Recently, I've joined the new trend and started posting images on Pinterest. At first I thought it would take time from my writing, but then I realized that having an online storyboard is a pretty cool tool.

What better way to feed the plot bunnies? ;)

So, although it's true that I have several 'boards' that don't have much to do with writing, I also have a board marked, Storyboard ~ Angel Marked. This is my current wip. If you've read some of my posts from the past, you'll know this story is centered around Katrina Oakland, a character shapeshifter from Claire: the Lost Fae.

One of the interesting aspects about Pinterest is the wide variety of images I can put on this board. 

For example:

I went in search of some vintage cars to help with descriptive portions of the story. Imagine my surprise when I came across this ambulance. 

Eager to save this antique beauty in a special place, I added it to my wip storyboard.

Now, instead of inserting a scene with a nondescript mention of the ambulance, I can give my readers more detail. (story secrets will not be revealed today) Okay, the ambulance is red and white with a cherry on top. vbg

There are several other items that play a major part in Angel Marked.

Even in my youth I had a fascination for Black Jet. Since this story will also have magical elements, an important piece of jewelry will play a pivotal role.

The idea of using something that comes from the earth, giving it a magical purpose, and hiding it in plain sight makes the plot bunnies very happy. ;)

Since artifacts are always so much fun to play with, the black jet jewelry will have a boundless historical and mythical companion...  

Hope you don't mind the mystery. ;)

Of course we will have a handsome hero... This image is here just to serve as inspiration. He isn't the reason this novella is titled Angel Marked. 

And of course, since this story centers around Katrina, there will be elements of marble. ;) (see Is Your Shape Shifter Sexy Today. You will find one secret about Katrina and her luscious playfulness with marble.)

When it comes to the end of the day (or story) I think that having a place like Pinterest to post and share is another fun aspect of life on the 'Net.

    ;) Yes! Now if I could just figure out how to get images into my computer from my phone. lol Yes, I'm that far behind in photography because I've been so focused on writing and ebook formatting.

    Thanks so much for sharing. Have a magical night.
