

UPDATE: Many of these boards have now been split to include sub-categories.

I have mentioned Pinterest before, but I thought I might explain a little bit more about my boards, how I used them, and why I find Pinterest oh-so-helpful as an author.

I have four main boards for inspiration, motivation, guidance, and plotting, all rolled into different categories.

More Than Words is my source for articles, worksheets, and references. All of my Neil Gaiman quotes also get pinned here. I don’t use this resource as much as I should, but it is a wonderful treasure chest of information. I always get new ideas and feel motivated towards better story telling after diving into something pinned on this board. It is also very helpful when I am working out the details of a plot or character, because the articles hear give me so many good ideas and points to consider. I haven’t read all of them, but they are always good ways to procrastinate on writing and feel motivated once I finish reading.Read More »
