If you are not currently using Pinterest, I highly recommend quickly setting up your account. It’s easy and only takes a couple minutes. Then, be sure to take a moment to say goodbye to your family and friends, as they may not be hearing from you for awhile!
Here are 5 ways to use your own awesome pinning skills to help your writing:
1) Create a board solely for writing inspiration & advice.
Pin pictures that spark an idea, writing prompts, writer’s advice, how-to writing articles, etc. Split them up into as many as you want, but be sure that it’s public so that you can meet other writers!
2) Follow authors & writing boards on Pinterest for inspiration & tips.
Try searching the boards for “writing” or “prompts” or other keywords. Look around for boards that resonate with your writing goals or interests. By following, any new pins pinned to these boards will show up in your main feed, as a running stream of inspiration to your home page. You never know when someone could pin something that strikes an idea! Try write notions, The Write Life or Grammarly writing boards.
3) Create a board for each project you work on.
You can keep these private, but can totally help with organizing your thoughts and build on your ideas with the board. For example, if you are working on a certain blog topic - pin ideas for blog posts strictly for that subject.
4) Visualize interior detail for your settings using Home Decor Category.
This is a great way to really visualize your setting (and a great excuse to be on the Home Decor section too…). Also, try travel boards too for details of other places in the world.
5) Create a Books board.
Read a good book lately? Write a short review on the pin comment. Let everyone know what you’re reading or what you want to read. Keep your readings organized or use as a wishlist. All reading will help your writing get better so go wild, you bookworm you.
write notions has a Pinterest account too. Follow all the boards for more inspiration and writing pins!
But, really, any excuse to be on Pinterest longer is always a win.
